(written from a Production point of view)
Rosalyn Landor (born 7 October 1958; age 56) from Hampstead, London, portrayed Brenna Odell in the Star Trek: The Next Generation second season episode "Up The Long Ladder". Footage from this episode was later reused in the episode "Shades of Gray".
Landor was sought after as a child actress. During her teens, she attended the Royal Ballet School for two years before completing her education at Tolworth Girls School, near Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, where she studied to A-level. After leaving school at the age of nineteen, Landor entered the retail trade, working first at Royal Copenhagen Porcelain in Bond Street, London, then at Liberty's of Regent Street. She made her West End stage debut in 1987.
Her notable roles include Helen Stoner, Sherlock Holmes' client and the stepdaughter of the British doctor played by Jeremy Kemp in the television adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of the Speckled Band and Fiona Allways, an ingenuous young defense lawyer on Rumpole of the Bailey.
Landor moved to the United States in the late 1980's. She currently lives in Los Angeles, where she pursues a successful career as a narrator of audio books.
