“There are three things to remember about being a starship captain: Keep your shirt tucked in, go down with the ship, and never abandon a member of your crew.”
Kate Mulgrew, <i>Captain Kathryn Janeway</i> from “Star Trek: Voyager,” Joins the Wizard World Comic Con Tour!Kate Mulgrew has had a distinguished career in theatre, television, and film. She is equally adept at comedy and drama, as proven by the many and varied characters she has played. A few of her notable theatrical roles include Emily in Our Town, Tracy Lord in The Philadelphia Story, Hedda Gabler, and her award winning turn as Katharine Hepburn in Tea at Five. In 2008 she was honored with Off-Broadway’s Obie Award for her portrayal of Clytemnestra in Iphigenia 2.0. Mulgrew recently fulfilled a life-long dream when she played Cleopatra in a successful and well received production of Shakespeare’s classic play at Hartford Stage.

Some noteworthy television roles include Mary Ryan (Ryan’s Hope), Mrs. Columbo, and Dr. Joanne Springsteen (Heartbeat). And in 1995 Mulgrew created the iconic role of Captain Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager, becoming the first female captain of a Star Trek series. Among her films are the classic comedy Throw Momma from the Train, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, and most recently the award-winning docudrama The Response.

Kate Mulgrew’s involvement with Alzheimer’s began when her mother, Joan, was diagnosed with the disease. Joan succumbed in 2006, but Mulgew’s dedication to the cause has remained steadfast. She has raised millions of dollars for research, and continues to speak passionately and forcefully about the effects of the disease on families, the need for funding, and the ongoing search for a cure, all over the world.

She recently explained her commitment: “It’s grown and blossomed into something that feels right. I’ve had a really good life and a wonderful career. I’ve been comfortable and I’ve been healthy. And I adored my mother. So this is my way to give back.”
