Personal Log: Julia Buck (T'Pring)



Julia grew up in New Jersey and came to Seattle by way of Los Angeles five years ago. She played McCoy in Outdoor Trek's 2011 production This Side of Paradise after seeing the group rehearse while she was in a production of Much Ado About Nothing. Julia can most frequently be found onstage at Valley Center Stage in North Bend; she continues her theatrical training with Aaron Levin. When not doing theater, she works at Expedia in their email marketing department.

What do you think of Outdoor Trek so far, and what are you looking forward to about the upcoming production?
I love Outdoor Trek-- it's been one of my favorite summer traditions in Seattle to be a part of, and I love the thought and care that go into re-imagining instead of just re-creating. I'm most looking forward to sharing a nuanced version of T'Pring. While her actions are not sympathetic, especially to an audience that knows and loves Spock, I see someone who has been placed in a difficult situation that will affect the course of her entire life and uses logic the means to emotional end goals, rather than a sadistic monster.

What cool things do you do in your life apart from Outdoor Trek?
I write in my spare time, but I've only recently started to think about sharing what I write. I have a play that I may be workshopping next year. I volunteer with Seal Sitters, part of the Marine Mammal Stranding Network, protecting marine mammals on shore and educating the public. I do ad-hoc volunteer work with a variety of other environmental groups. This February I did my second triathlon, and I want to do more than just one a year. I love to go to and support Seattle Opera, Seattle Art Museum, Pacific Science Center, and Seattle Aquarium. We're lucky to live in an area with so many cultural treasures. I'm married, and my husband recently acquired an antique wooden boat, so I'm learning about sailing and wooden boat upkeep.

What history do you have with theatrical productions?
I've been acting onstage since I was about nine years old. I stopped for a while after I graduated college, but that made me realize how much I missed what it brought to my life. I've done at least one show a year since moving to Seattle five years ago. 

What history do you have with Star Trek?
Not much! I've seen the movies. I try not to watch TOS episodes because I want to avoid influencing my own performance. 

What's one thing you think an extraterrestrial should know about humanity ?
Humanity is much more diverse than it seems at first blush, both in forms and abilities, and it seems that humanity itself is still awakening to that fact.
