Kate Mulgrew Will Tell Life Story In Memoir

Actress has come a long way since ‘Star Trek: Voyager’

As if Kate Mulgrew didn’t have enough to do, with her acting life and all, the actress now wants to try something different.

She wants to write a book. And since they always say, write what you know, the former star of “Star Trek: Voyager” is doing just that, by writing about herself.

Mulgrew will write a memoir through Little, Brown and Co. She’ll go deep into her personal life, including her time as an unmarried mother who gave up her daughter for adoption when she was just starting out in her acting career. Mulgrew and her daughter would actually reunite in 2001.

The book is set to come out in May 2015, after Mulgrew turns 60.

Mulgrew got an early start in acting, taking on the soap opera “Ryan’s Hope” when she was just 20.

Her career would go full steam after that, filled with successes (“Voyager”) and some duds (“Mrs. Columbo”).

Although the show wasn’t successful, Mulgrew did get some attention for playing Mrs. Columbo, earning a Golden Globe nomination in 1980.

She took on “Voyager” in 1995 as a last-minute replacement for Genevieve Bujold, who had originally been cast as Capt. Janeway, but left two days into shooting the pilot.

Mulgrew can now be found on the stage and in the critically acclaimed Netflix series “Orange is the New Black.”
