When she was three years old, Sirtis says, the teenage sons of her babysitter sexually molested her. Sirtis suffered from an eating disorder which emerged due to the trauma of the assault. After suffering from the disorder for 20 years, she went into therapy in the 1990s and was able to manage the trauma and learn to eat healthily again.
While still in secondary school, Sirtis secretly auditioned for drama school against her parents' wishes, ultimately being accepted to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
In 1976, at the age of 21, Sirtis graduated from Guildhall and began her career by joining the Connaught Theatre.
In 1986, at the age of 31, Sirtis emigrated to the United States, settling in Los Angeles to boost her career. She later became a naturalized US citizen.

Before her role in Star Trek, Sirtis was featured in supporting roles in several films. In the 1983, Faye Dunaway film, The Wicked Lady, she engaged in a whip fight with Dunaway. In the Charles Bronson sequel Death Wish 3, Sirtis' character is a rape victim. In the film Blind Date, she appears as a prostitute who is murdered by a madman.
Michael Dorn was born (December 9th, 1952) in Luling, Texas, the son of Allie Lee and Fentress Dorn, Jr. He grew up in Pasadena, California and studied radio and television production at Pasadena City College. From there, he pursued a career in music as a performer with several different rock music bands, travelling to San Francisco and then back to Los Angeles.
Dorn first appeared in Rocky as Apollo Creed's bodyguard, though he was not credited. He also appeared as a guest on the television show W.E.B. in 1978. The producer was impressed with his work, so he introduced Dorn to an agent who then introduced him to acting teacher Charles E. Conrad to study acting for six months. He then landed a regular role on the television series Chips.
Dorn's most famous role to date is that of the Klingon Starfleet officer Lieutenant (later Lt. Commander) Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. From his first appearance in the series premiere episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Encounter at Farpoint, in 1987 to his last in Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002, Dorn has appeared more times as a regular cast member than any other Star Trek actor in the franchise's history, spanning five films and 272 television episodes. He also appeared as Worf's ancestor, Colonel Worf, in the 1991 film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
Following the end of his Star Trek career, Dorn had supporting roles in a number of independent feature films, including Shadow Hours (2000), Lessons for an Assassin (2001), and the Santa Clause trilogy, in which he appeared in a cameo role as the Sandman.
"If what happened to the first cast is called being typecast," Dorn says, "then I want to be typecast. Of course, they didn't get the jobs after 'Trek.' But they are making their sixth movie. Name me someone else on television who has made six movies!"

During the audition, he had only seven pages of a script on which to base his performance and was told only that the character originated from the southern United States.
