Michael Ansara, known for numerous roles, including Kang in Star Trek, has died. He was 91.
Among other tidbits, he was married to Barbara Eden back in the '60's, and more recently to his wife Beverly until his death.
When I read about Barbara Eden's connection, I had this vision of Kang having a 'Major Nelson' moment as Jeannie plays tricks on him. That would have been one very silly Star Trek episode! But I digress!
Truly a great actor, and the iconic Klingon in my book!
Then there is that Elric/Mollari conversation...
Elric: As I look at you, Ambassador Mollari, I see a great hand reaching out of the stars. The hand is your hand. And I hear sounds—the sounds of billions of people calling your name.
Londo: My followers?
Elric: Your victims.
— “The Geometry of Shadows,” Babylon 5
Another wonderful moment from that episode, r.e. the Technomages:
We are dreamers, shapers, singers and makers… and we know many things… fourteen words to make someone fall in love with you forever, seven words to make them go without pain, how to say goodbye to a friend who is dying. How to be poor, how to be rich, how to rediscover dreams when the world has stolen them from you.
R.I.P. Michael Ansara. Thanks for all of the great memories!
