Acting Challenges

How did you approach playing someone who is 80 per cent Borg?

Picture The two biggest challenges with Seven are keeping a straight face, working with all those guys that I had to work with, who are nuts and , because Seven has emotions, she is human, she has all the emotions that everyone else has but she, a) doesn’t know how to express them, and b) is terrified to express them, so they’re all suppressed.

There’s a fine line that you walk between unemotional and then showing too much. So, that challenge was really fun to play as an actor. I mean, this character really was a gift as an actor, because everything is new to Seven, everything was a discovery.
