Arlene Martel - RIP 1936-2014

Arlene Martel is best known for her performance as T'Pring in the 1967 Star Trek episode "Amok Time" and as Consuelo Biros in the 1964 The Outer Limits episode "Demon with a Glass Hand".

She also made appearances as the French Underground agent Tiger in five episodes of Hogan's Heroes.

Martel's acting career largely ended in the early 1970s after just a few short years, as she retired from the profession to raise her three children -- Adam, Avra, and Jod -- from her second marriage (to soap opera actor Jerry Douglas).

Martel suffered a heart attack in early 2014. She died on August 12, 2014, of heart disease. Until just a week or two ago, she had maintained a healthy scheduled of public appearances, most of them connected with Star Trek.
