Re: Favourite minor character?

Sebastian.

The vorlons are the good guys and they send this person to 'interrogate' delenn?

What does that tell us about the vorlons?




Little did we know....

Excuse me, but you're talking up Jeffrey Combs' career and his ability to do creepy without mentioned Re-animator?

I also heart Combs.

Awesome performance there. I have a T-Shirt with his image on it that says "Dr. West has a good head on his shoulders....and his desk"

Re: Favourite minor character?

Didn't Jeff Coombs also play the Ferengi Brunt in several episodes? Proof he can also do funny!

Yup, In DS9 he played Brunt, Weyoun, and a one off character as well (The one being hunted on the station, I believe). And of course, one of the very few high points of Enterprise, he played the main Andorian.

Re: Favourite minor character?

For me it was Cartagia, but Neroon was a close second. Cartagia was a perfect example of the right role and the right actor coming together. It was perfection, and so much fun (and unsettling at times) to watch.

Re: Favourite minor character?

I had to vote for Zathras, although I do like Ta'Lon and Corwin. Neroon and Cartagia are good as well.

I did. I voted for Corwin. I thought he should have been the captain of the station in "Sleeping in Light."

Re: Favourite minor character?

That would be sweet -- but it would also mean that his career would be pretty much dead, right? Maybe we should wish slightly better for him.

For all we know, his career was dead by then anyway. He evaporates into the aether after "River of Souls"
