Re: How easily do you recognize Trek actors w/out makeup?

I've been to exactly one Con, I immediately recognized Leela standing around...I knew who Herb Jefferson was sitting by himself, on the flip side, I've WAITED on Frank Gorshin shortly before he died and didn't know him.

Re: How easily do you recognize Trek actors w/out makeup?

During TOS' original NBC run, I was watching a daytime game show (apparently "You Don't Say" in 1967), and Leonard Nimoy was one of the guest contestants. He looked a bit odd, as he still had the Spock haircut and sideburns, but it wasn't as heavily lacquered as on ST. And his eyebrows looked really strange, because normal curved brows were drawn in with eyebrow pencil. I don't remember if he wore eyeglasses. There's probably a clip floating around somewhere.

Months ago Micheal Dorn appeared in car commercils for Dodge. It took a few viewings before I realize that "future guy" was Dorn.

Ditto.

As for David Warner, I've always recognized him because, of course, he was ubiquitous in sf movies long before he ever guested on Star Trek: TIME AFTER TIME, TRON, TIME BANDITS, etc.

Heck, he even played Jor-El on LOIS & CLARK!

I think Jeri Ryan looks great out of her Star Trek makeup.

She was a lot of fun on LEVERAGE, playing a character very different from Seven of Nine.

Re: How easily do you recognize Trek actors w/out makeup?

I'm pretty good with most except Andrew Robinson (Garak), Roxann Dawson (Torres), and recently I watched "Unimatrix Zero" and saw Mark Deakins (Axum). I knew I recently saw him but I couldn't figure out where and found out he was Turanj in "The Killing Game" which I watched not too long before.

It really depends on the amount of makeup but I'm usually pretty good at it. However, it's really their voice that helps with recognition.

This is one thing Star Trek excelled at. Many times actors made up as aliens had some of the most beautiful and interesting voices to listen to.

Not till a thread a few months back did it hit me that 'Sex and the City''s Samantha Jones and 'The Undiscovered Country's Valeris were the same actress, Kim Cattrall.

It's a first for me. I never noticed.

John Billingsley was in many episodes of True Blood until they killed him off. I watched several episodes before I realized it was him. I recognized him by his smile.

Great. Now I'm remembering him in those orgy scenes again . . .
