Diora Baird Talks About Her Role as An Orion in Star Trek September 20, 2008by TrekMovie.com Staff , Filed under: ST09 Cast , trackback
Looks like we can add another pretty face to the cast of the new Star Trek movie. In an interview (and photo shoot) with Maxim, 25 year-old actress and former Guess girl model Diora Baird talks about her role an a ‘green girl’ (Orion) in JJ Abrams new movie.
According to Baird she plays the ‘green girl’ in the new Star Trek movie, but she doesn’t seem exactly clear on what that means.
Maxim: So you’re an alien?
Baird: Um, I would assume so—unless I was born with a skin disease. In the original series, there were these infamous green women that Captain Kirk would hit on, and so without giving too much away, I’m one of those green girls.
So she may not be ready for a Trek trivia contest, but Baird has a couple dozen film and TV credits already, including Wedding Crashers, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and guest spots on Shark and The Loop. And it appears she has what it takes to play an alluring Orion. Baird can be seen now in the Dane Cook comedy My Best Friend’s Girl, which opened this weekend.
