Patricia Tallman
 
Does anyone else here like Patricia Tallman, and find her quite sexy? She's perhaps best known for playing telepath Lyta Alexander in Babylon 5, but has also played minor characters on various Trek shows, and been a stunt double for a number of actresses on said shows. So, any fans?

Lovely person too - great fun.

She's one of the few celebrities I'm facebook friends with, and she posts some really wild and raunchy stuff. I love her to death.

One of my favorite things about her is that, while some of us out here in fandom were arguing over preferences between Babylon 5 and Trek, and casting accusations of plot stealing between them, Pat was happily working on both shows at the same time. I think of her as the Emissary, the Ambassador, between the shows.

Pat Tallman is great. She also played Barbara in Night of the Living Dead remake in 1990 alongside Tony Todd as Ben. Nice, different take on Barbara. Matter of fact, JMS saw her in it and said to himself "She's got Telepath Eyes" and that led him to create the part of Lyta in Babylon 5, specifically for her.

Not seen it mentioned yet, but she's also awesome (and topless!) in George Romero's Knightriders, a great film (that's probably just a little too long).

I had to look her up.. Wow.. She's been in a lot of things I've seen but didn't know her name... And as a redhead, she of course gets two big thumbs up from me!!!

I think she stunt doubled for practically every female in TNG, DS9 and VGR. She took the fall into the abyss for Kai Winn. She took the dunking as Beverly in Generations. She doubled Kira Nerys. She was blown up at the Defiant's helm and was on the bridge of the D when it crashed on Veridian. She was a featured actress in "Starship Mine" and an extra in everything else. You could make a drinking game of it - see Pat on screen for a couple of frames as she gets blown up or knocked down, take a shot. Harry Kim is knocking his captors down with a quarterstaff - there goes Pat! :lol:

This thread scared me. I thought maybe she had died.

Wow! She still looks great!

Didn't Tallman marry the actor who wore the Kosh costume (someone else voiced "him", right?)? If true, rather appropriate as Kosh (in story) appeared to have a few, ahem, "close encounters" with Ms. Alexander. ;)

Sincerely,

Bill

Yea, she looks fantastic for being a couple weeks shy of 56

Yup, she was married to Jeffrey Willerth from 1999 - 2008 (IMDB says he only played Kosh in In The Beginning)and now she's with JMS (Not sure if they got married or not) and they are working in his new Production Company together

Andreas (G'Kar) also appeared on both shows at the same time.
