When watching SF shows I often see actors who have been on other SF shows.
I’m talking about unrelated shows, not a SG1/Atlantis crossover.
Lexa Doig was on Adromeda and Stargate : SG1
and the obvious Ben Bowder and Claudia Black in Farscape and SG1
Jewel Stait was on Firefly and Stargate Atlantis (as a one-off and as different character as a recurring role*)
Christopher judge starts in SG1 and was on Andromeda
Conner Trinear(sp?) was on Enterprise and Atlantis
Jolene Blalock was on Enterprise and SG1
If you consider “Lost” SF, Mira Furlan is in that and Babylon 5
There was actor who was on B5 and DS9 at the same time
Any others? Anybody on 3 unrelated properties? Regular / recurring roles preferred, but one-offs allowed
*I haven’t seen here in the regular / recurring role, but I have heard about it
Stretching the definition of SF just a little, perhaps, but…
Bruce Campbell had a recurring role in Hercules and Xena (as Autolycus), played Brisco on The Adventures of Brisco County, jr, did a voice in two episodes of Megas XLR (a character named Magnanimous, clearly based on him), and appeared in several episodes of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. (I think that’s all for his TV SF work.)
Not quite. He was in the “Terms of Endearment” episode of The X-Files.
Another X-Files guest star (in “Travelers” and “Agua Mala”) was Darren McGavin, who earlier starred in the short-lived original “Kolchak: The Night Stalker.”
And watching the episode “Demons” I thought the detective who arrested Mulder sounded familiar. It was Jay Acovone, who had been Joe the assistant DA (Catherine’s boss) in Beauty and the Beast (anyone else remember that?). The two shows also shared Howard Gordon as a producer and writer.
“The Secret Room” episode of the cartoon The Secret Show has Tom Baker (the fourth Doctor Who) as a guest voice.
