[ # ] Watch Mary Chieffo transform into a Klingon
June 21st, 2019 under CBS All Access, Star Trek


Mary Chieffo plays Chancellor L’Rell, Mother of Klingons on Star Trek Discovery and that means she has to wear a lot of makeup and prosthetics in order to play the part.

CBS TV Studios shared a video of her getting into character. Unlike other actors, it is not as easy as just putting on an accent. It is hours of sitting in a makeup chair as they make her up piece by piece. You have to admire how cool she is throughout the long process. I cannot even sit still to write this up and she is like whatevs.

Which is why CBS All Access is asking for her and the makeup department to be considered for an Emmy. The voters should consider that there is much more to acting than acting out the lines. I doubt someone like Constance Wu would be willing to go through all of that for a role. Now I am not saying that acting out lines is easy and should be nullified, but some actors have to do a lot more before they go in front of the camera and should be recognized for that too. Mandy Moore does more to play Rebecca Pearson than some of the actresses on Big Little Lies.

I also think it is really interesting to watch these transformation videos. I enjoy watching a human turn into something else. How would you say that in Klingon?
