StarTrek.com is saddened to report the passing of Ronnie Claire Edwards. The actress, who was best known for her role as Corabeth Walton Godsey on The Waltons and in several of the Waltons reunion telemovies, made her mark on the Star Trek universe with her guest star appearance as Talur in the “Thine Own Self” episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Talur was the Barkonian teacher/scientist/healer who tried to help Data after the android completely lost his memory and wandered into a village carrying a container full of the radioactive metal. Edwards, who lived in Dallas, Texas, died in her sleep on June 14 at the age of 83.
In addition to TNG and The Waltons, Edwards — whose credits dated back to 1963 — appeared in such other films and shows as Boone, Dallas, Sara, Dynasty, Nobody’s Fool, Designing Women, The Dead Pool and Inherit the Wind (the TV version with George C. Scott and Jack Lemmon). She also wrote plays, including Idols of the King, and published a book entitled The Knife Thrower’s Assistant: Memoirs of a Human Target.Please join StarTrek.com in offering our condolences to Edwards’ family, friends, colleagues and fans.
