(written from a Production point of view)
Taliaferro was an exotic and sought-after model in the 1960s, who used her success in modelling to get a role on Star Trek, which she was a huge fan of. 
She appeared in the 1970 film The Red, White and Black, featuring TOS stuntman Bobby Clark. She also appeared in the Elvis Presley feature Stay Away, Joe and in an uncredited role in the Fred Astaire film, Finian's Rainbow (in which Vince Howard also had an uncredited role), both in 1968. These are her only known motion picture credits.
