    Robert Englund

    The man, Robert Englund, may not have portrayed my favorite character in
    the original V, but he has portrayed my personal favorite fictional antagonist
    of all time. Yes folks, I couldn't find out the name of the actress who played
    Harmony, so I jumped ahead to my next bio. Robert Englund was born on
    June 6, 1947 in Glendale, California. He is an American actor who is known
    best for appearing in a number of horror films. He is best known as Freddy
    Krueger in the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" Movies and all of it's sequels, and
    a short-lived television series called "Nightmare Cafe". On the TV Mini-series,
    V, he portrayed the lovable Visitor named Willie. He struggled with English
    and fell in love with the previously mentioned Harmony, a human. He joined
    up with the resistance and helped with the birth of the "Starchild".

    He started working in the 1970s. He appeared in several movies which
    include: "Eaten Alive" (1977), "Galaxy of Terror" (1981), "The Fifth Floor"
    (1978), he played the title role in the remake of horror film classic "The
    Phantom of the Opera" (1989), "Night Terrors" (1993), and "The Mangler"
    (1995).

    His television credits include: "Married...With Children" in which he played
    the Devil, "Charmed", "Babylon 5", "Masters of Horror", "Mad TV", "Sliders",
    and "Knight Rider". He did the voice of Felix Faust in the Justice League
    Cartoon, The Riddler in the Batman Cartoon, and The Vulture in the
    Spectacular Spider-Man Cartoon.

    Here are some trivia knowledge for any Robert Englund fans:
    *His father designed U-2 spy plane.
    *Parents: Kent and Janis McDonald.
    *He graduated Granada Hills High School with actor Ossie Beck and
    former Denver Broncos Quarterback John Elway.
    *He attended UCLA (For three years) and The Academy of Dramatic
    Art (Rochester, MI)
    *He is a member of the Actors' Equality Association (1968-), Screen
    Actors Guild (1973-), American Federation of Television and Radio
    Artists, Directors Guild of America.
    *He's been married three times: The first during his college years,
    his second wife, Roxanne Rogers, who played a small part in his only
    directed film "976-EVIL", and his third wife, Nancy Booth.
    *He's ranked #40 top villian in American Film Institutes Top 100 list
    of 100 Heroes and Villians for his role as Freddy Krueger.
    *He auditioned for the part of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars (1977)
    and after failing to get the role, he suggested it to a friend of his
    and that friend was named Mark Hamill.
    *He is a keen surfer.
    *He has one daughter named Elizabeth.
    *He received a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor in "A
    Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" (1987).

    This guy has been around. None of my pictures of the actor
    known as Robert Englund got through. I'll have to come back
    later with some more.

    Diane Cary or Diane Civita

    I have to thank JSith99 for uncovering this actresses name. She wasn't listed
    in the mini-series credits and plenty of the websites I browsed. She's gone
    under two separate names on different shows. It's no wonder I had such a
    time coming up with Willie's human girlfriend Harmony actress' name? Diane
    Cary or Diane Civita seemed to show up. Maybe, one of these is a married
    name?

    She is an American actress who has been featured in several TV shows
    including: "Misfits of Science", "The Bionic Woman" (1977), "The Incredible
    Hulk", "Alien Nation", "Forever Knight", "Tales from the Crypt", "ALF",
    "LA Law", and most recently, "Cold Case" and "Ugly Betty".

    This is about all I can tell you about her. I couldn't find any pictures and
    I did watch a Youtube Video entitled "Harmony's Death by Transpiration"
    and thought I'd share this with you. I hope that I get this right?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPMofD56WCM

    I finally got it right!!!

    I just watched this video (A day later) and I realize that this is a
    really stupid choice for a video. I apologize for the mistake.

    Richard Lawson

    I decided to stay in the character family with Richard Lawson who portrayed
    Dr. Ben Taylor in the 1983 Original V Mini-Series only. His character was
    considered a doctor or scientist to the Visitors and he was forced to join
    the resistance against the Visitors. When his character was killed by the
    Visitors during a heist...His father, Caleb Taylor, and brother, Elias Taylor,
    joined the resistance and fight against the Visitors.

    Richard was born on March 7, 1947 in Loma Linda, California. He served a
    tour of duty in the Vietnam War before embarking on his acting career.
    This would make Richard an American hero. He married Denise Gordy
    in 1978 and has one child. On March 1992, he survived a plane crash in
    Queens, New York.

    His other television credits include: "Hotel Story" (Which was his first
    television show from Australia), "Streets of San Francisco", "Kojak",
    "All My Children", "Soul Food", "MacGyver", "Magnum P.I.", "T.J. Hooker",
    "Save By the Bell: The Next Class", "Chicago Story", "Dynasty", "Strong
    Medicine", "The Division", "The Bernie Mac Show", "The Days and Nights
    of Molly Dodd", and "JAG".

    His movie credits include: His first movie was "Dirty Harry" (1971),
    "Scream Blacula Scream" (1973), "Sugar Hill" (1974), "The Main
    Event" (1979), "Poltergeist" (1982), "Streets of Fire" (1984), "Stick"
