Chase Masterson

Chase Masterson (born Christianne Carafano on 26 February 1963 in Colorado Springs, Colorado) is an American actress, best known for portraying the Bajoran Leeta on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Ivy Lief on General Hospital. Other notable appearances include guest starring roles on Sliders (as Kelly, the sister of Wade Welles) and ER. Masterson hosted an Entertainment Tonight-style news program for the Sci Fi Channel in the 1990s and an Internet-based radio talk show for the website The Fandom in 2004-05. She is also a singer of jazz/torch songs who has released two albums entitled Thrill of the Chase and AD ASTRA! (Latin for "To the Stars!"). Other projects include providing the voice of a character in the anime film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles (sequel to the original Robotech series of the 1980s), and starring as a sultry singer in James Kerwin's sci-fi noir film Yesterday Was a Lie (making use of her early stage work as a singer and dancer). In 2003, Masterson was named one of the "50 Sexiest Women of the Year" by popular men's magazine Femme Fatales (she holds the distinction of being the only actress to appear on the cover twice in the publication's history). Despite her limited run on DS9, numerous fan surveys have shown her to be the most popular guest at Star Trek conventions over the years. TV Guide Online named Masterson the "Number One Favorite Science Fiction Actress on Television" following a reader's poll. Following a series of stalking incidents instigated by a man in Berlin, Masterson was the plaintiff in Carafano v., a controversial legal case in which the courts ruled against Masterson and expanded the definition of "interactive computer services" under the Communications Decency Act.


Chase is fantastic! Looking forward to her newest movie coming out on DVD next month - Yesterday Was A Lie
