Interviews | Marina Sirtis
Rep in Space

Is there anything you'd like to tell us about the whole experience of The Next Generation?

Picture I did a lot of theatre in England before I came to Los Angeles. You get this camaraderie, especially when you're doing a musical, this great feeling of togetherness, family and fun. Everyone is trying to corpse everybody else - that happens in the English theatre. I never thought I would ever have that camaraderie reproduced on a TV show or on a movie, but that was exactly what it was like on our show.

It was as if we were a rep in Worthing, doing a space show. I tend not to watch the series anymore, because it's not on in Los Angeles, but occasionally we get one of the movies on cable. I watched Generations a couple of weeks ago, and got very nostalgic. It's like there's a hole. Unfortunately, if the next movie is our last one, that hole is going to not be filled up all the time. I'm getting all emotional but I feel like there's a hole now, and I miss them.
