    I remember when I was in high school and V-The Series was in it's
    first airing. My brother was about 2 or 3 and I got him to watch it
    from time to time. He'd always call out "Lizards" as loud as he
    could. To this day, my brother still laughs at me for those days.
    I was a bit old to play V, but when I was young...it was Star Trek.
    My cousin was Captain Kirk and I was Spock.

    Jenny Sullivan

    Jenny Sullivan Played Kristine Walsh in the original V Miniseries
    and V:The Final Battle Miniseries. She was the reporter who
    stood by the Visitors 100% until her ex-boyfriend/cameraman,
    Mike Donovan, proved to her that the Visitors were not friends
    to the people of Earth. She met her demise at the hands of
    Diana.

    Jenny Sullivan was born in 1947. She is the daughter of Barry
    Sullivan. Jenny wrote the play "J for J" (Journals for John)
    which was prompted after she found a packet of unsent
    letters (In 1955) written by Barry decades earlier to her older
    bother, Johnny, who was mentally disabled. John Ritter, who
    also had a brother that was mentally disabled, played Johnny.
    In 1990's, she was working as theatrical director and in 2001,
    the play premiered.

    Her first feature film was "The Angry Breed" (1968) followed
    by "Plaza Suite" (1971), "The Other" and "The Candidate" (1972).

    She has made appearances on TV shows: "Adam-12",
    "Sanford and Son", "Ironside", "Falcon Crest", "LA Law",
    "All in the Family", and "The Fall Guy".

    Information her was brief and I had to dig deep for any
    pictures of her. The only one I found was one of her
    from V. It would have been nice to see something
    more recent.

    I too liked Martin, the 5th columnist, because of his extraordinary selflessness and the risks he took working behind enemy lines. I was disappointed when he was killed in the first episode of the weekly "V" series. His character was very goodhearted and likeable.

    June Chadwick

    Since she appeared in Sanman's Youtube video in the previous
    post...I've decided to do June Chadwick. She was born on
    November 30, 1951 in Warwickshire, England and is an English
    actress. Her mother was a professional bridge player while
    her father worked as a real estate agent. June attended
    music school where she was trained in operatic and classical
    music. She attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.
    June lived and worked in Africa for some years after the
    cancellation of "V: The Visitors".

    Her most famous TV role was as Lydia on "V: The 1985 Series".
    She played a visitor who challenged Diana. She was also in
    "Riptide" and a short-lived series called "Going to Extremes".
    She's made guest appearances on "Magnum, PI", "The A-Team",
    "Matlock", "Murder, She Wrote", "Scarecrow and Mrs. King",
    "1st & Ten", and "MacGyver".

    Her best film credit was "This is Spinal Tap". Other film work
    includes "Forbidden World", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", and "Facing
    the Enemy" (2001).

    She provided the voice of Dr. Sheila Thatcher in the video
    game "Star Trek: Away Team" (2001). Here are a couple
    pictures of the actress known as June Chadwick.

    Duncan Regehr

    I've decided to do Duncan Regehr this time. This guy has had
    quite an interesting life. He was born October 5, 1952 in Lethbridge,
    Alberta and raised in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. His mother,
    Dorothy Mary, was UK-born, and his father, Peter Regehr, was a
    Russian-born artist. He is a Canadian writer, multi-media artist,
    and film and television actor. He has also been a figure skater,
    an Olympic boxing contender, and a classically trained Shakespearean
    stage actor in his native Canada, before heading to Hollywood in
    1980.

    After numerous appearances in Canadian theatre, television, and
    notable roles on radio for the Canadian Broadcast Corporation,
    he and his wife, Catherine, moved to LA, California, where he
    began to develop his work in film and television. His first US
    television role was a short-lived series "Wizards and Warriors"
    in 1983. He went on to star in many more US television films
    including the 1984 mini-series "Last Days of Pompeii", the 1985
    CBS film "My Wicked, Wicked Ways", and "V-The 1985 Series"
    as visitor military leader Charles. He also starred in 1982
    mini-series "The Blue and The Gray". He guest starred on
    "Cybill", "Murder, She Wrote", "Hotel", "Star Trek: The Next
    Generation", and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine".

    His film roles incluce: "The Monster Squad" in 1987, "Earth
    Star Voyager" in 1988, "The Banker" in 1989, "Timemaster"
    in 1995, "Air Bud: World Pup" in 2000, "Krocodylus" in 2000,
    "Flying Virus" in 2001, "Secret Lives" in 2005, "Presumed
    Dead" in 2006, "The Room at the End of the Hall" in 2007,
    and "The Strange Case of DJ Cosmic" in 2008.

    One of his best-known roles to date was in "New World
    Zorro" as the masked hero for 88 episodes on Christian
    Broadcasting Network's Family Channel from 1990 to 1993.

    Less known about him is that he's been painting and
    drawing since childhood. He first exhibited his artwork
    in 1974 at the Stratford Festival in Ontario, Yorkville
    Art Center in Toronto, as well as numerous exhibitions
    in Canada, USA, Britain, and Europe. In 1996, he won
    the American Vision Award of Distinction in the Arts and
    was granted the lifetime appellation 'Royal Canadian
    Artist' with honours in 2000 by the Royal Canadian
    Academy of Art. In 2008, he was awarded the
    honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts by the University
    of Victoria.

    This guy has made quite an impressive name for himself.
    I found a couple pictures of the actor that is Duncan
    Regehr.

    Andrew Prine

    Andrew Prine was born February 14, 1936 in Jennings, Florida. He is
    a well-known stage actor also known for military/western dramas. After
    graduating High School, he made his acting debut three years later in an
    episode of CBS US Steel Hour. His next role was in the 1959 Broadway
    production of Thomas Wolfe's "Look Homeward, Angel". In 1962, he was
    cast in Academy Award-nominated film, "The Miracle Worker". In 1962,
    he landed the lead role in TV Series "The Wide Country". This isn't one
    of his most famous roles, but since this is a "V: The Visitors" forum I'll
    mention that in 1983 "V: The Original" and in 1984 "V: The Final Battle",
    he played Steven, a visitor who led Diana's military forces in LA.

    This guy has guest starred in TV Series, TV Movies, and Movies since
    the late 1950s and has stuff coming soon to television. The list is so
    long that I'll condense it down to more familiar projects. I think that
    this guy has been in just about everything. Let's start with some
    movies: "The Miracle Worker" (1962), "Bandolero" (1968), "This Savage
    Land" (1969), "Simon, King of Witches" (1971), One Little Indian" (1973),
    "Wonder Woman" (1974), "Grizzly" (1976), "Last of the Mohicans" (1977),
    "Amityville II: The Possession" (1982), "And the Children Shall Lead"
    (1985), "Eliminators" (1986), "Mission of the Shark: The Saga of
    the USS Indianapolis" (1991), "Deadly Exposure" (1993), "The Avenging
    Angel" (1995), "Critical Mass" (2000), "The Dukes of Hazzard" (2005),
    "The Glass Trap" (2005), and a movie in post-production "Sutures".
    I barely scratched the surface of his movie career.

    Let's go with some TV Series roles: "Peter Gunn", "Have Gun - Will
    Travel", "Alfred Hitchcock Presents", "The Wide Country", "Gunsmoke",
    "Wagon Train", "Bonanza", "The Fugitive", "Tarzan", "Daniel Boone",
    "The Virginian", "Kung Fu", "Banacek", "Barnaby Jones", "Kolchak:
    The Night Stalker", "Baretta", "Quincy, M.E.", "Hunter", "The Bionic
    Woman", "Hawaii Five-0", "Hart to Hart", "The Fall Guy", "Dallas",
    "Freddy's Nightmares(TV)", "In the Heat of the Night", "Murder,
    She Wrote", "Matlock", "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman", "Star Trek:
    The Next Generation", "Married With Children", "Star Trek: Deep
    Space Nine", "Melrose Place", "Walker, Texas Ranger", "JAG",
    "CSI: Crime Scene Investigations", "Boston Legal", and "Saving
    Grace". I could have added more guest roles, but I tried to
    keep it as short as possible.

    He has recently been on Encore Western Channel's feature
    called "Conversations with Andrew Prine". He received the
    "Golden Boot Award" for his body of work in westerns and two
    Best Actor Dramalogue Awards.

    He is the cousin of Country Singer John Prine. In 1962, he
    married actress Sharon Farrell, but the marriage ended a few
    months later. In 1965, he married actress Brenda Scott, but
    the marriage ended after a month. They remarried in 1966
    and divorced later. Prine is currently married to actress
    Heather Lowe and has been so since 1986. For a guy born
    on Valentine's Day, he had a rocky start when it comes to
    wives.

    This a picture of the actor known as Andrew Prine.

    Leonardo Cimino

    I just watched "Waterworld" and recognized Leonardo Cimino in the
    background as an extra and thought that I would do the veteran
    actor. I looked all over and couldn't find a birthdate, sorry.
    He's listed as an Italian film and television actor. He's been in movies
    and television since the late 1950's. I believe that he's still alive.
    Twice he's played Nazi concentration camp survivors: First time
    in his most famous role as Abraham Bernstein in the 1983 "V: The
    Original Mini-series" and again in the movie "The Monster Squad".

    Some of his more famous television roles include: "Naked City",
    "Kojak", "Ryan's Hope", "The Equalizer", and "Law & Order". I
    mentioned V above.

    Some of his more famous movie roles include: "Amityville II: The
    Possession" (1982), "Dune" (1984), "The Monster Squad" (1987),
    "Moonstruck" (1987), "The Seventh Sign" (1988), "The Freshman"
    (1990), "Hudson Hawk" (1991), "Waterworld" (1995), and his
    most recent work was "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead"
    (2007).

    Here is the only picture that I could find of Leonardo Cimino.

    Jane Badler

    I thought I would give someone time to beat me to it (Possibly,
    do a better bio), but there were no takers. I've decided that
    it was time to do Jane Badler this time.

    Jane Badler was born on December 31, 1953 in Brooklyn, New
    York. She is an American actress. She is best known for her
    role as Diana, the chief antagonist in the 1980's sci-fi saga
    "V: The Visitors" (Both mini-series and the television series).

    She won the title Miss New Hampshire and competed in 1973
    Miss America Pageant. She enrolled at Northwestern University
    in Illinois to study drama.

    Her first television role was on daytime soap opera "One Life
    to Live" from 1977 to 1981. She returned to the role in 1983.
    She also appeared in an episode of "Fantasy Island". She was
    in another daytime soap "The Doctors" from 1981 to 1982.
    After which she was in V. Following V, she guest starred for
    the 1986-1987 season primetime soap opera "Falcon Crest".
    Other guest appearances include "Riptide", "Hotel", and "Murder,
    She Wrote". In 1988, she was in TV series "The Highwayman".
    She then traveled to Australia to film 1980's revival of "Mission:
    Impossible". When the show was cancelled, she moved to
    Australia permanently and married businessman Stephen Hains.
    They have two sons.

    In recent years, she forged a career in cabaret and on stage.
    She sings in some of these plays. She released her debut solo
    album "The Devil Has My Double" in 2008. This is an autobiographical
    album.

    I hope that I did her justice. Here are some pics of the actress
    named Jane Badler.

    Jennifer Cooke

    I've decided to do Jennifer Cooke. She was born September 19, 1964
    in Setauket, Long Island. She starred in "V: The Series" as Elizabeth
    Maxwell AKA the dreaded 'Star Child'. In my opinion, the worst version
    of the Star Child which should have remained a CHILD, not transformed
    into an ADULT over one episode. This is not Jennifer's fault and I'll make
    that personal note in her defense. She married Mo Siegel, who was the
    founder of the very popular Celestial Seasonings Tea Company, since
    1989.

    Her television credits include: "Daddy, I Don't Like It Like This" (1978),
    "The Guiding Light" (1981-1983), "V" and "Covenant" in 1985, "A Year
    In The Life" and "The Hitchhiker" in 1986.

    Her movie credits include: "T & A Academy 2" which sounds like A-List
    material and "Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives" which explains why
    she retired from acting and moved on to the Tea business. She is
    active in the Urantia Brotherhood/Fellowship. Whatever that is?
    It's time to Tea off.

    Here are some pictures of the former actress named Jennifer Cooke.
