She was a good looking bird in her prime.

Always had a thing for her in that role.

My favorite appearance of hers is in the Twilight Zone episode "The Passersby." Great performance in a great episode.

Her daughter, Amy Rydell, is a dead ringer for her mother. She recreated the role her mom played for the fan series Star Trek Continues.

We celebrate "that guy" people, why not a "that woman"?

Linville was married to On Golden Pond director Mark Rydell from 1962-73 and was the great-grandmother of actress Billie Lourd

That's some interesting trivia.  I guess the good-looking genes got passed down.

When I saw Amy as her mother's character on STC, my jaw virtually hit the floor. She nailed the role succintly.

She did a really good job as the Romulan commander and set the tone for all future Romulans in the series and spin offs.

Another Government Employee: We celebrate "that guy" people, why not a "that woman"?


Well, women use "Hey guys" to talk to other women, so maybe soon "guy" will become a non-gendered singlular pronoun.
