64: Robin Morselli, Background Actor & Stand-in for 120 Episodes of Star Trek

Trek Untold digs deep with this interview with a performer who hasn’t told her story before anywhere.

Robin Morselli was a regular background actor and stand-in, most notably on DS9 as a Bajoran Ops officer (and occasional civilian, and there’s a story about that), as well as appearing in episodes of TNG, Voyager, and Enterprise.

 Robin talks to us about her long and winding road into Hollywood, which included a law degree, being a flight attendant, and working as a hostess at The Bunny Ranch. From there, we discuss some of her other notable roles in film & TV that you can’t find on IMDB, and then it’s all about Star Trek and her time on set.

We discuss how a performer is cast as an extra and what the process is to become a regular among that group, personal stories about her relationships with Nana Visitor, Levar Burton, and James Darren, memories from some specific episodes and moments on set like the DS9 finale and the Voyager episode “Tsunkatse” with The Rock, being a Klingon at the Billboard’s Award show to perform a skit with Shaq, Scott Bakula’s Christmas parties, and more. Robin also informs us about her Parkinson’s diagnosis and how that has affected her life today, along with the activism and advocacy she does about this disease.
