Chase Materson interview

There was a nice interview with Chase Materson (Leeta) in Forbes Magazine recently:

http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelv...r-who-spinoff/

Here is a lovely quote from the article:

You know, a lot of times actors on shows really don’t want the guest stars to be that good. It’s their show and they don’t want anyone else coming in week to week. And that didn’t happen on Deep Space Nine. The cast was very welcoming and generous. I think that speaks very highly of the producing team who put the show together. And, it certainly fits with the heart of the show. So it was really a blessing.
Interviews like this really make me wish I was a fly on the wall of the set during the taping of this series. It also makes me hope to meet some of the actors someday. They seem like interesting people.

The fact that we saw such a large group of recurring actors shows how generous the main cast was.

Cue the stupidly sexist spammers en masse, who eventually cause this thread to be closed. *sigh*

I met Chase once. She's so lovely. Made me an even bigger fan of hers!

Yep--and of course, she's a poster on the BBS! (Though her appearances tend to be tragically cut short by said sexist PUNKS! *sigh*)

So why are you all but waving a red flag in front of the trolls?

Anyways, it was a good interview and thanks for posting it dub. I especially liked reading how the guest cast united during the last episode one last time, even those like her who weren't in it.

Excellent point.

The interview was good to read. She seems like a genuinely nice person.

I find it difficult to understand that some people got their jollies by forcing her off the BBS.

You know...

I always found her charactor annoying and pointless but it was a nice peek into the show!

Re: Chase Masterson interview

She did a fine job with the character of Leeta, and truly turned what could have been a one-note appearance INTO a character (similar to so many recurring actors on DS9)

She's also very nice and giving to the fans at conventions and a talented singer.

Hopefully she chooses to check back in on these boards sooner rather than later.

*fixed typo on the thread title

Hey--in my defense, they never needed me, before.

Frankly, I've actually found that, often, warning ahead of time can actually prevent the otherwise inevitable. Not always, I know...but often.




On a more positive note: I remember when she showed up at a thread some time ago, and answered our questions. I recall asking her about a talk show she'd planned on doing, some year back ("Geek Chic" it was called--it was advertised in the old Star Trek: The Magazine). She noted to me that nothing had come of it, unfortunately--it hadn't gotten past the planning stages, I believe.

Ah, well. I personally wouldn't mind listening to podcasts of her commentary. C'est la vie, I suppose.

Wait, when did that happen? Sounds like revisionist history to me.

The version of revisionist history I heard when I asked a few months ago involved an angry significant other.

That's...probably either a reference to said trolls (and really...who'd want to remain with a thread where posters are degrading them, making sexist remarks or actually posting naked pictures?), or to a prior moderator some time back, who thought it wasn't really Miss Masterson and promptly banned her. (It was temporary, thank goodness.)
