    Ohmigod. I had no idea he was still alive.

    I remember him best as the sinister Priest of Karnak in The Mummy's Tomb.

    I always feel a little guilty when that's my reaction... :(

    Given that The Mummy's Tomb came out in 1942, I think I can be forgiven my surprise!

    Clearly, he had a secret stash of tana leaves . . ..

    I've seen 2 of his roles in the Arabian Knights movies, and his two roles in Babylon 5, and a couple other roles, and he always seemed like such a sweet and humble gentle man. He was a suave gentle hottie when he was young, and a suave gentle Father/Grandfather in his later years :drool:

    Just finished watching The Comng of Shadows and Learning Curve. I just really, really like the man portrayed in those two episodes and earlier characters I've seen him play, there is just such a magnetism to such a gentle soul he shows, IMHO, of course.

    ...is insane. --JMS
    I think you're not alone in that opinion. Back in the day, JMS posted the cast/crew's reaction to Bey's character dying:
