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!

eat and live with intention and greedy joy

After MacGyver is informed of a bomb planted at a funeral, he receives a head injury that causes amnesia. Will our hero remember in time, even with the killer close at hand?
