Re: The Lwaxana Troi Appreciation Thread

She was a fun character. I always wondered, in "Mmanhunt" when she made a comment about Picard's naughty thoughts as she beamed out in the final sequence, whether she was truly detecting naughty thoughts, or was just saying that to tease him.

Lwaxana was annoying and i loved her for it! The reactions she got from Picard, Worf and Deanna were great. And the episode Half a Life was wonderful thanks in part to her beautiful performance.

I never got to meet Majel and that will forever be one of my disappointments in life. I think she was extraordinary!
You hit it sqare on Randi. Being a huge TOS fan ever since I was little, I thought that the way Majel played Lwaxana was brilliant. I have long felt that Majel was highly underrated. Lwaxana was such a departure from Christine Chapel but Majel seemed to handle it with ease. She showed great comedic timing, but could take an over the top silly scene to dead serious in a heart beat. She was a very versitiel and talented lady and I've always enjoyed any episide that had Lwaxana in it.

She used to say that her favorite character to play was Number One from The Cage, but after TNG, she talked about how she loved Lwaxana. She saw her as a very empowered character. She said she always saw Christine Chapel as being too much of a wimp.

Yeah Lwaxana was a scream, always cool to see Picard looking uncomfortable.
