Jolene Blalock Biography
Jolene Blalock (born on March 5, 1975 in San Diego, California) is an American actress best known for playing Sub-Commander T'Pol, a Vulcan in Star Trek: Enterprise. Prior to Enterprise, her highest profile role was playing Medea in a 2000 adaptation of Jason and the Argonauts.



Jolene Blalock appears in the upcoming film Slow Burn with LL Cool J and Ray Liotta (filmed in 2003 and unveiled at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2005, it has yet to achieve wide release), and appeared in a high-profile guest starring role on an episode of Stargate SG-1. She is also scheduled to appear on an episode of Lost during the 2005-2006 season, and it has been announced that she will co-star in an upcoming made-for-DVD horror film entitled Shadow Puppets.

On April 30, 2003 she married Michael Rapino. In a twist from usual convention, Jolene Blalock proposed to him rather than the other way around.

A popular model, Jolene Blalock has appeared on the cover of many men's lifestyle magazines and also posed for a clothed fashion layout in Playboy in 2002. She was later interviewed by the magazine for its "20Q" section.

Until recently, Jolene Blalock has expressed reluctance to participate in Star Trek conventions. She made an emotional first appearance at a convention in Pasadena, California in March 2005. Her second appearance was at an autograph signing show in Milton Keynes, England in late April which was soon followed by an appearance at a convention in Bonn, Germany. She is now considered to be involved in the convention circuit, with more appearances planned in 2005.

A self-confessed "Trekkie" and big fan of Star Trek: The Original Series, Jolene Blalock has been openly critical of Enterprise during its third and fourth season. She has stated that she felt that the show was creatively lacking, and that the show's producers were out of touch with Trek fans (although she called the fourth season a distinct improvement over what came before). Her views have proven controversial with some fans. During the spring of 2005, she was quoted in a Toronto Star interview and at her Pasadena convention appearance as calling the Enterprise finale episode, "These Are the Voyages..." "appalling" [2] although the reasons for this opinion were not initially reported. (In a later interview, Blalock expanded upon this by saying that she was upset that the final episode focuses more upon characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation than Enterprise.)

Jolene Blalock's 30th birthday on March 5, 2005, coincided with the filming of her final scenes as T'Pol.
