Sorry for the late notice.

I asked her to stop by to say hello and she wants to talk about her new movie, Creature Unknown that's coming out soon.

Any questions for Chase?

Post them here.

She says she'll stop by mid-morning LA time.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

As Paul mentioned I wanted to stop by today to talk about my new movie: Creature Unknown. I am really excited about this movie. I was just finishing up Terminal Invasion with Bruce Campbell when I received the script for Creature Unknown and loved it because it was completely different role.

It's a fun, horror movie with a masterful plot and a great twist at the end. I play the character Kat who is this true grit character. She's a brilliant and sophisticated scientist who has been forced to turn into an unfeeling motorcycle riding shell of a person who exhibits really no feelings. That's the dilemma of the character as she has to portray this rough exterior character but she has this huge moral concern that eats at her. The life and death decisions she makes cause physical and psychological issues for her.

Many fans here will recognize the name of the director of this movie, Michael Burnett from his work on Star Trek as the brilliant special effects artist. This movie is Michael's directorial debut. This was my first chance to really work with Michael. Michael has a rare talent usually not found in first time directors in that he can assist the actor with connecting with the character but also he understands the technical aspects of filming from his previous screen work. He's an up and coming director to watch out for.

Eric Mittleman's script is both fun and commercial. It is intriguing as it's not trite summer movie 'fare.' The great casting job done by Creative Light put together a tight group of actors that supported each other through out the filming. That's such a wonderful combination to have when doing a movie and my job of acting became less of a job and more like a fun pleasure to work with this talented group.

Another great aspect of this movie is the timeframe we took to shoot the film; it was a tight two week filming schedule and really should be inspiring to the independent film maker. The budget for the movie was modest and shows that quality films can be made without block buster movie budgets. It really brings moviemaking to an approachable level.

I’ll be appearing at the following stores and conventions to promote the movie. Stop by and say hello.

I just found out that she is scheduled to appear at Shoreleave next month---yeah!

Question: Does she really enjoy doing conventions? What is her favorite thing about a convention?



Hi Annie

Yes, I'll be at Shoreleave and ComicCon conventions next month. Also, I'll be doing two in store appearances if you are located in California.

I love doing conventions. One of the truly wonderful things about being a Star Trek actor are the conventions. What actor wouldn't want to experience the outpouring of warmth and love that the fans of Star Trek and really the Science Fiction genre as a whole give to them.

Much love,

Welcome Chase! Where you familiar with the whole "Trekkie" movement when you were cast in ST, and were you prepared for the (sometimes...ahem) overwhelming fan base?


Hello Tina,

I used to have a boyfriend who is a huge Star Trek fan and I could only call him during the commerical breaks when Star Trek: The Next Generation was on television. So I got interested in Next Generation and saw what a wonderful series it was.

A good friend of mine, Johnathan Del Arco had appeared on a couple Next Generation episodes and when Deep Space 9 was casting he encouraged me to audition.

I originally auditioned for the role of Marta and made it to the final 2 and I made such an impression that I was cast as Leeta. Ira Behr then told me the part of Leeta was written especially for me.

By then I knew what a wonderful fan base Star Trek had and I consider myself very fortunate to have been part of Star Trek's legacy. I love meeting fans and being invited to conventions is such a wonderful honor. I have so much fun at the conventions that I'm probably one of the more frequent Star Trek actors to be found at a convention. I've been doing them for the past 8 years and have cherished each and every convention.

Much love,

Dear Chase:

I want to let you know that you have a beautiful voice , you are a natural! I enjoyed your CD (Thrill of Chase) samples on your website. I instantly had to have this and attempted to purchase your Autograph CD but ran into complications. Since I only use AMEX charge card, it is not offered on your site. I had contacted Stompy and he has suggested using ‘PayPal’ however, PayPal for some reason does not accept AMEX when creating an account. Since I do not like using check/Money Order I am inquiring other avenues. To the best of your knowledge, are there any other distributors that carry your CD? Thank you.

Kind Regards,

~Paul Michael


Paul Michael,

Thank you so much for the kind words. We do take check or Money Order for the CD and the CD will soon be available at Crescendo Jazz ( where I believe you can use a credit card to order.

Also, I'd like to point out that some of the proceeds from the sale of my CD ; Thrill of the Chase will go to a worthwhile cause; Hope for Africa. I found this organizaton through the World Health Organization. I donate money through a ministry and 100% of the donation goes to help Ugandan children who have AIDS and their families. Some of my donations have gone to dig wells for fresh water and other improvements in Ugandan villages. If you'd like more information on this organization or to donate contact me.

Much love,

I have listened to a couple of your songs on your cd DOC had mentioned above.

Did you have a voice coach help you with that particular singing style?


Hi Whyknot

I've been singing Jazz since I was 13 years years old. I used to have a nightclub act on Sunset Blvd before I turned to acting.

For this CD I actually did get two vocal coaches. One who was adept in vocal work and working with a microphone and the other who coached me into connecting and getting to the heart of the song.

There's a quote I just love that sums it up quite nicely; great recordings are not about moving notes; they are about moving hearts.

The CD has a great range of songs from fun and entertaining songs to poignant ones. I'm really happy how this CD turned out.

Much Love,

Chase, what's your real name?

It's a rhetorical question because most of your fans have read your bio at IMDb and elsewhere. Were you inspired by Bat Masterson or Chevy Chase?

The majority of us don't bite, by the way.


Hi Color Television,

Chase is a nickname and Masterson is a family name.

Much love,

Hi Chase,

I have a make-up question for you about DS-9.

Wearing the Bajorin nose ridge appliance .......

Does having that on your nose make you want to keep looking at it all the time ?

The reason i'm asking this is it seems Nana Vistor on the first few episodes od DS-9 (especially the pilot) seemed to be always cross-eyed, but then after a episodes, her eyes were fine.

Your eyes seemed to be always perfect


Hello Mike,

It did take some getting used to. Hopefully I didn't appeared crosseyed on camera.

Much love,

Dear Chase Masterson,

I just wanted to say that I am a new fan of DS9 as it wasent in my area for a long time and have been watching it when I can on SPIKE TV. My question is the same as Mike T1k, did the appliance on your skin ever bother you, or any of your other cast mates. I know a lot of the make up is from latex, and if you had a reaction to latex what did they have to do for makeup then???




Hi Diana,

The appliance really didn't bother my skin but as I answered to Mike it does take some getting used to at first but once you get used to it; it becomes invisible.

Much love to you and to all the fans here at I always love stopping by here. There is a great warmth and love in the Star Trek fan base and it shows here.

Much love to you all,
