Penny Johnson Jerald

Penny Johnson Jerald is currently starring on The Orville as Dr. Claire Finn. But unlike Star Trek’s Dr. McCoy, she can’t claim she hasn’t worn a lot of different hats. She has appeared on numerous TV shows including 24, The Larry Sanders Show, and Castle, but Star Trek fans will remember her as playing Kasidy Yates Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Penny has graciously stepped in to cover for her castmate Scott Grimes, who unfortunately has to work this weekend on their show The Orville.
