Trek Untold-Episode 102: Tara Rosling

Tara Rosling joins Trek Untold this week to discuss her time on seasons 3 and 4 of “Star Trek: Discovery” and what it's like to be the President of Ni'Var!

Tara discusses her origins in acting in Canada and what she learned studying at York University, how she went from waitressing to her first film gig, “Extreme Measures” with Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker, balancing stage work in the theater VS on-screen in TV and film and what type of performing she prefers.

From there, we beam into our Trek talk to learn how Tara was cast as President T'rina and how it linked with her playing a repressed Mennonite on “Impulse” along with another character she portrayed elsewhere, her understanding of what a Vulcan is, and how they behave to control their emotions, the method to do a proper Vulcan mind meld, the leadership on and off set with Soneqhua Martin-Green, working with Doug Jones and how the romance between T'Rina and Saru happened, the day Stacey Abrams showed up on set, what it was like to film during the COVID-19 pandemic and how that affected her scenes. Plus, an early role in William Shatner's “Tek War” series, being the voice of Nova on the 90's “Silver Surfer” cartoon, her first time being squibbed on “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3” and more!
