Trek Untold Episode 14: Juliana Donald
Today's guest is only one degree of separation away from Patrick Stewart, and Kermit the Frog! Juliana Donald got her start in Hollywood with a major role in “The Muppets Take Manhattan” and followed it up with appearances in many other shows and films en route to appearing three times in the Star Trek universe.
Juliana first appeared in the season three episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” titled “A Matter of Perspective”, and followed it up a few years later in the third season “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” episode where she seductively rubbed Quark's ears in “Prophet Motive”. Her last appearance saw her in the bizarre interactive video game, “Star Trek: Borg”.
In this episode, we discuss working on one of the hardest to shoot episodes of TNG that was ultimately panned, being directed on DS9 by Rene Auberjonois in his first time under that role, a hilarious story about Armin Shimmerman, and why the Borg video game was the death knell for her career in Trek.
Plus, Juliana's theatre background, working on her first film with Jim Henson and The Muppets, working with Woody Allen and Mia Farrow on “The Purple Rose of Cairo” doing voiceover work in Anime before it was as popular as it is today, being on an episode of “Murder She Wrote,” with Angela Lansbury, Roddy McDowall, Bill Maher, Dee Wallace, and Brad Dourif, working on “Walker, Texas Ranger” with Chuck Norris & Sheree Wilson, “The X-Files”, and Dennis Franz on “NYPD Blue”, and much more.
