I have tried to picture a contemporary actor to play Pava, yet no one really comes to mind. I see a wiry but unassuming man who can muster a penetrating stare and a smile that would make a Denobulan squirm.
The late Anthony Perkins (of Psycho
fame) comes to mind, though I understand he was a vegetarian. Pava Lar'ragos fans know he most definitely was not
Here's a link
to a photo of Perkins that reminds me of Pava.
