During the interview, Celia also opened up about the reaction she received from fans about her portrayal.
She disclosed: “There’s been such an outpour of love, I am overwhelmed with like the tsunami of positivity that I’ve been faced with.
“This character is so iconic and legendary, even beyond Star Trek the franchise, and so I think people were just really excited to get to know her.”
Celia continued: “Because of the political climate of the 60s we didn’t really have an opportunity to really get to know her in the way we could in 2022.”
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is available on Paramount Plus.
