Andreas

I was watching Enterprise the other night - I haven't seen ALL of them and stopped to check it out when I didn't recognize the title - and there was our Andreas! My gosh... no matter what role he played he was soooo smooth, his performances just seamless. What an amazing talent he was and how blessed we are that he was our G'Kar!

Re: Andreas

Yes, it's a real shame. I know I've enjoyed his acting immensely, and it was tragic to lose him so soon.

I record them on Monday nights on VHS (Although can't do so anymore now with Heroes starting tonight) and then transfer to DVD when the opportunity arises, and just saw this one last night. He did a great job, I knew from the opening before even seeing his face, that it was his voice, and got all giddy inside

I started jumping around when I heard his voice! I knew immediately who it was, as you said, they didn't show his face right away. I thought later how nice it was to see his face for a change, instead of trying to picture him under alot of makeup!

Yea, I think the closest I've ever come to seeing his real face was when he played Tomalok on TNG.

Fopn't forget you can catch him sans makeup as the one armed man in the film remake of "The Fugitive"

Re: Andreas

You should rent it, Sindatur! It was really was a good movie, and Andreas was sooo good in it! What kind of accent was it that he used...anybody know? At the time, I think I guessed Chicago "street", not sure at all, though! If you're from Chicago, don't laugh at me for that... I'm a Yankee living in the desert, what do I know?! I just have a thing for accents!

Re: Andreas

He also has a role in Next of Kin, which has a great cast. It's a decent film for its genre, and gets played on cable fairly often.
