If there’s ever a movie version of Strange New Worlds (as we’ve heard from our sources) and they want to recast T’Pring with a bigger name (though they really shouldn’t, Gia Sandhu is perfect in the role), then Kate Beckinsale might fit the bill.

While there have been no official announcements or rumors regarding Beckinsale’s potential involvement in Star Trek, her appreciation for science fiction and the genre’s themes has been noted in interviews. The world of Star Trek, with its exploration of diverse cultures and complex characters, aligns well with Beckinsale’s interest in thought-provoking storytelling.

Why not play a Vulcan next, Kate?
