Theresa Lee "Terry" Farrell (born November 19, 1963) is an American actress and fashion model. She is best known for her role as Jadzia Dax in the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and later in the comedy series Becker as Regina "Reggie" Kostas.

Early life
Farrell was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the daughter of Kay Carol Christine (née Bendickson) and Edwin Francis Farrell, Jr. Later, her mother married David W. Grussendorf, who adopted Terry and her sister, Christine.

In her junior year of high school, the almost six-foot tall Farrell submitted her image to the Elite modeling agency in New York City. Shortly after, at the age of 16, she was invited to New York City and, within two days of arriving, had an exclusive contract with Mademoiselle. She went on to appear on the covers of the Italian and German editions of Vogue and was also featured in numerous editorials for American Vogue.


Farrell at the 2009 London ExpoAfter 18 months of modeling, she studied acting while still modeling on the side. Her first major roles were in the short-lived 1984 television series Paper Dolls, playing a model, and in the feature film Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield.

In 1989, she began studying acting with Stella Adler and appeared in a number of guest-starring roles in series, including Quantum Leap and The Cosby Show. In 1992, she played Cat in a second pilot for a U.S. version of Red Dwarf, which was not picked up.

Soon after the Red Dwarf USA project folded, she was offered a lead role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Farrell starred as Jadzia Dax, the space station's Starfleet science officer, a character from an alien species known as the Trill, who is host to a 300-year-old symbiont and can draw upon the memories and knowledge of the symbiont's seven previous hosts. The series debuted in January 1993. When she decided to leave the show at the end of the sixth season, Paramount killed off Farrell's "host" character (though continuing the "symbiont" character in a new Dax host, played by Nicole DeBoer).

Farrell then co-starred on Paramount's television comedy series Becker. She played Regina "Reggie" Kostas, foil and love interest to Ted Danson's John Becker, for four years and 94 episodes, before she was replaced by Nancy Travis.

Farrell also provided the voice of Six of One in the animated short film Tripping the Rift, which eventually became a Sci-Fi Channel TV series with other actors providing the voice of Six. First released independently on the Internet, Tripping the Rift originally featured Patricia Beckmann as the voice of Six and was replaced by Farrell's voice for an episode of the Sci-Fi Channel's short film series Exposure, in which Farrell was guest host. Farrell's version of Six was heard only once on television.

Farrell retired in 2002, after marrying actor Brian Baker. They divorced in 2015 and Farrell played a role in the web-released fan film Star Trek: Renegades. She is expected to appear in the same role in episodes of the fan film web series Renegades, which strips mention of Star Trek for legal purposes.

Personal life
Farrell retired from acting to concentrate on her family. She lived in Hershey, Pennsylvania, with her husband, former Sprint Corporation spokesman Brian Baker (a.k.a. the Sprint Guy) and their son, Max. She enjoys sewing and yoga. Farrell appeared with Baker at the Hershey Area Playhouse in Hershey, Pennsylvania, in a production of A. R. Gurney's Love Letters. Farrell and Baker have been divorced since December 2015. In an interview in 2011, she said that she and Deep Space Nine co-star Michael Dorn have always been good friends.

In August 2017, it was reported that she was in a relationship with Adam Nimoy and Farrell confirmed on Twitter that they were engaged. Farrell and Nimoy were married in San Francisco on March 26, 2018, on what would have been Leonard Nimoy’s eighty-seventh birthday.

Farrell and her Star Trek: Deep Space Nine co-star Nana Visitor were honoured in 2001 when William Kwong Yu Yeung named two Small Solar System bodies he had discovered in their names – asteroid 26734 Terryfarrell and asteroid 26733 Nanavisitor.
