Trek Untold

Hosted ByMatt Kaplowitz

"Trek Untold" is the Star Trek podcast that goes beyond the stars! This show features guests including character actors, stunt performers, directors, writers, VFX artists, and the behind-the-scenes people who make the Star Trek universe boldly go where no sci-fi franchise has gone before.

Trek Untold-Episode 108: Ian & Emma Ho

Ian and Emma Ho Explore “Strange New Worlds”

At 12 years old, Ian and Emma Ho are my youngest guests ever on this show! These twins appeared in the first season of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” with Ian as The First Servant in “Lift Us Where Suffering Cannot Reach” and Emma as Oriana in “All Those Who Wander.”

Joined by their dad for their first interview together, we learn about what got this pair interested in acting and how they entered the world of Show Biz, their earliest roles, having fun swearing on-screen (much to the chagrin of Mom and Dad), some of their voiceover work including PJ Masks as Carly and Cartoka, and their time on the sci-fi hit “The Expanse.”

From there, we move on to Trek to discuss their memories from on set and what it's like to perform on Star Trek as a kid! We discuss makeup, what a shoot day on SNW was like for them, hanging out with the other actors on set, some of the incredible special effects and stunts they saw firsthand, and much more!

Plus, Anson Mount's thoughts on how to handle bullies, how the parents feel about some of the mature themes in these episodes, and some very sage advice from these young actors, who you will surely see a lot more of as they continue to grow and book more gigs!

NOTE: Due to some connectivity issues, the video is rough for the first third and gets better for the second half, but it's rarely perfect.
