Bebe Neuwirth

Series: TNG

Character(s): Lanel

Beatrice “Bebe” Neuwirth is the actress who played the role of Nurse Lanel in the Star Trek: The Next Generation fourth season episode “First Contact”.

Neuwirth was interviewed by Ian Spelling for the article “Bebe Neuwirth’s First Contact”, published in The Official Star Trek: The Next Generation Magazine issue 20, p. 6. On how she was cast, Neuwirth explains, “I guess they got wind of the fact that I’m a Trekkie and that I would love to do their show. Something came up that they felt I could do it. They sent it over and I jumped at it. It was basically one scene, and I had a ball doing it.”

Three of her Cheers co-stars have also had Trek roles. Kelsey Grammer who played her husband, Dr. Frasier Crane, also starred on Star Trek: The Next Generation in “Cause and Effect”, Kirstie Alley appeared in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and Paul Willson was in the Star Trek: Voyager episode “The Void”.
