Life and career

Film and television work

Although her first appearance as Vulcan Lieutenant Saavik in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock was promoted as being her film debut, in fact Curtis had already made several film and made-for-television movie appearances. Her performance in the film drew mixed reception from Trek fans, and was followed by a brief appearance as Saavik in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.[1][2][3]

She co-starred in the 1983 episode "Short Notice" during the first season of the Knight Rider television series. In 1991, she portrayed Carol Pulaski on the soap opera General Hospital. In 1993, Curtis portrayed an unrelated Vulcan character disguised as a Romulan (Tallera/T'Paal) in the two-part episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation "Gambit," for which she was screen-tested instead of being given any special consideration. In the Babylon 5 episode "Deathwalker" (1994), she appeared as Abbai Ambassador Kalika.

She also appeared in the television series Dream On, Herman's Head, Night Court, MacGyver, Johnny Bago, and The Equalizer.

Curtis's other film work includes Hexed, Ghost Story, Shootdown, In Love with an Older Woman, A White Thread, A Black Thread, and LBJ - The Early Years in which she played the role of Jacqueline Kennedy.

Stage and commercial work

Curtis has numerous stage credits in regional and national theatre, including Gyspy, Applause, Oliver!, ...And Other Songs in New York City. She performed in The City Suite Off Broadway and in Garden in Los Angeles. Other work includes The Nerd, The Man of La Mancha, and George Bernard Shaw's The Apple Tree.

Post-acting career

While she hit the convention circuit hard in the mid-1990s, as of early March 2014 she was only making semi-frequent appearances at Star Trek conventions throughout the world.

In 2004, Curtis found success as a residential real estate agent in Manlius, New York, in addition to her acting career. In the middle of the following year, 2005, she debuted her one-woman show, a work-in-progress, Not My Bra, You Don't! - The Sexual Odyssey of a Forty-Nine Year Old Woman."

Personal life

Curtis was briefly married to the actor Kent Williams.
