Mary Kay Adams: (about her "Star Trek: DS9" character) So many times in Hollywood, or in show business in general, women are not really allowed to be strong. We are tempered. Our power is taken away. Playing the Klingon woman was such a joy because throughout my entire career I have had directors say to me, 'OK, Mary Kay, just pull back a little bit.' This was the first time I was ever told, 'OK, we need you to be stronger!' It was Christmas!
