Interview with Tim Russ (Star Trek Voyager , Renegades, 5th Passenger....)

Timothy Darrell "Tim" Russ (born June 22, 1956)[1] is an American actor, film director, screenwriter, and musician. He is known for his roles as Lieutenant Commander Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager, as Frank on Samantha Who?, and as Principal Franklin, a recurring character on the Nickelodeon live-action teen sitcom iCarly.




- 16 Years after Star Trek Voyager ends, what did you miss?

Tim: Obviously I miss the steady work, and I very much missed the people I worked with.  

- Tim you still work together with other former Star Trek Actors like Marina Sirtis , Armin Shimerman and Manu Intiraymi in "5th Passenger" How was it work again with "old" friends?

Tim: It's always cool to work with former cast mates, and they are all just as skilled and easy to work with as before. 


























- Star Trek starts these days with an New Series , "Star Trek Discovery". Did you watch the show?

Tim:  Nope.  I don't plan to subscribe to it. 

- In Star Trek nothing is impossible, Timelines or wormhole. Will you work for Discovery as Tuvok or an New character when they ask?

Tim: It all depends on the producers of the show.  I'm sure they are barraged with questions about seeing the already established Trek characters.  Who knows what they will do. 

- And projects, what are you working on now after Star Trek Renegades and 5th Passenger?

Tim: I just finished guest star appearances on a few TV shows, and I'm now developing and planning to direct 2 to 3 feature film projects, as well as a possible series on the streaming site, Funny or Die.
