  • Jolene Blalock ( T'Pol)

       (0 reviews)

    Jolene Blalock was (born March 5th, 1975) and raised in San Diego, California, with three siblings. She spent her childhood surfing and developing artistic skills. She said of her childhood:

    "I was such an awkward-looking child, I've no idea what happened. I didn't have a good childhood because I never could get along with other kids. I was the child that sat in the corner eating lunch by myself. I worked in the library at lunchtime because I had no real friends. I read a lot and educated myself a different way because me and school didn't get along. Even boys were never interested in me. I remember playing kiss-chase in the first and second grade. I would run but no one would ever chase me."

    Blalock left home at age seventeen to model in Europe and Asia. She has appeared on the cover of many men's lifestyle magazines, was twice featured in Maxim's "Girls of Maxim" gallery and was named the 10th sexiest woman in the world in 2003 by FHM. She posed for a clothed fashion layout in Playboy in April 2002. She was later interviewed by the magazine for its "20Q" section in February 2005.

    Blalock spent years dieting as a model and was relieved to move into acting, saying: "I'm jaded by my experiences in the modelling industry. You're never skinny or perfect enough and it was difficult mentally making the transition to acting."

    She made her television debut on the sitcom Veronica's Closet, before guest appearances on Love Boat: The Next Wave, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, JAG and starring as Medea in a television movie adaptation of Jason and the Argonauts (2000). She also appeared in the movie On the Edge (2001) and the miniseries The Diamond Hunters (2001) before being cast on Star Trek: Enterprise.

    Landing a role on Star Trek: Enterprise was Blalock's biggest break and she described it as a dream come true. She admitted she was excited at being a newcomer to the series saying:

    "We're fortunate. More than 100 people are working together on this every day and we haven't had one argument. It's incredible. I've had bad days in my personal life, but it's always a joy to go to work. There's also a sense of immortality that the show gives you, that you're working on something that will never die, that your contribution will last forever. That's a very special feeling."

    She has not participated in conventions or given interviews regarding her role on Star Trek: Enterprise except for FedCon XIV in May 2005 but did agree to join a 2013 cast reunion for an interview during the Blu-ray conversion and production. She also appeared as a parody version of herself attending a Star Trek convention in a 2009 episode of the sitcom 10 Items or Less titled "Star Trok".

    Blalock appeared in the film Slow Burn, which was shot in 2003 between seasons two and three of Enterprise, unveiled at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2005, and finally saw limited theatrical release in 2007.

    She guest-starred in two episodes of Stargate SG-1 as Ishta, leader of a group of female Jaffa.

    Blalock was scheduled to appear on an episode of Lost during the 2005–2006 season. Though she filmed some scenes, they were never used in an episode nor featured as "deleted scenes" in the DVD set's bonus material. Set photos from the shooting of a scene surfaced in 2008. She played Captain Lola Beck in Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, which was released direct-to-video on August 5, 2008. She went on to play Alexa, the wife of a hospitalised porn star, in the 2009 episode "Teamwork" on the series House. Later she played Sister Nicci, a Sister of the Dark, in the second season of Legend of the Seeker, appearing in the January 2009 episodes "Dark" and "Perdition". She also had a supporting role as Stacy in the action thriller Sinners and Saints (2010).

    She is currently married to Michael Rapino, CEO of Live Nation. The two met when he booked her for a beer commercial in Los Angeles. He lived in England and while working on Star Trek: Enterprise, she found conducting a long-distance relationship difficult, running up an astronomical phone bill. She proposed to him and the two married in Negril, Jamaica, on April 22, 2003. They have two children.

     

    Blalock is a passionate dog lover and has appeared on the cover of the popular British dog publication K9 Magazine.
