Happy Birthday, Terry Farrell! (November 19)

Here are a few quotes from Terry on playing Jadzia Dax:

"I wanted to be the female Indiana Jones. I wanted to be Lara Croft."

- At Star Trek: Las Vegas 2013, on how much she loved doing fight scenes as Jadzia Dax.

" I think what interested me most was trying to find her strength. She wasn’t defensive at all; she was always calm and relaxed and confident. She had a peaceful, mature way about her. I think that’s what I held on to. I don’t think I really attained that for myself, without being Dax, until I had a child. But I think that playing her was actually my anchor to feeling safe in the world at that time. Playing Dax made me feel like I was secure and I was safe." [x]

On The Delta Quadrant podcast, October 2013:

"I found frustrating that there was a while where they made my character, I felt, very shallow…There was a period where I would be asking Nana’s character about what she was up to or who she was dating…that kind of gossipy thing. And I thought that was really kind of sad. I always figured Dax being 350 years old would mean I would have an accumulation of wisdom of those seven lifetimes."

"The worm’s been in a man too, so it’s totally going to affect her sensibilities and how she moves around in the world!"

"In Star Trek land, I’m not a misfit. I fit!…So what I always want to portray to young women is that you fit, no matter what you look like, your body type or whatever. You have value and you fit."

Someone asked Terry if she wanted any specific romantic story lines and she went “I was just glad to have a plotline, I’d have been happy if Dax had had a relationship with, say, Kira” I screamed

Terry Farrell on being cast as Jadzia Dax

Dax only really had two shows this season [You Are Cordially Invited… and Change of Heart] and they were both with Michael [Dorn]. Other than those two episodes not very much happened to Dax this year. Maybe they wrote me light to see if I would give in and sign a contract, or maybe it’s really what Ira [Steven Behr] said, which is that some characters get a little lost in the shuffle. Sometimes the writers give a character a couple of big shows and that’s it. So I guess I loved the idea of Dax and Worf together, but only liked the reality of them being together.

This is a photo of Terry Farrell and Isabella Rossellini, who are two of the greatest people in the universe. My life is now fulfilled. I’m pretty sure no one cares about this except me.
