Brooding actor of the 1970s with sunken cheeks best known for his role of James Dean in the 1976 mini-movie which co-starred ex-wife Meg Foster. Also played the evil Gabriel in the TV series Beauty and the Beast (1987).

Of Scottish and Irish descent.
Has appeared in episodes of two different series with Scott Bakula in which he played a character involved in mining: he played a Russian miner named Stawpah in the Quantum Leap (1989) series finale "Mirror Image" and an alien mine foreman in the Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) episode "The Xindi".
Perhaps his most famous appearance is in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) episode "In the Pale Moonlight," where he plays Romulan Senator Vreenak, who Captain Sisko, Avery Brooks, attempts to dupe into believing that the Dominion is about to invade his homeland. That episode is considered by many to be one of Star Trek's finest and his hissing delivery of the line "It's a FAKE!", regarding the recording Sisko provided is especially popular.
Bears a striking resemblance to actor Lance Henriksen, with whom he is often confused. The both appeared on an episode of the '80s TV show Beauty and the Beast (1987) called "Snow".
He is the only actor to appear in Beauty and the Beast (1987) and its remake Beauty and the Beast (2012). He played Gabriel in the former and Mr. Zalman in the latter.
