Kirshner To Play Spock’s Mom On “Discovery”

Canadian actress Mia Kirshner (“24,” “The L Word”) has scored the role of Amanda Grayson, Sarek’s human wife, in the first season of CBS All Access’ “Star Trek: Discovery”.

Executive producers and showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg revealed the news to TrekMovie at the Hollywood blue carpet premiere earlier this week, Kirshner following in the footsteps of Jane Wyatt and Winona Ryder who previously played the role.

Herberts also talked about canon, saying the events we see will all fit into the prime timeline:

“In terms of canon, we want to make sure that all of that stuff tracks. So whatever you pull up in Picard’s computer needs to be correct by the time we end our run… so far we know we have never heard about her. We have never heard Spock and Sarek speak about her. So it is our job to make sure that what we have seen, still holds water.”

They also confirm that in regards to a second season, nothing is official as yet.
