Perhaps her most memorable roles are Dr. Grace Holloway in the 1996 Doctor Who movie and the titular character in "Melora" Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Sci Fi fans are quick to point out that Daphne is the only woman to have a starring role in both the Star Trek and Doctor Who franchises. She has starred in many TV movies and Mini-Series, including; Rock, about Rock Hudson’s life. Daphne played Phyllis Gates, Rock’s wife, who had written the book the Mini-Series was based on.
