Arlene MartelArlene Martel

Arlene Martel (Arline Sax) has performed in a great many productions in her career. Her early work includes two Twilight Zone episodes. She played the Nurse in Morgue in “Twenty Two” (1961) and Girl in Bar in “What You Need” (1959).

Other credits include: Spock’s Vulcan bride "T'Pring" in the Star Trek episode “Amok Time” along with roles in  Columbo, Battlestar Galactica, Hogan’s Heroes, and Perry Mason. Yet in each of these roles, as well as many others, her physical appearance is so completely different that many people may not realize that each character is played by the same actress.  Arlene's ability to make such transformations earned her the nickname "The Chameleon" while working at Universal Studios. She is often unrecognizable not only by virtue of her looks, but by her name as well.
