Grace Lee Whitney dies

Yeoman Janice Rand is no more. Grace Lee Whitney played the personal assistant of James T. Kirk (William Shatner) in the original Star Trek series. Grace played the same Yeoman Rand in the spin-off Star Trek Voyager.

Grace Lee Whitney started her career in 1947 and she played in dozens of movies and series, among others: Gunsmoke, Surfside 6, 77 Sunset Strip, Batman (1967), Death Valley Days and Star Trek: New Voyages, her last role in a television series in 2011.

Whitney wrote in her book from 1998, The Longest Trek: My Tour of the Galaxy, that she was sexually abused by an executive at Desilu, the production company behind Star Trek, and suffered for years from alcohol and drug addiction before she got her life back on track.

Grace Lee Whitney was 85 years old.
