Marina Sirtis

  1. Josette Simon, Blake’s 7, TV, 1980-1981.        Seen for Dayna Mellanby in what Terry Nation (also the creator of Doctor Who’s Daleks) pitched as The Dirty Dozen In Space… Marina went on to greater glory as Deanna Troi in 176 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, 1987-1994.
  2. Mathilda May, Lifeforce, 1984.
  3. Denise Crosby, Star Trek: The Next Generation, TV, 1987-1994.         She was sure she’d ruined her audition for Lieutenant Tasha Yar and was about to fly home when she asked to be the half human-half Betazoid Counselor Deanna Troi. Tasha lasted 31 episodes, Troi had 176 – and more as Marina is among six actors to play the same character on three different Treks: Next Generation, Voyager and Enterprise.
