Which horror actress has filmed a small role in JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness…

Production has long wrapped on JJ Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. But that hasn’t stopped a new piece of casting news for the film emerging.

It’s been revealed that Heather Langenkamp has filmed a small role in the upcoming film. Langenkamp remains best known for her role in A Nightmare On Elm Street, but she revealed to Horror News that she and her husband worked on some of the make up effects for the film. She added that “I had the opportunity to play a small part in Star Trek, so I’m looking forward to that”.

Inevitably she added that “I can’t tell you anything about that”, but did add that “that was a thrill for me”.

Don’t be surprised if her role is similar in size to, say, Christian Slater’s in Star Trek VI, but we figured you’d want to know anyway. Here’s the full story at Horror News.

On scanning this article, I saw Christian Slater's name first. Now that would have been some casting news!

I bet, in these unsure financial times, she doesn't do with her pay cheque what Slater did with his and have it framed rather than cashing it.

Christian Slater was in Star Trek VI

Yes, Christian had a small cameo. He was such a big fan of Star Trek, he asked for a part.

Speaking of cameo's (spoiler alert), I know someone that worked on the new Star Trek movie and he told me about 3 cameos. One is Chris Doohan, the son of Scotty! He was in the last one and has a bigger part in this one. The other two will remain a secret ...for now. K
