Mini Bio (1)

Max Grodénchik was born on November 12, 1952 in Queens, New York, USA. He is an actor, known for The Rocketeer (1991), Rising Sun (1993) and Rumpelstiltskin (1995).

Trivia (7)

Before getting the recurring role of Rom on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), he auditioned for the role of Rom's brother, Quark.
Grew up in New York City public housing. His brother Barry is a State Assemblyman from Queens.
Is fluent in German and French.
Has his own action figure in the likeness of his character, Rom, from the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) TV series.
Along with fellow DS9 co-stars Aron Eisenberg, Chase Masterson and the late Cecily Adams, he was part of the popular "Ferengi Family Hour" comedy sketch that frequented Star Trek conventions.
Before playing the part of Rom (or auditioning for the part of Quark) on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993), Max played the part of the Ferengi, Sovak, on the Star Trek: The Next Generation: Captain's Holiday (1990) episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987).
Was a semi-professional baseball player in high school and considered going full professional, before deciding to become an actor. Ironically, a major plot point of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Take Me Out to the Holosuite (1998) was that his character, Rom, was a bad baseball player. In fact, Grodénchik was literally incapable of playing as badly as he was supposed to, which is why Rom plays left-handed in the episode; it was the only way Grodénchik could avoid looking like a skilled player trying to play like a bad player.
