ICYMI: Jeri Ryan had competition for the role of Seven of Nine, here are the other actresses that producers considered for the part of former Borg drone on Star Trek: Voyager.
Sadly the Star Trek family lost a great today with the passing of Barry Jenner, who played Admiral William Ross on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Jenner was an accomplished television actor appearing on many popular series including Dallas, Knotts Landing, Family Matters, and of course Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
In every interview with Jenner I’ve ever seen he expresses how much he loved being a part of Star Trek. Here he is talking about his roll as an admiral during the Dominion war and paying tribute to those who really put their lives on the line as others.
Barry Jenner was an awesome actor, a delight at conventions, and a wonderful person, he will be missed by many!
