Actress Sonita Henry delivers in Star Trek
Actress Sonita Henry has an early encounter with James T. Kirk in the upcoming “Star Trek” movie, directed by J.J. Abrams. How early? She portrays the doctor who delivers baby Kirk in an action-packed scene.
“It’s a very dramatic scene,” Henry said in a recent interview with The Oklahoman. “Things are blowing up, and there’s a woman in labor … in the middle of a war zone, I guess.”
She said the gravity of being cast for “Star Trek” didn’t sink in immediately.
“As an actor, you’re like, ‘Great! Another job,’” she said. “And then it slowly begins to sink in that this isn’t just another job, this is ‘Star Trek.’ This is huge. This has millions and millions of fans around the world.”
She began filming on “Star Trek” in November 2007.
“We were shooting in the Long Beach power station,” Henry said. “We had loads of extras running around. We had explosions.”
Henry’s character and the doctor’s aide, are pushing the pregnant Winona Kirk (Jennifer Morrison, “House”) along in a wheelchair through the extras and the explosions.
