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 OscarÒ-winning Best Picture CRASH for which she received a SAG AwardÒ (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.
