Star Trek star wants Picard cameo but rules out working with Quentin Tarantino

Stat Trek: The Next Generation star Marina Sirtis has expressed an interest in wanting a cameo in the forthcoming Picard series while explicitly ruling out starring in Quentin Tarantino’s remake.

The actress, who played half-human half-Betazoid Deanna Troi in the franchise, is thrilled that Patrick Stewart is reprising his character Jean-Luc Picard after 18-years off our screens and can’t wait to see him back in action.

‘I’m excited,’ Marina enthused to Digital Spy. ‘I’m excited to see Patrick as Picard again because I think he was bloody brilliant in that character.’

Revealing that she’d jump at the opportunity to rejoin Starfleet, she added: ‘If they ask me, I would love to be in it. But I have to be honest, the phone hasn’t rung yet, so I’m not holding my breath.

‘But I’d love to do it – as long as I don’t have to wear that spacesuit again, because I’ve put on a bit of weight since then, and I don’t fancy going to the fat farm to lose it all again!’

Earlier this month, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood director Quentin revealed he’s keen to get his hands on a Star Trek script and make a profanity-laden film.

‘There’s a script that exists for it now,’ he admitted to Empire at the time. ‘I need to weigh in on it, but I haven’t been able to do that yet.’

Marina has zero interest in putting her name forward for the movie if it happens though.

‘No! I’m not a big fan, so I would not like that at all,’ she added to Digital Spy. I’m just going to leave it at that, and let you fill in the gaps.’

Star Trek: Picard is set to arrive on CBS All Access in the US in 2019 and Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
