Star Trek officially opens tonight and Mother’s Day is Sunday. How appropriate, then, that we introduce you to Jennifer Morrison, who plays Winona Kirk, the mother of Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, in JJ Abrams’ film. There are several different backstories associated with the character, but no matter what reality you buy into as a Trekker, you can’t deny Jennifer’s practically playing the mother of god.
Where you’ve seen her before: She’s probably most familiar as Dr. Allison from Fox’s "House" series, but she’s also played Jamie in Grind, Amy in Urban Legends: Final Cut, and Chris in a small 2004 film called Mall Cop, whose makers probably hate their lives right now.
Random Quote: "My resume for Cameron has me graduating medical school the year I graduated junior high.”
