New candid Nana Visitor interview
 
Hi all, I spoke with Nana Visitor last night and have transcribed the interview over at TrekCore: http://www.trekcore.com/interviews/n...interview.html

She's quite candid about the perception of DS9, friendships amongst the cast, the potential of a DS9 movie and other hot-button topics. Hope you all enjoy reading it. :bolian:

That was a great interview. Nana Visitor, aside from having an awesomely unique name, is among my favorite Trek actors and Kira is by far my favorite Trek female character. She's also one of the main reasons why I like Bajorans so much. The majority of the Bajorans are such strong and driven characters, like Kira and Ro. You rarely see any Bajoran's that are weak or defenseless. And above all, they're survivors. Whatever the universe throws at them, they'll take it and drive on, or die trying.

Kira was one of my favourite DS9 characters, and she was superbly played by Visitor. A class act in interviews too. :)

Nana Visitor IS an awesome name, albeit written down it looks like someone paid to come and keep your elderly relatives company. :p

Seriously, though, that was a great interview. I'm curious about the "sneak away and catch up" comment about Siggid... have they moved on to new partners? If not, they still sound VERY close, so I wonder if "catch up" might have a bit more meaning...

Nana and Sid moved on to other partners a decade ago.

(IMO) The question was in regards to a DS9 reunion, so the "sneak away" comment is just meant to indicate that it'll be a get-together for them, not fans.

Great interview. Thanks for posting. Its fascinating how much she identifies with Kira. She really lived that character for seven years. But at the same time she's still very funny and down to earth. Probably a lot of fun to talk to in person.

great interview :)
I had the pleasure to meet her 2 years ago at a convention and chat a bit with her afterwards. She is incredibly friendly and lively and jumps from one topic to the next like a grasshopper :)

One of the questions asked was how she got into the character for each scene and she admitted that she always finds it extremely difficult to switch from herself to the character, hence she prefers to stay in character all day. That means while she waits for the next take, she's "Major Kira, waiting".
That's quite interesting since most actors prefer to slip out of character while they have a break.

It's interesting that people are saying DS9 is the black sheep of the series. Every new Star Trek fan I talk to, who did not watch the show when it first airs, connects with DS9 by far the most.

Its amazing how committed she was to that character. She used to have Kira dreams when she was doing the show. She was actually shocked when they wanted her to have an affair with Dukat, because she felt like they were asking her to date Hitler. On the DVD interview she was almost crying when she talked about how she could never forgive him for what he did to Bajor. You almost forget that Dukat is a guy in a rubber mask and Bajor is a soundstage.

That is interesting. I showed Past Prologue to a friend who thinks Star Trek is ridiculous, and he was riveted by the show. The quality just jumps out at you, when you give it a chance.
