Armin Shimerman: The lady is the very talented Karen Westerfield who stood guard over my makeup from Day one till the finish. Without her, there would have been no Quark –or close-ups.

Armin Shimerman: The answer is yes and no. I and others were on the low end of the Hollywood wage ladder. No extra $ for prosthetics for me,Mike,Aron,Rene anyone. BUT, there was lots of OT and golden time for the extra hours it took. My makeup and removal took the longest. (tweet he replied to is now deleted but asked about pay on DS9)

Kurtwood Smith: I will not confirm or deny that I could possibly look more like this guy at this point… #TBT #pandemicbeard #StartrekVI #FederationPresident

Gates McFadden: The fires are scary and devastating to so many folks in such an already anxious time. I am back from a break from social media as there is much to do in order to work to elect an administration that will treat our planet and ALL its people with compassion, truth and respect.

Gates McFadden: Honestly, I have donated every week to Flip the Senate. I urge you to participate if you possibly can. Without these states, 45 is through. Donate $45 now to flip TX, AZ, GA, and NC: http://45tofire45.com

Kate Mulgrew: Action on climate change that is grounded in science is what this nation needs, and not just on the West Coast. I’m voting for #bidenharris2020 on November 3 – join me in bringing us back to common sense and rational thought. #vote #vote2020 #science @KamalaHarris @JoeBiden

Kate Mulgrew: Democrats could win NC if we stop voter suppression. It helps that a Superior Court just ruled the state may not disenfranchise people who owe fines, fees, or other debts. Donate #45toFire45 and help get those folks registered.

Tim Russ: And there’s this: your democracy is at stake people. You all in these critical states need to play heads up ball!! They will try anything to steal this election. Register, make sure you’re registered, vote early or vote in person.

Denise Crosby: Our 2020 election needs every vote & these four states to go blue. Let’s put it in the bag by getting as many people registered to vote as we can. Donate #45tofire45

Brent Spiner: To secure the electoral college in a state like North Carolina, we’ve got to turn it blue. To do this, we have to fight against voter suppression efforts. Helping to fund registrations by donating #45toFire45 is the way.

Anthony Rapp: It’s National Voter Registration Week! Don’t give up your chance to vote! LetsRegisterNow.com VOTE. REGISTER TO VOTE. Our lives depend on it. (LetsRegisterNow.com)
