Jeri Ryan, who rose to fame on Star Trek Voyager as 7 of 9 and has been the geek goddess of all things sexy since, is coming to Arrow in an episode called “The Candidate.” She will be playing Jessica Danforth a “friend of the Queen family” with political ambitions that will place her in the crosshairs of a one of the villains. Not only has Jeri Ryan appeared on some of televises most notable shows, but she takes her time as 7 of 9 with such a positive attitude considering the amount of stalkers and the chances of being type-cast it got her. However, unlike too many Star Trek alum, Jeri doesn’t bitch a moan about her experience and considering the skin tight suits she had to wear you have to be at least amazed by that.
Let’s hope she takes on more of a reoccurring role on Arrow. Having Jeri Ryan who is an amazing actress as well and a beautiful woman on the cast can only make a pretty great show that much better.
