After donning makeup and prosthetics to play the role of three different characters in the first two seasons of Star Trek: Discovery, the man behind Kol, Kol-Sha, and Tenavik will finally get to show his own face in the series!
In an interview for the Official Star Trek Magazine (via Trek Core), Kenneth Mitchell revealed that he's playing an entirely new character for the third season of Star Trek: Discovery. "I'm playing a human character," Mitchell revealed. "It's beautiful, and I'm excited for the fans to meet him."
"I am also thankful for the continued support of Alex (Kurtzman), Michelle Paradise, Olatunde (Osunanmi), Jonathan Frakes, and everyone at Secret Hideout, who made it happen for me," the actor added, also revealing that his character will appear in two episodes later in the season.
As mentioned, Mitchell played the Klingon antagonist known as Kol in the first season of Discovery. For Season 2, not only did he return to play another Klingon warrior named Kol-Sha, which is Kol's father, he also played the part of Tenavik, a Klingon monk and keeper of the time crystals at the Boreth monastery.
It's exciting to know that he'll be bearing his human face when he returns for the third season and we can't wait to learn more about his new human character in the Discovery series.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 is set for release on CBS All Access on October 15.
