Jeri Ryan Joins Syfy’s Disease Outbreak Drama Helix
Boom Tron - over 3 years
Jeri Ryan has joined Syfy’s upcoming drama, Helix, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Not only does she have serious geek cred – she played Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager – but she’s a veteran with several series regular roles under her belt, the latest of which was ABC’s Body of Proof. She’ll be bringing all that experience to Helix as she joins already cast stars Billy Campbell and Hiroyuki Sanada. According to LA Times, Ryan will star as Constance Sutton, the owner of Arctic Biosystems. Helix follows a group of scientists investigating a mysterious disease outbreak from the safety of an arctic research facility, the previously mentioned Arctic Biosystems. Campbell will play Dr. Alan Farragut, the head of the team, and Sanada is Dr. Hiroshi Hatake, the director of the facility. Not only do the scientists have to contend with the ever-evolving disease, but there are plenty of personal troubles surrounding these characters. From what I’ve heard so far, Helix has the potential t ...

Jeri Ryan: Healthy Snacks For Kids
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Okay... right out of the gate, I feel that I should tell you that I am not a "health food" kind of girl. If you read my first blog post about the Meyer Lemon Shaker Pie, you've probably already surmised that. But what you may not have fully understood is just how seriously, deeply, vehemently NOT into the idea of food eaten solely for its health benefits -- flavor (i.e. pleasure) be damned - I really am. I am, after all, married to a French chef. A French French chef. Food, for our family, is so much more than just fuel, and sharing food together is something we don't take lightly. Part of what we love about it is not only the time we all spend talking and laughing together around the table, but also the knowledge that the food we've cooked is giving genuine pleasure to the people we love most in the world. I think that little disclaimer is necessary before I get to the recipes I'm sharing today in this post. It would be awfully easy to jump to the conclusion that they ...

It’s a tough time to be a science fiction hero. Just look at the headlines for proof! First, there’s this: Honestly, that’s not surprising. He does seem to get into trouble wherever he goes. So misunderstood. But it would’ve been interesting to know where the TARDIS materialized in that situation. This next one though is clearly her own fault: Not that I blame her. I’ve spent many an hour alone in an observatory, and I imagine the Astrometrics Lab on Voyager wasn’t that much more entertaining. Hey Janeway, maybe this wouldn’t have happened if you had let her use the Holodeck more! Tip o’ the sonic screwdriver to my sister Marci, and to Jeri Ryan on G+ who linked to Kevin Hanning’s post. And yes, those are real headlines.

Caryn Brooks: Live and Let Dye: When Will TV's Women Show Their True Colors?
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
NBC news anchor Matt Lauer will do something most women on television try desperately not to do. He will age before our eyes. Of course there are women of a certain age in strong powerful roles on television -- Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and Katie Couric to name a few. But none has gone there without fighting to stay younger looking. Lauer, who just announced a new multi-year, multimillion-dollar deal with NBC's Today, seemed nonchalant about aging on the small screen. The 54 year-old news anchor even poked fun at his longevity on the show when he talked about the new contract. "Truth be told I was developing an idea for a new show, where viewers could tune in every morning and see someone they know lose a little more of his hair every single day right in front of their eyes. But then I thought, I could just stay here and do that," Lauer joked. Women on television don't get to show their age, they are expected to conceal, cover and conquer it. Paula Dean is ...

    FORTIES
  • 2011
    Age 43
    Ryan made a return guest appearance on the TNT drama Leverage in season 4, episode 13 as the grifter Tara Cole, in the episode entitled "The Girls' Night Out Job", which aired December 11, 2011. In 1990, while dealing blackjack at a charity event, the actress met investment banker and future Republican political candidate Jack Ryan. The couple married on June 15, 1991, and had a son, Alex, on August 15, 1994. Throughout the marriage, they took turns commuting between Los Angeles and Chicago for their careers, but divorced on August 27, 1999.
    More Details Hide Details Although Ryan mentioned in an interview for Star Trek that the frequent separations had been difficult for the marriage, the reasons for the divorce were kept sealed at their mutual request. A few years after she joined the Voyager cast, Ryan began dating Star Trek: Voyager producer Brannon Braga. Between February and November 2000, they were stalked by Marlon Estacio Pagtakhan, who was convicted for harassment and threats in May 2001. When Jack Ryan's campaign for an open United States Senate seat in Illinois began in 2003, the Chicago Tribune newspaper and WLS-TV, the local ABC affiliate, sought to have his records released. Both Jeri and Jack agreed to make their divorce, but not custody, records public, saying their release could be harmful to their son. On June 18, 2004, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider agreed to release the custody files. The decision generated much controversy because it went against both parents' direct request and reversed the decision to seal the papers in the best interest of the child. It was revealed that six years earlier, Jeri had accused Jack Ryan of asking her to perform sexual acts with him in public, and in sex clubs in New York, New Orleans, and Paris. Jeri described one as "a bizarre club with cages, whips, and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling." Jack denied these allegations. Although Jeri only made a brief statement, and she refused to comment on the matter during the campaign, the document disclosure led Jack to withdraw his candidacy; his main opponent, Barack Obama, then won the 2004 United States Senate election in Illinois.
    Ryan has also continued to appear in guest roles on genre television series, most recently on the syfy series Warehouse 13 as United States Marine Major Amanda Lattimer, ex-wife of the series' male lead character Pete Lattimer, in the episode "Queen for a Day", aired August 1, 2011.
