Arlene Martel is well-known to "Star Trek" (1966) fans as Spock's Vulcan bride, "T'Pring", in the episode, "Star Trek: Amok Time (#2.1)" (1967). Born in New York City, she spent her early years in one of the poorest slums in the Bronx. When her mother's boss saw her poor living conditions, he personally underwrote her attendance at an upper-crust boarding school in Connecticut. At twelve, Arlene took it upon herself to audition for New York's famed High School of the Performing Arts. Not only did she gain entrance, she also went on to excel at the school--graduating with the school's top drama award. Her professional career began in her teens when she landed the role of "Esther" in the Broadway production of "Uncle Willie", also starring Norman Fell. After heading to Hollywood, Martel began making guest appearances on shows such as "The Untouchables" (1959), "Route 66" (1960) and "Twilight Zone" (1959). She also had the recurring role of "Tiger" on "Hogan's Heroes" (1965). Her facility with accents and dialects enabled her to play a wide variety of characters, earning her the nickname of "The Chameleon". Arlene's relationship with James Dean is chronicled in Joe Hyams' biography, "The James Dean Story". Married and divorced three times, Arlene is the mother of three children: Adam Palmer, Avra Douglas and Jodaman Douglas. She currently resides in Santa Monica, California.
