Nana Visitor (born July 26, 1957) is an American actress, best known for playing Kira Nerys in the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (DS9) and Jean Ritter in the television series Wildfire.


Visitor began her acting career in the 1970s on the Broadway stage in such productions as My One and Only. Her film debut (billed as Nana Tucker) came in the 1977 film, The Sentinel. On television, Visitor co-starred in the short-lived 1976 sitcom, Ivan the Terrible and from 1978 to 1982 had short-lived regular roles on three soap operas: Ryan's Hope, The Doctors, and One Life to Live.

In 1985, Visitor made an appearance in the TV series MacGyver, in the season one episode "Hellfire" as Laura Farren, and in the season two episode "DOA: MacGyver" as Carol Varnay. In 1988 she made a guest appearance on the TV series Night Court as a lost mental patient. That same year she made a guest appearance on the TV series In the Heat of the Night as the owner of the Sparta newspaper. Prior to obtaining the role of Kira on Deep Space 9, Visitor co-starred with Sandra Bullock in a short-lived sitcom Working Girl, which was based on the feature film of the same name, and co-starred in a failed television pilot for a series based upon the comic strip character, The Spirit. After DS9 ended, she had a recurring role as villain Dr. Elizabeth Renfro on the TV series Dark Angel and starred as Roxie Hart in the touring and Broadway companies of the musical Chicago to favorable reviews. Visitor's run as Roxie on Broadway was interrupted by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but show resumed on September 15, 2001. Visitor was then cast as Jean Ritter on the ABC Family series Wildfire, which premiered on June 20, 2005. She appeared as a guest star in the Battlestar Galactica episode "Faith" in 2008.

Visitor had a small role as Pamela Voorhees in the 2009 Friday the 13th reboot. She has also lent her voice in a few guest appearances on the show Family Guy, such as Rita in the episode "Brian's Got a Brand New Bag" and as the voice of the Enterprise in "Extra Large Medium".
