Ryan on Seven’s ‘badass’ return and how ‘Picard’ is different than ‘Voyager’
On the official Star Trek: Picard Podcast the actress started off talking broadly about her return to the role of Seven of Nine:
This character was never one I thought about revisiting. I thought I was completely done, that was it. So, just the idea of what they were going to do with this character was interesting and exciting to me, and a big enough miracle. The fact that they lived up to all the promises is almost unheard of and amazing to me as an actor. She has been so much fun to revisit and so much fun to play. She has been through hell – I love how resilient she is. I love that storyline.
