what’s the weirdest thing you’ve had to do as an actor? force field acting is a special treat that we got on star trek, which was really fun! [x]

Jeri Ryan has said that those years she spent playing Seven of Nine were not pleasant. Kate Mulgrew treated her badly and the suit was horrible and uncomfortable and it took so long to come off that she didn’t eat or drink on set so she wouldn’t have to go to the bathroom.

The borg suit, as we know, cut off the blood flow to her brain so she fainted several times.

So I’m thinking that it must have taken something really good, a really good story and opportunity, for Jeri to even consider coming back and playing Seven again. It makes me hopeful.

WAIT WHAT THE FUCK I DIDN’T KNOW THIS. SEVEN IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER HOW FUCKING DARE THEY *anger fumes*

Her borg costume made it hard for her to breathe and pressed on her carotid artery, preventing blood flow to her brain so she fainted. The catsuit was so tight she couldn’t sit down and if she wanted out of it to pee they had to stop filming because it took like 20 minutes. So she avoided eating or drinking on set to avoid this. During work days that can sometimes last for 18 hours.

Not to mention Kate Mulgrew really disliked her and made them working together sometimes very difficult. (They have since made peace). So the whole 4 years was hazardous to her physical and mental health.

I have talked about this before but it never gets to a point where I can accept they did that to Jeri and move on.

I read an interview with Uma Thurman recently where she talks about, among other things, what Quentin Tarantino did to her during the filming of Kill Bill. Against her strong objections he forced her to drive a car a stunt man should have been driving and crashed, a crash she still has injuries from. Had she ultimately refused he would have labelled her difficult to work with, effectively blacklisting her in Hollywood, and we might not have known her name now.

And that scene where her character is strangled with a chain? That’s Tarantino himself doing that.

This is the conditions young actresses has to work under. Either accept these insane, inhumane conditions that are harmful, dangerous or life threatening or we’ll find someone else.

Seven of Nine struggles to understand the purpose of sculpture.
