Boldly going, on new ‘Star Trek’ movie

She’s at it again — but this time on the big screen in a big blockbuster.

Laura Parker, who spent some of her childhood in Halifax and is a daughter of Dr. Chuck Parker, has a role as an extra in “Into Darkness,” the new Star Trek movie that premiered this past weekend.

Her father says she can be seen a scene where Captain Kirk goes to sick bay. The filming was top secret and was done at a different company’s studios to keep plot secrets from leaking, he adds.

Parker, who went to Sinai Elementary and Halifax County Middle schools in the 1990s, has also enjoyed roles in television recently.

Parker moved to Los Angeles in 2010 after graduating from Harvard University’s MFA program in acting at the American Repertory Theatre/Moscow Art Theatre Institute for Advanced Theater Training.

She is also a half-sister of Hannah, Lydia, Graham and Greyson Parker, all of Halifax.
