I believe this actor changed his name and was active in police dramas in the 1990s. Unfortunately, I cannot recall that actor's name, but I remember a "Starlog" interview with him. He said he had portrayed a character in TOS who was killed off, but he wouldn't name the episode or the character because he didn't want to associate his old life with his current one! – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 126.96.36.199 (talk).
- There were many actors who played characters on TOS who were killed off. Are you sure the man in the interview was this actor? If you are absolutely sure, we should be able to find something about it on the internet. --From Andoria with Love 05:49, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I cannot find that old 'Starlog.' The actor said he had been in one of the early episodes under a different name. In his picture in the magazine, he looked a lot older and had no hair, but his face resembled Peter Marko's. There was no other actor I could match up with him satisfactorily. If someone has backissues of 'Starlog' and can locate that article, we could go from there. Actually, there are not a lot of characters killed off in Season 1- Budd Albright (twice!), Bruce Watson, Jerry Ayres, James Farley, Rees Vaughn, Peter Marko, Vince Deadrick,Stewart Moss, Stephen Mines are a few of the actors who exited quickly. Most first year episodes have no fatalities at all--the "red shirt phenomenon" didn't begin in earnest until Season 2! – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk).
