Two actors to exit Star Trek: Discovery
Two actors will depart sci-fi at the end of the second season.
Two cast members of Star Trek: Discovery are set to leave the series.
Anson Mount, who plays Captain Christopher Pike and Rebecca Romjin, who features as Number One, will both depart at the end of the season.
Deadline reports both had been contracted only for Season 2 arcs as part of a plan to sync up Discovery with the original Star Trek lore by the end of the second season.
Both Pike and Number One appeared in the original Star Trek series but fleetingly, with Pike replaced by Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner).
Romjin is well-known to viewers for her work on Ugly Betty and The Librarians.
