Nana Visitor: Leaving DS9 was "painful"
 
Nana Visitor says in this interview that leaving DS9 was painful because they were more than a family - they were a tribe. They belonged together. I thought that was beautifully stated. It's something I felt about the cast and extended cast even as a viewer.

...And she's still gorgeous! :)

I like that. It's nice to hear that they don't have anything negative to say about the experience. Except for the long hours.

Cool.

Never knew she was in family guy... though I never watched it much. Not really my thing. Interesting interview though.

Visitor has been in quite a few Family Guy episodes now, although she typically voices the mother of some woman Brian is dating.

Well she's looking older(who isn't?), but dang you couldn't tell she's 56.

Wow she looks great! I'm almost through rewatching DS9 on Netflix and Kira remains one of my favorite characters in the Trek universe.

What a lovely, delightful lady! I think it's always fair to remind everyone just how hard working on a weekly series, especially in a leading role is. They makes lots of money and (hopefully) advance their careers, but they earn it.

I read one previous interview where Nana said she had difficulty with the makeup she was required to wear in S3's "Second Skin", when Kira was altered to be a Cardassian. She stated having a bad case of claustrophobia and felt the makeup was extremely confining and at times tried to rip it off her face before the artists had to settle her down in order to properly do it themselves. She had about the same problem in "Heart of Stone" when Kira was in a growing crystal trap. Nana felt just as confined and personally despised shooting that episode. These were about the only negative experiences for Nana, who was overall excellent as Kira Nerys.

I like the story about her forgetting that she was in that episode. After all it's just work for them, please remember that, people.

It was totally worth it though. Seeing Kira as a Cardassian was one of the more shocking moments for me in the series. A part of me wishes they left it a question as to whether or not she was really Cardassian or Bajoran after that episode.

Poor Andrew Robinson suffered from claustrophobia as well, but unfortunately his character really was Cardassian!

Thanks for posting that video. I love Kira - she's my favourite Star Trek character overall.
