Marina Sirtis

Marina is definitely not the soft-spoken, demure Betazoid that we all saw on Next Generation, and she would be the first person to tell you that.  She told how the character of Deanna Troi was originally outlined to be the “brains” of the ship.  However, once they had her change costumes to the jumpsuit with cleavage, her brain “matter” dropped drastically.  Patrick Stewart (otherwise referred to as “Old Baldy and “His Majesty”) seemed to agree when after Counselor Troi said her famous line “Captain, I sense he is hiding something from us” he jokingly retorted  “We know that you stupid cow!”  At that time in Hollywood, it seems if you had cleavage, you couldn’t have a brain.  In the latter seasons when they put her back in uniform (with pips, mind you), amazingly, the brain came back with it!  Not that it helped her driving skills, as she is the one that crashed the Enterprise twice…
