Wendy Crewson Beams Aboard Discovery
Later this year, CBS will be releasing a new Star Trek television series entitled “Star Trek Discovery“. The show will be on the streaming services AllAccess (USA), CraveTV (Canada), and Netflix (rest of world).
All previous Star Trek television series were filmed in California, however Discovery is being filmed outside the US – in Toronto, Canada. Toronto, known locally as Hollywood North, has a large pool of talent to draw from, and an ethnically and culturally diverse population for Star Trek to choose from.
We’re getting word that local actor, Wendy Crewson, has been cast in Discovery to play a Starfleet Admiral. We’re unsure of her character’s name, her species, or how many episodes she will be in, but this is certainly an interesting casting.
Crewson is a Canadian actor with an extensive list of credits to her name. Some scifi fans may have seen her in the hit series Ascension. Crewson’s awards include Canadian Screen Award for Best Performance and multiple Gemini awards for Best Performance.
