Susan Gibney

  1. Kate Mulgrew, Star Trek: Voyager, TV, 1995-2001. Gibney was an early favourite of writer-producer Rick Berman, but proved too young-looking despite special make-up tests.   The LA Times said three actresses were up for Captain Kathryn Janeway, first female skipper in star fleet history, circa 2371. Oh no, many, many more were taking exams for the historic job… Karen Austin, Nicola Bryant, Lynda Carter, Joanna Cassidy, Lindsay Crouse, Pattyu Duke, Chelsea Field, Erin Gray, Linda Hamilton, Kate Jackson, Patsy Kensit, Carolyn McCormack, Tracy Scoggins, Helen Shaver, Lindsay Wagner, Mary Woronov. Plus three guys – Californian Gary Graham, posh Londoner Nigel Havers and intense San Antonian Rene Rivera – if Paramount suits turned too macho about about having a dame messing with their space toys. Gibney won two chapters each on Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. But not….
  2. Alice Krige, Star Trek: First Contact, 1995.   The Californian Gibney was next short-listed for the Borg Queen.
