Nana was guest at DeepCon in Italy March 14-17, 2013. A kind soul recorded her Q&A session and posted it on YouTube for us to enjoy. Here's part 3 in which Nana talks about getting “a different kind of attention” when she played the Intendent in the alternate DS9 universe:
Several of you have emailed asking about Nana’s safety in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. She and her family are safe and well, if a bit waterlogged! Nana appears in this video from PBS, around the 0:45 mark, describing the flooding as the Hudson River rose under the onslaught.
Watch Sandy Aftermath Affects Millions in New York and New Jersey on PBS. See more from PBS NewsHour.
Thanks to all who inquired and who sent in the video link!
The official Star Trek Facebook page posted a bunch of photos from last weekend’s Destination London event. Here are pics of Nana Visitor on stage with fellow DS9 stars Andrew Robinson, Rene Auberjonois, Cirroc Lofton, and Chase Masterson.
Nana Visitor is at Destination London this weekend, celebrating all things Star Trek with fans and other cast members. She posed in front of the photo wall sporting a new blonde ‘do (click for larger photos).
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.
Nana Visitor was in Germany for a convention a couple of years ago, and German site SciFi News sat down with her for a 15-minute chat about her role as Freddy’s mother in the Friday the 13th remake, cooking, living in New Mexico, working with Seth MacFarlane, and much more. Although this was recorded in September 2010, it seems that they’ve just released the the video on YouTube, which is great for those of us who haven’t seen it yet!
Amazon has been adding some TV classics to their instant video service, and Nana Visitor fans are benefiting! Nana guest starred in a 1986 episode of Knight Rider which is now available to watch instantly on Amazon for just $1.99.
Here’s the synopsis for the episode, titled “Hills of Fire”:
While investigating a mysterious fire in a beautiful park, Michael (David Hasselhoff) uncovers a $10 million drug trafficking operation. With David Raynr, Nana Visitor.
