About Seven of Nine
She is a human who was assimilated by the Borg as a young girl, who is forced to remain on Voyager and adapt to human society. “Seven of Nine is confused by the complexities of human interaction” Ryan, who plays her, explains. “Torn between her past as a Borg and her future as a human, Janeway plays an integral role in helping Seven of Nine adapt to her new reality.”
Ryan was born in Munich, Germany, and after living in Kansas, Maryland, Georgia and Texas, her family settled in Paducah, Kentucky, when she was 11. After graduating from Northwestern University in Chicago as a National Merit Scholar with a B.S. in theater, she moved to Los Angeles.
As a former series regular on “Dark Skies,” Ryan is no stranger to the world of science-fiction. She portrayed Juliet, a mysterious government agent who helped in a secret war against hostile extraterrestrials.
