Suzie Plakson

Incredibly Versatile Actor and Singer

Suzie Plakson (born June 3, 1958) is an American actress, singer, writer and artist. Born in Buffalo, New York, she grew up in Kingston, Pennsylvania and went to college at Northwestern University. She began her career on the stage/theater, and played four characters opposite Anthony Newley in a revival tour of “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off”. She also played “Marquise Theresa Du Parc” in the Broadway incarnation of the play “La Bête”.

Plakson has played a wide range of characters throughout her career. Her regular role in a television series was playing hard-bitten sportswriter “Meg Tynan” in the sitcom Love & War (1992); she did several voices on Dinosaurs (1991) and ultimately played four characters on various “Star Trek” series. There were other guest spots and recurring roles in sitcoms such as Mad About You (1992) and Everybody Loves Raymond (1996), while she was also acting in movies such as Disclosure (1994), Red Eye (2005) and Wag the Dog (1997). She wrote and performed an allegorical solo show, “An Evening with Eve”.

As a singer/songwriter, Plakson just recently released the alternative country rock album “DidnWannaDoIt!” produced by Jay Ferguson. She also sculpts and writes — samples of both are viewable and readable on her website.

Suzie is the only actress to appear as 4 different aliens in 3 different “Star Trek” series: Vulcan Lieutenant Selar and Klingon K’Ehleyr on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), the female Q on Star Trek: Voyager (1995) and Tarah, the first female Andorian on Star Trek: Enterprise (2001).

Her big break came when Anthony Newley cast her opposite himself in the 1987 revival of “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off”.

We are excited Suzie will be attending all three days of StarFest.
