Arlene Martel, who portrayed one of the most important guest characters featured in an episode of Star Trek: The Original Series, passed away on August 12 after a heart attack. She played T’Pring, Spock’s betrothed, in the fan-favorite “Amok Time.”
"My performance, I think, holds up quite well, especially visually," she continued. "I didn’t have that much to say, but I think you see me and my reactions, and my presence is felt. Looking at it, I can see why they cast me in that role," Martel said to StarTrek.com in 2010.
In addition to Star Trek, she also appeared on The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, Knot’s Landing, Battlestar Galactica and even in the fan film Star Trek: Of Gods and Men.
Ms. Martel was either 78 or 80, depending on the source.
