Earlier this week, word broke that actress Michelle Yeoh had been cast in the CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery. At that point in time, details surrounding her role were not available, though it was rumored that she had been cast as the show's lead.
Now, Deadline seems to have solved the mystery of whom the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon actress will be portraying in the highly anticipated Sci-Fi series. And, while she has been cast in the role of a Starfleet Captain, it is not the USS Discovery she will find under her command.
Sources close to production claim that Yeoh will actually be playing Captain Han Bo, and her ship is the Shenzhou. Yeoh and her ship are said to play a significant role in the first season of Star Trek: Discovery. No further details were given.
CBS TV Studios declined to confirm Yeoh’s casting.
