Actress Nicole Deboer raved with enthusiasm recently when she was asked about her role in the final season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. "I did feel good about it," deBoer told Steve Krutzler at TrekWeb. "You can always want to do more and I'm sure the writers did afterwards, that's just natural to feel that. But they sure crammed a whole lot of stuff in there for me for a year. I have fond memories of working on it, I loved working on it! I loved the character, I loved the cast, I miss working at Paramount studios!"

The actress commented that she would have liked Ezri to have found her place in the DS9 universe a lot quicker. "I do like to play strong characters and of course Ezri did have strength in her," she said. "She just was confused for the first half of it. So I would've really liked to have gotten it together later on and maybe not thought about boys so much. I would've liked to have continued on, to have her become more confident and get more together. It was ok playing it that [naïve] way but I liked how she got more confident near the end."

Three years on, deBoer couldn't be happier with her new series The Dead Zone, based on the Stephen King book. "It's like being with anybody who is really good at what they do, it's like being on a David Kelley show or something," she said of the series, developed by Trek veteran Michael Piller. "These people are experts, and we’re benefiting from that."
