Nana Visitor Talks DS9, Kira's Hair, Moving Back to New York

TrekCore has a terrific new interview with Nana Visitor in advance of her appearance at Destination London this weekend. Here's an excerpt:

TrekCore: What are your honest thoughts about the Kira/Odo relationship. How did you feel when you first found out where the writers were going to go with it?

Nana Visitor: Well, you know – honestly – I was disappointed. I thought it was so great to have a deep friendship between people who worked together that wasn’t romantic. I thought “Oh, here we go, the moonlighting thing – everyone always has to end up in a romance.” But then I had a very deep friendship with Alexander Siddig that ended up with a baby, so I had to go “Well, you know what? This is truthful! It happens!”

TrekCore: Art imitating life

Nana Visitor: Yes, exactly! Laughs

TrekCore: Were you pleased with how Kira and Odo turned out in the end, did it come around for you?

Nana Visitor: Oh it absolutely came around for me. I thought it was a beautiful love story, and a real love story that they both understood that he had to go back to the soup. Laughs

TrekCore: You and René had such an awesome chemistry on screen, does that transcend into a good friendship offscreen?

Nana Visitor: Oh absolutely! We have plans to have dinner Friday night in London. I can’t wait to see him, he’s one of my favorite people.
