I cannot begin to describe how happy I was to book this role. I play Science Officer Lieutenant Dorsett aboard the U.S.S. Orville; Seth MacFarlane’s love letter to Star Trek. As a total nerd myself, all I’ve ever wanted was to be able to work on a sci fi show, to be able to connect with fans over a shared love of outer space. Not gonna lie, during the table read when ‘cloaking devices’ were mentioned, I might’ve teared up a little.
I have a really fun scene with Scott Grimes’s character Lt. Gordon Malloy in the mess hall, surrounded by aliens and humans alike. Hey, they haven’t killed me off on an away team mission, that means I might come back, right? ;)

Keep on living the dream!
