Last year, just as Sea Shepherd was getting ready to launch the Steve Irwin and head out to sea, we received reports that Daryl Hannah would be joining the crew. In fact, Captain Paul Watson told Australia’s AAP News Agency, “Daryl is joining our group. She’ll be on board — she’s joining us at the end of the month.”
Then we got word that Hannah would only be involved for a week — with the potential to join the vessel at a later date. Based on this video of a deleted scene from Whale Wars Season Two, it looks to us that the actress was only on board for a day or so — and definitely nothing out at sea. Even so, it seems that the crew got a kick over having her around. “Being in the media profession, there’s really no use for it other than being able to take the light that shines on you and shine it people who are really doing the work on the ground,” she says.
Whale Wars Season Two launches his Friday at 9pm on Animal Planet. Check out the clip below:
