Next Star Trek Casts A Wife For Noel Clarke

By Josh Tyler | 9 years ago

It’s been a big week for casting in Star Trek: The Next. Bennedict Cumberbatch was hired as the movie’s unnamed villain and Noel Clarke was brought in to play a character described only as a “married man”. And now he has a wife.

EW says Nazneen Contractor has been cast top lay the wife of Noel Clarke’s unspecified character (we theorize that he could be playing Richard Daystrom). Nazeen, who was born in Mumbai India, was last seen on the rapidly cancelled Paul Reiser show. She’s probably best known for a recurring role on 24 as Kayla Hassan, or for being one of those Indian women who’s hotter than the sun.
