Beverly Crusher actress Gates McFadden might be teasing a future appearance on Star Trek: Picard. McFadden played Beverly, the Enterprise’s chief medical officer for nearly every season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
She was briefly absent for season 2, but then returned for the rest of the series. McFadden also appeared in four Star Trek feature films, with her last appearance being in 2002’s Star Trek Nemesis.
As The Next Generation‘s medical chief, Beverly often played a key role in episodes. She also became Jean-Luc Picard’s (Patrick Stewart) love interest later on in the series, with the finale even showing a possible future where they got married (and divorced).
Beverly Crusher Return?
Season 2 of Picard is still in the early stages, but fans are already curious about which past characters could appear. Nothing has been announced yet, but McFadden recently seemed to hint there might be a role for Beverly in the future.
While talking to TrekMovie, McFadden was asked if she had been tapped for a guest appearance on Picard.
“Well, I don’t know,” McFadden said. “There’s a good chance, let’s put it that way. But I have no contract signed.” She also briefly commented on what Beverly and Jean-Luc’s relationship might be like if she did appear on Picard, saying this:
i“I think that Patrick made a decision at some point that he was opening it up to other relationships in our show, and in the movies, certainly.
So I can’t imagine that it’s suddenly going to be different, but it doesn’t mean that there’s not a relationship there. Obviously, from our all of our scenes, there is a relationship and that’s great. So who knows? I have no clue, but it would it would be lovely”.
After reading it, what do you think guys? Do you wanted for Beverly to return?
