Halston Sage, who plays Chief Security Officer Alara Kitan on Seth MacFarlane‘s space adventure show, The Orville, rocked the red carpet at the Fox Fall Premiere Party.


The annual event was held at Catch LA in Los Angeles and featured familiar faces from all the favorite Fox shows. Sage wore a stunning red Alexander Wang dress with a halter top and thigh-high slit. The silky material cinched at the waste, and ended just below the knee. She paired the look with black strappy heels, and let her curly blonde hair down as well.

The Orville is MacFarlane’s attempt to create a humorous version of Star Trek, which comes right on the heels of the newest part of that franchise, Star Trek: Discovery. Many MacFarlane fans were confused at his decision to create an hour-long drama after years and hilarious 30-minute shows, starting with Family Guy.

“It’s really exciting just because we’ve been working on it so long, so the fact that it’s finally out there and people are liking it, it gives you butterflies,” she explained. “I think my favorite thing about this script was that I hadn’t ever read a character like Alara for someone my age ever. She’s the youngest and the smallest and the least experienced officer on the ship, but she’s also the Chief of Security so she’s the one protecting everyone. And I think to me that was really exciting, and she was really someone that i would have looked up to if I had been watching her on TV when I was growing up.”

Tonight Alara goes boxing! New episode of @theorville is on FOX at 9/8c

Sage completely transforms into an alien race on the show, and she says getting through the makeup before shooting is very time consuming. “I’d love to just walk into a Starbucks with all my alien [makeup] and just see if they even notice,” she joked. “Since we hadn’t aired I wasn’t allowed to.”
