Bibi Besch

Movies: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Character(s): Carol Marcus

Actress Bibi Besch is best known to Star Trek fans for playing the role of Doctor Carol Marcus in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Initially, Besch found the exclusion of Carol Marcus from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock very difficult to accept. Being so upset that she cried, Besch at first suspected the omission was actually a rejection of her acting talent, carried out because she had done something wrong. After the film was released, however, she sent a letter of acknowledgment to Executive Producer Harve Bennett, who later recalled of the message, “It said, ‘I’ve seen the picture. Now I understand. You were right. I hope you can find a place for me in one of the other films.'”
