#Quote
1 When I started out on Star Trek: Voyager (1995), they had to tell me everything about Star Trek, because I knew nothing about it. I had never seen the original series, I had never seen Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). I think I'd seen a couple of episodes here and there - of the original series, probably. Never seen Voyager. Didn't know what a Borg was. They gave me a copy of Star Trek: First Contact (1996), the movie, so I could at least see what a Borg was. They also gave me a copy of the Star Trek Encyclopedia, whatever it is, so that I could bone up on my Star Trek knowledge. Fortunately, it sort of worked for the character that I wouldn't know any of the backstories of the people on Voyager, because she was coming in cold, like I was. That was actually helpful as opposed to detrimental.
2 [on her Seven of Nine costume] Initially, I would stay in the costume much longer than I ended up staying in it, because it takes about twenty minutes to get into. Someone has to dress me and undress me. It's a production break if I have to get out of the costume to use the rest room or something. It grinds to a halt unless they can shoot something without me, which typically they can't, if it's a scene that I'm in. So in the interest of being a team player, the first season, I would not take rest room breaks, I just didn't drink anything on set, which is not the healthiest thing to do.
3 There are three things pageant women do. There's the Vaseline thing, which I didn't do. There's duct taping your boobs, which I never did because I'm not into pain. The third thing is using athletic spray adhesive on your butt to keep your swimsuit in place. I did do that. So one out of three ain't bad.
4 [on her ex-husband Jack Ryan who is running for United States Senator in Illinois] He's a good man and good father.
