  • Career Resurrection: Her first high-profile project was the starring role in Mrs. Columbo, one of the most notorious TV bombs of its era. She struggled a bit after that, but Star Trek: Voyager quickly restored her reputation.
  • The Danza: Captain Janeway, who'd initially been envisioned with the first name 'Elizabeth', then 'Nicole' at initially cast Geneviève Bujold's request was rechristened 'Kathryn', a variation on Mulgrew's given name 'Katherine' at her suggestion.
