Trivia (3)

Identical twin sister of Rhae Andrece.

Her middle name was her twin sister's first name, Rhae. Rhae's, middle name was Alice. Alice changed her first name, slightly, to Alyce, to seem more exotic, although the pronunciation did not change. It was not necessary for Rhae to change her first name, because it already had an exotic, unusual spelling, although it was still pronounced in the same way as the female name Rae, meaning it sounded like the male name Ray.

She and twin sister Rhae Andrece were discovered on the first night after after filming began for Star Trek: I, Mudd (1967). Producer Gene Roddenberry had been in a panic because he needed at least two female identical twins and couldn't find any. That night, while driving home, he saw the Andrece twins walking down a street. Roddenberry literally pulled over beside them, jumped out of his car and told them that they were going to be on television.
