Nigel Havers was one of the male actors considered if that came to pass.

When Bujold walked off the set, a number of the VOY cast expressed some concerns that the producers would indeed cast a male as the captain and would have caused them to make other cast changes (a male character might have to be rewritten as a female and vice-versa)...
The sad part is Bujold is actually a talneted actress, who has done some good movies. But her acting here is horrible, like she was trying to get fired.
