I wonder what the reaction is like for character actors as these when they suddenly start getting recognized by fans for appearances on any particular show (not just ST). These people are used to being on a different show every week, in relative obscurity compared to stars, and suddenly they get a following. How do they cope when they stop being an anonymous citizen?
It might be fun to interview "the most interesting man in the world." He was a mostly unknown character actor in the 70s who has come to be one of the most recognizable faces in advertising.
