Who is still acting?

What actors, not including the 'regulars', from TOS are still acting?

There are about 200 actors from the original series still alive--most are 70 and 80 years old, but i was pleaed to see Mariette Hartley on the Mentalist a few days ago.

Anybody else still working in say the last 5 years or so?

Re: Who is still acting?

Terri Garr had TONS of credits for years afterward, but her last IMDb credit is from 2007. Apparently she had to undergo surgery for a brain aneurism in 2006, and though she apparently regained her motor skills, she closest she's come to returning to work was an appearance on Letterman in 2008.

Jack Donner is still working. So is Phil Morris.

Yeah he is. My mind was forgetting the child actors who obviously are a couple of decades younger than the adult ones.

Garr has a motor disease not just an anuerism--I forgot which one. Too bad--I loved her when i was young and stilll do.
Kim Darby is 'young' but i haven't seen her since an X-Files guest shot 10 years ago.

Does Joan Collins still act?

Indeed. Matter of fact, there was a piece about Mr. Takei on CBS Sunday Morning this week.

Here's a link to the video: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50152276n

Michael J. Pollard has a couple of credits within the last couple of years. I think Kathryn Hays and Marj Dusay were still appearing on their soaps within the last five years.

I had forgotten Marj Dusay was still acting in soaps. I thought Hays soap had been cancelled.

Good to know.

Apparently they were both canceled, Dusay's Guiding Light in 2009 and Hays' As the World Turns in 2010.
