Actress Linda Park portrayed communications officer Ensign Hoshi Sato on Star Trek: Enterprise. Born in Seoul, South Korea, she moved with her parents to San Jose, California when she was one year old.
Park had her first stage appearance when she was a child as Princess Rhyme in the show The Phantom Tollbooth in the community theater. By her high school years, she was already a professional actress, with her first paid performance being in Tom Stoppard's play Arcadia. She studied for four years at Boston University, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts and continued her involvement in the theater.
After graduation, she spent some time in New York, and later went to Hollywood. There she applied for roles in Rush Hour 2 and Jurassic Park III (both released in 2001), ultimately winning a supporting role in the latter film – the first time she set foot on a big Hollywood set. Frequent Star Trek guest actor Bruce French also made an appearance in the film.
Park subsequently made a guest appearance on the television series Popular at the same time her future Enterprise castmate Anthony Montgomery was working on the show, and the two appeared in the same episode. Shortly thereafter, Park received a phone call inviting her to read for the part of Hoshi Sato on Enterprise.
At the first reading for the role of Hoshi Sato, Park faced many Asian actresses who also wanted the role, but she was called back to read again. The producers then decided to hold a screen test and eventually gave her the part. She went on to play the role throughout all four seasons, from 2001 until its cancellation in 2005.
In 2004, while Enterprise was still in production, Park took time off from playing Sato to co-star with Next Generation actress Marina Sirtis and Enterprise guest actor Tucker Smallwood in the science fiction thriller Spectres. She went on to co-star with Sirtis in the Enterprise series finale "These Are the Voyages...", in which Sirtis played her familiar role of Deanna Troi.
Park's other credits include the little-known films Geldersma (2004) and Honor (2005). She also made a brief appearance in the 2002 made-for-TV movie Taken (not to be confused with the mini-series of the same name) and, in 2003, she produced and starred in the short film My Prince, My Angel. She filmed a horror comedy called Infestation with Ray Wise.
Park has remained active in theater since the cancellation of Enterprise. She earned high praise for her performance as Clytemnestra in a production of the play Agamemnon, which ran in New York City in October and November of 2005. She also remains an active student of dance, studying ballet and other dance forms.
She recently starred as police officer Sally Lance on the short-lived NBC series Raines. The series premiered mid-season, March 2007, and concluded the following month.
Linda then was cast as one of stars of the ABC police drama Women's Murder Club. Although this series premiered October 12, 2007, Park did not make her first appearance on the show until the next episode, airing October 19. But the show only made it through another eight episodes before cancellation. Since then, Linda has made several guest appearances on TV series.
At one time, Park was dating actor Tom Hardy, who played Shinzon in Star Trek Nemesis. They lived together in South London, England, and were even going to form their own theater company. However, they appear to have broken off their relationship, and she is now residing in Los Angeles, California.
