IMDb listed his birth date as 20 March 1995. Star Trek IV was filmed in 1986, so everyone can see this is wrong. Perhaps it is 20 March 1955, this has to be verified. – Tom 21:21, 13 June 2007 (UTC)
- In fact, that date is the death date. --ElAuriano 23:45, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Let us know how you learned about this, please. – Tom 09:04, 3 December 2008 (UTC)
- For what it's worth, the Social Security Death Index has no record of anyone with the last name of "Karas" dying on March 20th, 1995. In addition, there are only two listings for Gregs (or Gregorys) who died on March 20th, 1995: Gregory Teramoto (born May 25, 1961; last residence - Santa Clara, CA) and Gregory C. Maggi (born July 25, 1961; last residence - Allegheny, PA). --From Andoria with Love 08:14, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
- As a lifelong friend of Gregory Teramoto, I can verify that his birthdate was May 25, 1961 and his death date was March 20, 1995. He added Karas (a family name) for his acting career so that he would not be typecast as Asian when he was biracial (Japanese/Greek). He died from complications of HIV/AIDS.

Yes, "just anyone" can say they knew someone, but not "just anyone" has photos of the two of us growing up over decades. Greg was a lifelong buddy and his mom and my mom were also friends. Tons of photos. My verification is accurate. Shannon Smith Hartwell. (P.S. I would love to know who verified my initial statement above. We probably know each other!) – The preceding unsigned comment was added by ShannonSmith (talk • contribs).
Going to try to upload one photo. It's of Greg and me on some random Saturday night in 1979 at the UC Theatre in Berkeley, CA dressed up for The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He was a gorgeous Frank N Furter. Hmm. I do need to be instructed on the upload feature for this page. ShannonSmith (talk) 04:49, March 13, 2014 (UTC)ShannonSmithFigured it out:
