Last year my friend Kat Steel was at script reading with the cast of “Fresh Hell” where they asked “does anyone know a make-up artist” Kat recommended me and asked me if I’d like to work on Brent Spiner’s webseries to which my answer was “You mean Brent Spiner as in “Data” Brent Spiner???? HELL YES!
Now before I continue with this story let me preface it with a few facts. My whole family sat down every week to watch Star Trek TNG being our favorite show. I can remember discussing and guessing what would happen next in-between commercial breaks. We always hoped that the next episode would be a “Data Show” loving the episodes that featured our dearest character. I never thought Id meet my beloved android much less work with him!
Working in L.A. has a strange way of fulfilling your dreams. It’s never the romantic experience you dreamt of as a child but comes to you always in a unexpected way. Needless to you say I was nervous to meet him first day on set but as soon as he introduced himself all my butterflies vanished and I was able to do my job. Brent is one of the most down to earth people I’ve meet with a smartass attitude that I love! During our time on set I never told him how much I loved with his character or even admitted to being a Trekkie which is hard to do when your fangirl. Working with him and Kat was one of my favorite experiences of 2010 and I hope we get to make more episodes. Oh! and I’m also in the opening credits on the left as his date on the red carpet!! Anyway. I don’t like to brag but yeah sooooo I’m Data’s make-up artist and girlfriend 😉
Please watch the show and if you like it share it with your friends, its really funny!
Live long and Prosper
