March, Barbara

Strong female Klingon characters are about as ubiquitous as it gets in Star Trek, and Barbara March’s indelible performance as Lursa, paired with fellow Duras sister B’Etor, were among the best. March first debuted the character with her “sister” and fellow Canadian in TNG’s "Redemption" two-parter, then turned up in TNG’s “Firstborn” and then DS9’s “Past Prologue” before being killed off in the movie Generations. Like both Walsh and her husband Alan Scarfe, March is classically trained, having starred at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis as well as Canada’s Stratford Shakespeare Festival, with further credits in New York and Los Angeles. In addition, she has also written the playThe Razing of Emily Bronte, and her novel The Copper People is now out.
