The new movie is out now, it’s hard to believe that over twenty years ago Star Trek: The Next Generation appeared on the small screen. On September 28, 1987, I watched “Encounter At Farpoint” , the pilot. Part of the appeal was the sexy Counselor Deanna Troi. Marina Sirtis was one of the first desktop wallpapers I put on my brand new 486.
She’s been busy since Trek (from Wikipedia):
After the end of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1994, Sirtis continued to work regularly. She provided the voice of Demona in the Disney animated television series Gargoyles, (1994-1996 and two one off specials). She voiced the character again for an episode of the unmade Animated Series Team Atlantis.
Sirtis popularly appeared in episodes of other science fiction television shows; The Outer Limits, Stargate SG-1 and Earth: Final Conflict. Her other guest starring roles include Diagnosis: Murder, Threat Matrix (playing a Bio-weapons scientist from Iraq), The Closer, a three episode recurring role on Girlfriends and Without a Trace.
She also has done voice work for computer games, as the character Matriarch Benezia for the Xbox 360 and PC 2007 RPG Mass Effect, as well as Deanna Troi in Star Trek: A Final Unity and Star Trek: Generations PC Games.
Sirtis has read a few audio books including Powers That Be, by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Anne Scarborough.
I can see why she’s been busy:
