Michele Specht

Star Trek Continues
Actress/Comedienne/Voice Actress
Now staring as Starfleet's first ever ship's counselor, Dr. Elise McKennah in "Star Trek Continues", Michele is also known to Sci-Fi fans as insane bounty hunter Red in "Fallout: Nuka Break", and as Betty the Personality Core in the Portal-based "Aperture R&D".  
Michele grew up in Colorado - and got up on every stage she could manage singing, acting, and unfortunately dancing from the time she could say: "jazz hands".
She earned degrees in Theater and Classical Vocal Music Performance, completed a prestigious internship with "Theatre de la Juene Lune", then moved to London to bartend. After slinging martinis at the Royal Albert Hall for a couple of years, she moved to Los Angeles to sling less pretentious martinis. She hooked up with a sketch comedy group called A.S.S. (Another Showcase Showdown) with which she created and performed dozens of original comedy characters, sketches, short films, and musical numbers for 8 years all over LA and beyond - including the HBO Comedy Workspace and the Aspen Comedy Arts Festival.
A.S.S.'s founding members started a TV/Film production company - Drama 3/4 - who were then hired by the VH1 Network to create, write, and produce VH1's first original scripted comedy television show: "I Hate My 30's" in which Michele starred as series regular Katie. She also appeared on other shows like "CSI:NY" and Disney's "Kickin-It", in Lifetime Network movies like "Backyard Wedding", and in a whole lot of commercials selling all kinds of stuff. She felt very fancy when she made movies with Harvel Keitel in "The Last Godfather", Loretta Divine in "Politics of Love", and Tom Sizemore in "The Columbian Connection". 
Michele has also voiced roles in animated films like Dreamwork's "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa", in animated series like Cartoon Network's "MAR", and Funimation anime series including "Ouran High School Host Club", "Claymore", and "Tsubasa Chronicle". She also pretends she knows how to play the video games she's voiced characters in like “Star Trek Online”, ”Final Fantasy XIII" and "Dynasty Warriors 7&8".
She lives in Los Angeles and spends most of her time on set being told: "GREAT. Now - take it down a notch."
