Kathie Browne (19 September 1930 – 8 April 2003; age 72) was a California-based actress who appeared as Deela in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode "Wink of an Eye". She filmed her scenes between Wednesday 18 September 1968 and Wednesday 25 September 1968 at Desilu Stage 9 and Stage 10.
She appeared in many films and TV shows such as Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, My Favorite Martian (starring Ray Walston), The Wild Wild West (with Lee Bergere), Fantasy Island (with Ricardo Montalban), Hondo (in a recurring role) and Kolchak: The Night Stalker (with her husband Darren McGavin, to whom she had been married since 1969). Browne and William Windom appeared together in one episode of McGavin's previous series, The Outsider. Interestingly enough, before she met McGavin he starred as the captain of the Enterprise (the Riverboat Enterprise, that is) in the 1959-1961 series Riverboat. Browne also appeared in The Love Boat, Sea Hunt, and 77 Sunset Strip, among others. She also had a minor role in the 1965 movie Brainstorm, which starred Jeffrey Hunter. One of her four appearances on Perry Mason was with Sherry Jackson.
She died of natural causes in 2003 in Beverly Hills, California.
