She's a good actress typically. But I have seen her Janeway footage...not her best work at all.

Some actors just don't 'fit' the roles.

Apparently Bujold just walked off the set--and nobody cared enough to go after her.

The chemistry just wasn't there with Bujold--both onscreen and offscreen. And while the producers of VOY may have had a female captain in mind for the series, they could have went with another male captain if Kate Mulgrew hadn't won them over...on her second audition (she apparently totally blew the first one due to a bad cold she had at the time, IIRC)...

Don't get me wrong - Kate Mulgrew herself isn't the issue, she really was the better choice - it's more the route the character went and a lot of the dialogue she was given over the years.

Bujold isn't actually bad - her take and acting style just isn't a fit for the Star Trek style. Which has a certain method and flow that both actors and writers have struggled with. She also doesn't have a commanding presence which Mulgrew undeniably possessed.

I agree, based on what I saw in the clips.

Shame is, that is she is actually a great actress.

I agree with everything that has been said. Bujold and Mulgrew are both great actresses. Mulgrew fitted the part and Bujold didn't. The footage of Bujold that was shot was dire.

It's was like Bujold didn't care.

I suppose you have got to "get" Star Trek for one of those roles

It was almost like she was trying to screw it up.
