Another intelligence we can't really do without. It's a good thing he wrote so prolificly. I will have to look at his interview with Polanski later .

never a ginormous fan of the mentals, although i really enjoyed berserk warriors as a song

 

i best remember greedy appearing on a countdown interview so pissed he was almost as incoherent as molly meldrum (although to be fair, molly didn't seem to be drunk, just routinely incoherent)

A very working actor who just never made the big break but has so many great supporting roles Robert Walker has died at 79:

Most would struggle to recall his name but he was so often in the supporting roles without which the stars would not have shone so bright,

 

RIP.

 

Cheers

A one episode guest star as Charlie Evans in episode Charlie X which is 1.02 according to the IMDB - the face looks vaguely familiar though I've not watched a TOS episode in a long time.

 

As distinct from a redshirt, who was usually a single episode security personnel character who dies not long after the first appearance.

 

TNG had a few, generally they were brownshirts.

 Had one of those faces that now has you saying "Oh yeah, who was that guy?"

 

The movies need them, the lesser sung heroes.
