ABOUT THIS ACTOR

Kate Mulgrew (American) is best known to international audiences as being the first female Federation starship captain in her role of "Captain Kathryn Janeway" in the sci-fi television series Star Trek: Voyager. But her background is firmly in theatre, with several performances on and off Broadway, including her current role as "Katherine Hepburn" in the one woman play Tea At Five.

She has worked extensively in television for many years, putting in an appearance in many of the popular 1980 and early 1990 television series. I, like many others, became aware of her from her work on Star Trek a couple of years ago. Not being a fan of the series, I found myself channel surfing one night, when the unmistakable Star Trek uniforms and com badges appeared on my screen. I was about to switch channels again when an actress walked into the scene that stopped me in my tracks.

She was strong and determined, totally believable in a very unrealistic setting and got me immediately hooked with her delivery and presence. So began my fascination with Captain Kathryn Janeway and the woman behind her - Kate Mulgrew.

Kate has a great strength that fits the role of Captain perfectly. She is commanding and makes no apologies. She is also not your flash-in-the-pan nubile young thing, and her maturity and sense of self makes her one of the most beautiful actors I have seen on this series.

She has that indefinable quality that makes her eternally beautiful. Warmth, a sense of fun and a sense of experience that makes her beauty more than skin deep - and therefore all the more lasting.

WHAT MAKES HER BEAUTIFUL?

As an actor: Her strength, her warmth and generosity, her charisma.

As a person: Her work with disadvantaged and terminally ill children, her support of charities.
