Sure, it's not like Beltran was under contract ... oh wait.
I actually thought that was one of the few episodes where I could stand having kids play a major role. They acted just like normal kids would in a situation like that and I loved how Picard had to let go of his initial uncomfortable attitude towards children and get them going.
Maybe he should have just done a bad job and acted horri ... oh wait.
He shouldn't complain TOO much. He did get a few romantic scenes with 7 near the end and that's gotta be worth something.
That's a pretty good suggestion. Beltran had some very lousy performances but occasionally some good ones. Definitely not what I'd call a seasoned actor, but certainly better than Blalock. She had only a handful of engaging moments in the series. Most of the time she was so stiff. I don't think she really got the gist of how to behave like a Vulcan. Mark Lenard was superb, perhaps even better than Nimoy. You could definitely see personality behind the wall of emotional control.
I'd say Crosby was the worst and I agree with what someone else said--it was good she ejected herself from the series when she did. How her career turned out afterward certainly tells a lot.
About on a par with most Star Trek actors I'd say.
Most Trek actors were not reduced to doing soft-core porn.
When did she do this, and in what movies.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0284427/ Plus at least one other episode.
Jolene Blalock is just the all-time worst. clearly hired to be the resident sex object and fill out that ridiculous uniform. really hoping we can skip this crewmember requirement on the next Star Trek series.
Walter Koenig and Garrett Wang can't act. Beltan and some others are wooden but they at least possess some acting skill even if it's not much to write home about. Simon Pegg is appalling as Scotty but he's good in other movies.
First, welcome to the board.
Second, please don't bump long dead threads. This one hadn't had a reply in three years.
