The Edge: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast

Sep 7, 2018

Each character in a television series is merely words on paper when created. But, when portrayed by actors, these characters come to life. Each actor brings their unique talent, spirit, and interpretation to the lines crafted by the writers and makes the character their own. Personal stories add another layer of complexity and, when combined the ongoing ideas of the writers and creative vision of directors, form a rich and interesting story.

In this episode of The Edge, hosts Patrick Devlin and Amy Nelson are joined by Hayley Stoddart of Standard Orbit to discuss the actors who bring to life our beloved Star Trek: Discovery characters. We discuss the specific contributions each actor has brought to the show. We also explore how, in this age of social media, the actors are more visible and accessible to the fans than ever before and their interactions with us personally—and within fandom in general.
