Trek Untold Episode 19: Chase Masterson Answers Your Questions About “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”!
You may know Chase Masterson best as Leeta from Star Trek DS9, or as Chase describes her character, “the Michelle Obama of Ferenginar”! Most recently, Chase starred in the sci-fi parody film “Unbelievable!!!!!” alongside 40 other actors from across the Star Trek universe.
We cover a lot of topics in this insightful interview, including working with Garrett Wang & Tim Russ on “Unbelievable!!!!!” and we answer a ton of DS9 questions submitted by listeners like you!
Chase explains how the role of Leeta went from a one-time appearance into a broader role, the secret backstory she created for the character's origins and motivations, sharing her first kiss on-screen ever with Max Grodenchik. The ad-lib Robert Picardo said immediately after, memories from some of her favorite episodes “Bar Association,” “Profit and Lace,” and “Doctor Bashir, I Presume,.” If her looks helped or hindered her career and the sexuality of Star Trek, memories of working with Cecily Adams and Aron Eisenberg, and much more! Plus, working with Mel Brooks on “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and the untold story about her role in the film!
We also spend some time discussing her TED Talk, “How to Be More Powerful Than You Can Possibly Imagine,” and the mission of her charitable organization, the Pop Culture Hero Coalition.
