123: Annette Helde Boldly Goes from Stage To Screen

Annette Helde is a five-time veteran of the Star Trek world, first appearing in the DS9 episode “Visionary” as a Romulan, followed by Takar on the frightening VOY episode “Scientific Method,” and then Lieutenant Nadia Larkin on the DS9 classic “The Siege of AR-558”. She also appeared in “Star Trek: First Contact” as a Starfleet officer on the Enterprise who was assimilated by the Borg, and an alien musician named Aleria in the “Star Trek: Klingon” video game.

 Annette is another guest who has not done many interviews, so hearing her stories is a real treat. We learn all about her various Michael Westmore alien makeups, how working on a stage show helped her find the character from “The Siege of AR-558”, the connection between the Klingon video game and “First Contact,” and other untold tales from her time on “Star Trek” shows.

 Much of her career was in the theater world, and Annette also told us about her stage education, how being a rower in college helped her acting, performing with Star Trek alumni and acting great F. Murray Abraham in “Antigone,” and some amazing advice and insight into performing on stage.

 Plus, working on the “Mr. Bean” movie with Rowan Atkinson and “Nixon” with Anthony Hopkins, “Titanic” with Kathy bates, and more!
