Here’s a little-known fact about Cindybin: I am a movie star! Yes, it’s true. I acted in a Star Trek movie with Kirk, Spock, Scotty and all the gang, on the Starship Enterprise! In fact, my whole family was in it! Twenty years ago when I was 35, back in 1992 at Universal Studios in Florida.
If you don’t believe me, here are some pictures from the movie. One of them shows us all being beamed up and meeting Scotty aboard the space ship. I remember that well—it was so fun! Kind of a tingly feeling. My husband is the tall guy—he played a Vulcan. He had pointy ears and everything! My older son was the Captain, and my younger son and I were “graduates.”
Here’s another still of me and my bad perm where I was speaking one of my lines. I really put my all into it—had to prepare for weeks! It was very grueling but worth it. I almost got nominated for an Academy Award!
Due to objections from family members (including myself), I am not able to show you the actual movie, but here is a link to some other family that was in the same movie. It stars Heidi, Sue, Brenda and Shelly. Looks like they had a great time, too!
Yes, it was enormous fun working with the gang from Star Trek—especially William Shatner and Leonard Nemoy—or should I say Bill and Lenny. It was an experience we will never forget, and we are all still great friends to this day.
