Marina Sirtis gained worldwide acclaim as the sexy and cerebral “Deanna Troi” in the successful “Star Trek: The Next Generation” TV series and four Paramount feature films.
Marina’s dramatic range has also earned her opportunities on stage, television, and feature films far beyond the “Star Trek” franchise. Films include the Oscar®-winning Best Picture “Crash” for which she received a SAG Award® (Ensemble). On television, Marina starred as Queen Wealhteow in Syfy Channel’s movie “Grendel” as well as recurred as Orli Elbaz on “NCIS.” Additional TV credits include: “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Without a Trace,” “Girlfriends,” and “The Closer.”
Born in London, Marina secretly applied to the prestigious Guild Hall School of Music and Drama because her parents initially didn’t want her to become an actress. After graduating, Marina earned her acting chops on British TV before moving to Los Angeles.
Marina stars as ‘Penelope’ in the Hallmark Original Movie “My Summer Prince” which premieres Saturday, August 6th.
