Guest Stars: where are they now?

Post by simon_a6 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 4:35 pm

Hi all

I was wondering if anyone would like to help find the memorable actors and characters from the series, and find out what they are doing now. Such as the reporter in the 19th Hole, who was also in another episode, and was in Airwolf too.

Or the comedians in KOTP, or perhaps the boy in Good Day at White Rock.

I'm sure it's mostly Google and youTube searching, but would be cool to see.

S.

I think I detect a plant! :)

Funny you ask... Joe Huth is working on a new book which answers all those questions. It won't be able until this summer, but it may be exactly what you're looking for. More info here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=17315

But we can still answer some questions here if we know anything specific.

Oh wow yes. I know a few of those anyway, form the magician to the lovely Rebecca who I have met a few times, and is a darling lady, and a friend on Facebook. Good singer too!

Why, Mike, I don't know what you are referring to? I certainly didn't give simon $5 to post that. :D

No, it'd have to have been at least $10 given the exchange rate. :lol:

Welcome aboard the Knight 2000.

Thank you. What's all this, it looks like Darth Vader's bathroom?

That sure is interesting, especially the younger guest stars who were about the same age as we as kids watching the show, for example Buddy from Pilot, Davey Benson from A Good Day at White Rock and Becky from Race for Life who reminded one of my classmates at the time ;)

No one was paid in the course of this question! :good:
And I did know of the book, but really did completely forget, and since the Locations forum and Bloopers forum threads have been so popular, I thougth one about people would be too.

Arye Gross who played Elliot Sykes in the episode Knight and knerd was the voice adult for Kevin Arnold on the Wonder years pilot episode that was aired right after Superbowl 22. Brian Robbins who played Randy Merritt on the episode soul survivor produced many TV shows and movies like nicks all that,the good Burger movie and norbit.
