To The Journey 69: Lindsay Crouse is a Saint! / by Charlynn Schmiedt

Casting Could-Have-Beens.

Finding the perfect actress to play the role of Janeway was a long and difficult process—especially after the first pick, Genevieve Bujold, quit after two days of shooting. In this episode of To The Journey, Char and Tristan talk about several people who auditioned for Janeway, as well as others who auditioned for main roles. Could you imagine the series being helmed by Lindsay Crouse, Patty Duke, or Joanna Cassidy? What about Claudia Christian as Seven of Nine? Listen on as Tristan and Char imagine the possibilities.
