mary Wiseman’s motor-mouthed ensign has a new hero…
What does tilly think of captain Pike?
She’s pretty impressed by him. I think Tilly’s someone who’s deeply hungry for a mentor at all times – just collects people to look up to, and strong-arms them into teaching and guiding her. And he’s kind of a superstar; he’s a well-known, wellrespected captain. She’s very excited to serve under him, and is a little flustered when she has to talk to him.
How did it feel to be the first person to say “fuck” on Star Trek?
I swear to all that is holy, I didn’t even clock it! I didn’t think twice, because I curse with relish every day – it’s a very integrated part of my vocabulary. So when we did it I had no idea that it’d be such a big deal, but of course it was. I’m delighted to be a part of history. I’m proud! My parents are proud!
