Jameela Alia Jamil (born 25 February 1986; age 38) is a British actress, television presenter, and activist who voiced Asencia in Star Trek: Prodigy.

Jamil commented, " The Next Generation was my first big introduction to Star Trek, and then I worked my way around to the other shows after that. Deep Space Nine? So good. Like, when did we ever see stories about Black fatherhood in these worlds? DS9 was just so ahead of the game, and I can’t wait to see if what we’re doing now on Prodigy will be as relevant in twenty years’ time." [1]

She is perhaps best known outside of the United Kingdom for her role as Tahani Al-Jamil on the sitcom The Good Place (with Jason Mantzoukas, Eugene Cordero, Marc Evan Jackson, Paul Scheer, and Adam Scott) between 2016 and 2020.
