Actress Arlene Martel Memorial Video - Star Trek's T'Pring

Arlene Martel (April 14, 1936 – August 12, 2014) was an American actress and acting coach.

Martel appeared in the Star Trek episode "Amok Time" (1967) as T'Pring, the original The Outer Limits episode "Demon with a Glass Hand" (1964), the French Underground contact Tiger in five episodes of Hogan's Heroes, a female cosmonaut on I Dream of Jeannie, and a Hungarian immigrant Magda on The Fugitive episode "The Blessings of Liberty" (1966). She appeared in two classic The Twilight Zone episodes: "What You Need" and as the nurse who repeatedly utters the sinister phrase "Room for one more, Honey!" at the entrance to a hospital morgue in "Twenty-Two." She also appeared in Columbo, Six Million Dollar Man, The Monkees, The Man From Uncle, Mission Impossible, Battleship Galactica, and The Wild Wild West.

Martel married and divorced three times. Her first marriage was to Robert Palmer. Her second marriage was to actor Jerry Douglas. Her third was to Boyd Holister. She had three children: Adam Palmer, Avra Douglas, and Los Angeles Times editor Jod Kaftan.

Martel died on August 12, 2014. The death was announced via her friend Marc Cushman, whose book series These Are The Voyages about the production of Star Trek had recently been published; Martel's last public appearance had been with Cushman in Santa Monica, California, to promote the book. The announcement was made via Cushman's Facebook page, noting the actress had recently suffered a heart attack.
