Star Trek makeups: Kai Winn Adami

By the time Bajor regained its independence from the Cardassians, Winn Adami (Louise Fletcher) was one of the more influential vedeks in the Vedek Assembly. An ambitious religious leader, she became the first Kai, the religious leader of the Bajoran people, elected after the Occupation. A member of a frequently outspoken orthodox order, Kai Winn often came into conflict with the Emissary of the Prophets, Starfleet Captain Benjamin Sisko. She eventually turned against the Prophets and attempted to release the Pah-wraiths with the Cardassian Gul Dukat, who ultimately killed her.

I don’t have a decent contemporary headshot of Louise Fletcher: if anyone can provide one, please email themakeupgallery.
