Louise Sorel’s Star Trek Memories

1 min read

Like many guest stars on Star Trek, Louise Sorel (Requiem for Methuselah‘s Rayna) had no idea that Star Trek would be popular fifty years later.

For Sorel, the show was just one of many on which she worked on beginning in the 1960s.

“I didn’t watch a lot of television back in the 60s so knew little about shows such as Star Trek,” said Sorel. “Although I wanted more movie work, my agent kept calling with offers for TV roles so I did a lot in the 60s, 70s, and beyond.”

Sorel found working with William Shatner to be a positive experience. “I’d played his wife earlier on an episode of Route 66 and he was just so much fun to be around,” she said. “I’m a dog fanatic, and Bill would sometimes bring his Doberman to work so I would often visit with them both on the set.

How does Sorel feel about being remembered for a show that began airing fifty years ago? “None of us thought the show would become so popular as it did during the later reruns,” she said.
