Bio

Linda Park is a Korean-American actress best known for her portrayal of communications officer Ensign Hoshi Sato in the television series Star Trek: Enterprise, appearing in 98 episodes from 2001-2005.

She is also known for her role as Michelle Lance, a police officer, in the short-lived television drama series Raines, in 2007.

Park was born in South Korea and raised in San Jose, California. She participated in a number of theatrical productions in her teens at Notre Dame High School and Bellarmine College Preparatory, ultimately leading to study for a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Boston University.

During her college career, she spent a semester in England, studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Among her college stage credits are Mad Forest, Lysistrata, Cyrano de Bergerac, Richard III and The Trojan Women.

Less than a year after graduation, she was cast in the role of Hoshi Sato in the fifth incarnation of the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Enterprise. Sato was the ship's communications officer, with a natural gift for translating alien languages.

Park herself is fluent in English, Korean, and Spanish.

Park is an active student of dance. Remarking that "dancing has always been my second love", she still studies ballet, among other dance forms.

Park is a bronze-level international Latin ballroom dancer.

In October 2003, Park starred in UA's world premiere of the Mary Fengar Gail’s play Fuschia. She also produced and starred in her first short film, My Prince, My Angel, in August 2003.

From October 19 to November 11, 2005, she played Clytemnestra in a New York City production of Agamemnon.

She has appeared in the feature films Jurassic Park III (2001), Taken (2002), Spectres (2004), Geldersma (2004), My Prince, My Angel (2006), and Honor (2006).

She made her screen acting debut in the 2001 episode of the dramedy Popular, entitled "Fag" (Season 2, Episode 16).

She currently lives in Los Angeles, California, where she is the co-founder of the theatre company Underground Asylum.

She is not related to actress Grace Park of Battlestar Galactica fame.
