Joanne Linville appeared on Broadway and has had over 80 appearances in film and television, including the Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Bonanza, Gunsmoke and Columbo, but is best remembered as Mr.. Spock's love interest, the Romulan Commander on the original Star Trek series.


Joanne Linville was on hand during her daughter's performance. On the "Star Trek" episode, "The Enterprise Incident", Joanne Linville played the Romulan Commander. On the web series, Star Trek Continues (which I HIGHLY recommend), Joanne Linville's daughter Amy Rydell stepped into her mother's shoes (and to play the role. The resemblance is uncanny.
