Trek Untold-Episode 133: Bruce Horak
Bruce Horak's Journey Through Strange New Worlds
Bruce Horak played Hemmer for the first season of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” on Paramount Plus. This Aenar (a member of the Andorians) was chief engineer aboard the Enterprise, serving under Captain Pike, and was a mentor to Uhura through his distinguished service on that vessel. On this episode of Trek Untold, we meet the renaissance man underneath all that makeup, Bruce Horak.
Bruce made history as the first visually impaired actor to appear in a Star Trek series and brought a unique perspective to his character. Beyond Star Trek, Bruce has an inspiring life story that he uses his art to tell, from the cancer that led to his blindness to the way he interprets the world around him due to his impairment. He is a profound stage performer, expressive painter, and one heck of a Starfleet crewman!
We discuss some of Bruce's work on stage as well as how he grew up, the way he paints, and plenty of tales from the set of SNW, including working with Anson Mount, Celia Rose Gooding, and the entire cast from that spectacular show, and a ton more in this extensive and in-depth interview with one of the most beloved characters from that debut season.
