While Acker described her history with acting, other celebrities discussed their unique affinity with their roles. Actress Mary Cheiffo discusses her personal history when she first began her craft, when describing how she was playing a woman Klingon, she mentioned, “I love working on the dialect and developing from the language based off the sounds that the Klingon language. I created a specific dialect based on the time that she is in. I really like to geek out about language . . .there is so many aspects of Klingons that are awesome. The way they carry themselves, the women, they’re so powerful and still dealing with a patriarchal society . . .”
Thus, Acker has her own unique take on being not only passionate about language, but also subverting patriarchy. Even actress Caity Lotz has her own background in martial arts and stunts.
“I trained a lot in martial arts and stunts before I started acting so I have a backlog of training and if I have a really big fight or wire work we usually rehearse it,” she stated. “A lot of times I’m learning it wile I’m on set and bustin it out.”
