Trek Untold-Episode 91: Anthony Lake, The Ferengi of the 32nd Century

The internet broke when the first look at the Ferengi was revealed for “Star Trek: Discovery” season four, and now we learn all about this new iteration of this classic alien from the actor under the makeup, Anthony Lake.

Anthony first appeared as a Romulan spectator on Ni'Var in “Unification, Part 3” and returned in season four to portray ALL the Ferengi characters seen on camera!

 Lake explains how his interest in star trek came through horror makeup, scenes left on the cutting room floor from his time on Trek, tips for sitting in the makeup chair, and the different prosthetic processes, hairs, and wardrobes for each character he played.

Plus, his unique path into acting and why much of his career involves prosthetics and intense makeup, his first big break on “Defiance,” his first dose of prosthetics in “The Strain,” becoming Blavglad the Exsanguinator in “What We Do In The Shadows,” and the most NSFW thing ever discussed on the show, Anthony's time as the porn version of Jack From Jupiter in “The Boys.”
