Sirtis worked extensively in British television, but won roles in several American films, including The Wicked Lady with Faye Dunaway, Death Wish III opposite Charles Bronson, and Blind Date with Bruce Willis. Hoping to find more work in the U.S., she moved to Los Angeles in 1986, winning a role in Star Trek: The Next Generation the following year. Her last appearance as Deanna Troi was, ironically, in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, where she played opposite her longtime co-star Jonathan Frakes. In recent years, she has played a recurring role in the syndicated comedy Girlfriends and guest-starred on Without a Trace and Three Rivers.
