Marina Sirtis Says Paramount Threatened To Replace Her With Jeri Ryan For ‘Star Trek: Nemesis’

http://trekmovie.com/2017/08/05/stlv17- ... k-nemesis/

The actress then recalled a story she says she has never spoken about before:

When I was negotiating for [Star Trek:] Nemesis they literally threatened to fire me and recast Troi, well not actually recast, but they said “We are going to fire you and hire Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine from Star Trek Voyager).” And I said “Well Jeri Ryan won’t do it for that money, that is for sure.”


Nemesis offer previously confirmed by Ryan in 2014
The call [from Paramount] came and they said “Put Jeri Ryan in the movie,” and I’m like “Okay… in what way are you going to put Jeri Ryan in this movie?” “Well, we’re going to replace one of the characters with Seven”…which makes absolutely no sense.

Seven as as ship's counsellor. I can just see it now.

"I'm feeling kind of depressed, I have so much responsibility in my job, and I'm stressed over the possibility failure."
"Depression is irrelevant. Responsibility is irrelevant. Failure is irrelevant."
"That's not very helpful..."
"Helpfulness is irrelevant. You may return to work."

That would be hilarious. I almost want to actually see it.
