Five Favorite Films with Jeri Ryan
The dreamy Borg turned Leverage star shares her picks
There's a good chance you're already familiar with Jeri Ryan, even if her name isn't immediately familiar. Fans of the Fox television show Boston Public knew her as attorney-turned-high school teacher Ronnie Cooke, and Ryan maintained recurring roles on other popular shows such as The O.C. and Boston Legal. But she is perhaps best known for her work as the Borg "Seven of Nine" on Star Trek: Voyager. In fact, Ryan's role in the sci-fi series propelled her to the height of geek fandom, as the former Miss Illinois' smoldering screen presence succeeded in melting the hearts of many a Voyager fan.
Earlier this year, Ryan began a stint on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as defense attorney Patrice La Rue, and beginning tomorrow, she will appear in an extended guest starring role on the TNT show Leverage. Lucky for us, she took some time out of her busy schedule to speak with RT about her Five Favorite Films, working in TV vs. working in film, and how she feels about escargot. Read on for the full interview!
