In the course of the interview, Dawson declared herself to be a Trekkie (I thought the term was now “Trekker” but maybe I’m just being a nerd) and said that she wanted to be in the upcoming Star Trek sequel.
She said she is discreetly petitioning JJ Abrams and would be happy to play a Klingon or anything else that is going. She even threw in a Klingon phrase, which shows a certain level of commitment.
Interestingly, other Hollywood stars with closet Trek-love have managed to squeeze themselves into the films before. Christian Slater popped up in Star Trek VI and director Bryan Singer had a brief cameo in Star Trek: Nemesis, so maybe Dawson will be able to shoe-horn herself in.
You can catch the rest of the video below, including an interesting tale of Christopher Walken’s red-carpet wardrobe.
