Star Trek: Discovery‘s Tig Notaro appeared on Conan, where she spoke about how she got her Discovery name, Jett; and other topics such as her Amazon series One Mississippi (now canceled) and Tom Cruise.
Notaro wasn’t at all keen on her character’s name (Denise Reno) when she first heard it. “Can’t we like take it up a notch?” she asked.
Watch the video below to see why she chose the nickname, and her action scenes on Discovery which include explosions and “jumping on mattresses.”
