Happy Birthday to Jolene
Keeping with the Voyager tradition of a cat-suited babe on the ship, Star Trek Enterprise turned to Jolene Blalock, to play the Vulcan sub-commander T’Pol who started out at odds with Captain Archer and crew but grew to be a loyal member of the crew and even had her own romance. While there to up the sexy quotient on the show, Blalock deliver a nuanced performance and one of the more satisfying arcs for the series over four years. Here she is talking about what she brought to the bridge of the NX-01.
Jolene’s latest role: Mom + upcoming indie movie
Since her time with Star Trek Blalock has kept busy, doing a number guest roles on TV, including a recurring role on Mike Sussman’s fantasy series Legend of the Seeker last year. Here are some clips of Jolene as Sister Nicci.
However that run had to be cut short after the actress became pregnant leading to her latest role as mother of a new baby, born to her and husband Michael Rapino last summer.
But Jolene does have one new upcoming project with a small role (shot in 2009) in the indie movie One Kine Day about "the darker side" of growing up in Hawaii. Blalock plays the troubled mother of one of the teens in the film, here is a clip.
One Kine Day is doing the festival circuit now, including screening at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival March 10th-20th. More info at www.onekinemovie.com.
