Born March 5, 1975 in San Diego, California. Is an American actress best known for playing Sub-Commander (later Commander) T'Pol, a Vulcan in Star Trek: Enterprise. Prior to Enterprise, her highest profile role was playing Medea in a 2000 adaptation of Jason and the Argonauts.
A popular model, Blalock has appeared on the cover of many men's lifestyle magazines and was twice featured in Maxim's "Girls of Maxim" gallery. She posed for a clothed fashion layout in Playboy in April 2002. She was later interviewed by the magazine for its "20Q" section in February 2005. Blalock also appeared in an episode of CSI and in an episode of JAG, as well as Ishta a female warrior leader in Stargate SG1.
Blalock's 30th birthday coincided with the filming of her final scenes as T'Pol. During the spring of 2005, she was quoted in a Toronto Star interview and at her Pasadena convention appearance as calling the Enterprise finale episode, "These Are the Voyages..." "appalling" although the reasons for this opinion were not initially reported. In a later interview, Blalock expanded upon this by saying that she was upset that the final episode focuses more upon characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation than Enterprise.
Blalock made a first appearance at a convention in Pasadena, California, in March 2005. Her second appearance was at an autograph signing show in Milton Keynes, England, in late April; this was soon followed by an appearance at a convention in Bonn, Germany, and others. In March and April 2006, Blalock filmed I Dream of Murder, a made-for-cable film, in the vicinity of Calgary. She appeared in the film Slow Burn with LL Cool J and Ray Liotta which was filmed in 2003 between seasons of Enterprise, unveiled at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2005 and finally saw limited theatrical release in 2007.
She guest starred in two episodes of Stargate SG-1 as Ishta, leader of a group of female Jaffa. She was scheduled to appear on an episode of Lost during the 2005-2006 season as a former love interest of Sawyer (Josh Holloway). Even though she filmed some scenes, the flashback scenes in that episode were changed from Sawyer to Michael (Harold Perrineau), and her scenes were never actually used in an episode, nor featured as "deleted scenes" in the DVD set's bonus material. Set photos from the shooting of a scene surfaced in 2008. She co-starred in a horror film entitled Shadow Puppets. Her most recent film appearance is as Captain Lola Beck in Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, a sequel to the film Starship Troopers, which was released on August 5, 2008.
