Actress Susanna Thompson began her acting career in the early '90s, making small appearances in TV movies and on shows like Silk Stalkings. Already an accomplished stage actress, Thompson's main career was in the theater, and she often met with critical acclaim. Then, in 1999, she was cast in the role of the Borg Queen on the series Star Trek: Voyager, and she instantly became a member of a tremendously enthusiastic cult fan base. Soon afterward, Thompson found herself starring in her own series, Once and Again, and would wrack up starring roles in many more shows over the coming years, like Still Life, and The Book of Daniel.
