Trek Untold Episode 20: Avaah Blackwell, Osnullus from “Star Trek Discovery”

It's no easy task to put on prosthetics in the Star Trek universe, but Avaah Blackwell is one actress that is up for the task. She went from a model to actress and is now on the road to being a stunt performer.

You would know Avaah from her role in “Star Trek: Discovery,” but you've never seen her face since she plays a peculiar looking alien who serves aboard the Discovery called the Osnullus.

Avaah discusses the strange circumstances that led her to win the role of Osnullus, what it was like wearing the head for the first time, advice she received from Doug Jones, working with Jason Isaacs and Anson Mount, why she says the DISCO set is one of the best she has been on, and more Star Trek stories.

Plus, we talk about her international education in acting, a few of the interesting short films Avaah appeared in, her time on “12 Monkeys”, making “Fan Girl Fights” with her friend, and her new career in stunt performing, including her time in an MMA movie and on the upcoming “Jupiter's Legacy” show.
