    Thomas Hill

    Thomas Hill was born June 2, 1927 and passed away this year on April 20,
    2009. He was a stage actor and director for decades before starting in film
    in the mid 1960s and on television in the 1980s.

    One of Hill's most recurring roles was on 1980s TV series "Newhart". He
    also appeared in the short-lived series "Wizards & Warriors". He had guest
    appearances on "St. Elsewhere", "Remington Steele", "The Facts of Life",
    "Married...With Children", "Coach", and "Law & Order".

    He portrayed Father Andrew Doyle in the 1984 "V: The Final Battle" only.
    When the humans wanted to execute the starchild, he took her to Diana
    aboard the mothership as an offering of peace. He also introduced Diana
    to the Bible in an attempt to show her a different way. Diana eventually
    shot him and the show went on as if nothing happened.

    Michael Ironside

    It's time to do actor Michael Ironside. Born February 12th, 1950
    in Toronto, Canada. His birth name was Frederick Reginald Ironside.
    He's been married twice and has two daughters Adrienne and Findlay
    through both marriages. He's been married to his current wife,
    Karen Dimwiddle, since September 1986 to present. He moved to
    Los Angeles, California in 1982. He was a successful arm wrestler
    in his teenage years. His initial ambition was to be a writer. At 15
    years old, he wrote a play called "The Shelter" that won first prize
    in a Canada-wide university contest; he used to prize money to
    mount a production of this play. He attended the Ontario College
    of Art and studied three years at the Canadian National Film Board.
    He worked in construction as a roofer prior to embarking on an
    acting career.

    Michael has made a strong and indelible impression with his often
    intense and explosive portrayals of fearsome villians throughout
    the years. He began acting in the late 70s and received plenty
    of recogition as a deadly and powerful psychic in David Cronenberg's
    "Scanners". He was likewise very chilling in "Visiting Hours". Other
    memorable roles include:

    "Cross Country", "Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone"
    (Which I might add that I saw in 3-D back in the theatres in the
    1980s), "Top Gun", "Extreme Prejudice", "Nowhere to Hide", "Watchers",
    "Highlander II: The Quickening", "Free Willy", "Bolt", "The Next Karate
    Kid", and "Major Payne". He appeared in two highly entertaining
    science fiction features for Paul Verhoeven "Total Recall" and
    "Starship Troopers". He showed a more tender and thoughtful
    side with his role in "Chaindance". He was in this summer's
    "Terminator: Salvation". He was originally attached to play the
    title role in "Robocop", but was too big to fit into the suit.

    On television, he played the tough mercenary Ham Tyler on the
    epic mini-series "V: The Final Battle" and the short-lived series.
    He had a recurring role on TV series "SeaQuest DSV". Among the
    television programs Michael has done guest shots on are "The
    A-Team", "Hill Street Blues", "Mike Hammer", "The Hitchhiker",
    "Tales from the Crypt", "Superman", "Walker, Texas Ranger",
    "The Outer Limits", "Smallville", "ER", "Desperate Housewives",
    "Justice League", and "Masters of Horror". Like Terence Stamp,
    he played Superman foe and friend; he played "Darkseid" in
    "Justice League" and "Gen. Sam Lane" in "Smallville". More
    recently, he garnered a slew of plaudits and a Gemini Award
    Nomination for his outstanding portrayal of a shrewd biker gang
    leader in the acclaimed Canadian mini-series "The Last Chapter".
    In addition to his substantial film and TV work, he has also lent
    his distinctive deep voice to TV commercials and video games.

    He's a friend of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler and
    he's a big fan of wrestling.

    Here are some pictures of the actor known as Michael Ironside.

    Sandy Simpson

    It looks like I'm starting to dig into the more obscure characters. I've
    decided to do Sandy Simpson. No birthdate or location. He didn't act
    for more than a decade. There wasn't much on this guy, not even a
    good PR picture to be found.

    On "V: The Final Battle", he played Mark, a former police officer who is
    a member of the resistance.

    He did plenty of TV movies between 1981 and 1991. Here is a list:
    "Goliath Awaits" (1981), "Her Life as a Man" (1984), "Triple Cross" (1986),
    "Glory Years" (1987), "Hammer, Slammer & Slade" (1989), and "Without a
    Pass" (1991).

    He guest starred in several TV series between 1981 and 1991. Here
    is a list: "It's a Living", "Hotel", "Off the Rack", "Paper Chase", "Fast
    Times", "The Facts of Life", "Just the Ten of us", "Hard Times on
    Planet Earth", "Hearts Afire", and "Platypus Man".

    Recently, he did some voice work on a movie called "Fly Me to the Moon".
    This was released in 2008.

    This is all that I could find. Feel free to add anything.

    Denise Galik

    I do believe that this will be the last of my obscure characters before I
    do some of the 1985 television series characters and finish up the thread
    until some of the originals appear in the new V. I've decided to do the
    actress Denise Galik. Her birthday is December 4th. She was born in
    Cleveland, Ohio. She married and now goes by Denise Galik-Furey.

    She played Maggie Blodgett on "V: The Final Battle". She was supposed
    to marry Mark, "the police officer turned rebel", that I did in the previous
    bio. They got their brief storyline and were vaporized accordingly in the
    second episode of the mini-series.

    Denise starred in television on soap operas. Her first role was in "Knots
    Landing" 1980-1981. She has also appeared in "Flamingo Road" and
    "General Hospital" 1992-1994. She revived her character from "General
    Hospital" on "Port Charles" from 1997-2001.

    She has made guest appearances on TV Shows:
    "Welcome Back Kotter", "Rhonda", "Charles Angels", "The Incredible Hulk",
    "The A-Team", "Knight Rider", "Magnum, P.I.", and "Law & Order: Criminal
    Intent".

    She has been in TV Movies such as "The Andromeda Strain" (2008) and
    "All She Wants For Christmas" (2006).

    She has also appeared in feature films:
    1975-"The Happy Hooker", 1980-"Oh, God! Book II", 1982-"Deadly Games",
    1983-"Get Crazy", 1986-"Eye of the Tiger", and 1991-"Career Opportunities".

    You guessed it, no pictures of the actress known as Denise Galik-Furey.
    Don't be embarrased if you find something that I could not. My computer
    skills are lacking. Add anything that would be interesting. Thank You.

    Dick Miller

    The last two bios were so depressing that I've decided to do another. This
    time I've picked an actor that has actually been around. Dick Miller is the
    actor that I've chosen to do. He was born on December 25, 1928. His mom
    got quite a Christmas Present. He was born in the Bronx, New York. He
    attended City College of New York as well as Columbia University. He has
    performed on Broadway. He has worked at Bellevue Mental Hygiene Clinic
    and Psychiatric Department of Queens General Hospital. In 1952, he moved
    to California.

    He played Dan Pascal in "V: The Final Battle". He helped the resistance
    make fake security passes to get past the Visitor guards at the gala at
    the Los Angelos Medical Center. They eventually caught up with him
    and he received a laser blast for his troubles.

    Dick is an American actor who has appeared in many films, particularly
    those produced by Roger Corman, and later in films of directors who
    started their careers with Corman, including Joe Dante and James
    Cameron. He's had a part in all of Roger Corman's movies.

    His movie roles include:
    "White Line Fever", "The Terminator", "Night of the Creeps", "Small
    Soldiers", "It Conquered the World", "Tales From the Crypt: Demon
    Knight", "Bucket of Blood", "The Little Shop of Horrors", "Chopping
    Mall", "The Howling", "Gremlins", "Gremlins 2: The New Batch", and
    "Pulp Fiction".

    His television credits include:
    "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine", and
    he did the voice of gangster Chuckie Sol in the animated film "Batman:
    The Mask of the Phantasm". He also directed an episode of "Miami
    Vice".

    Jeff Yagher

    I've just rewatched the first four episodes of the 1985 series with the episodes:
    Liberation Day, Dreadnaught, Breakout, and The Deception, and I've decided to
    do Jeff Yagher. He was actually considered a main star on this show.

    He was born January 18, 1961 in Lawrence, Kansas and is an American actor.
    He graduated from Ohio State University and then attended the prestigious
    Yale School of Drama, where he appeared in productions of "The Vultures",
    "We Can't Play, We Won't Play", and "Las Madres".

    His television debut was in "V: The Series" in 1985. He played Kyle Bates,
    the son of Nathan Bates. Later, he starred in "21 Jump Street" in a role
    taken over by Johnny Depp. He also appeared in several episodes of "Six
    Feet Under". Most recently, he continues to appear in other shows such
    as "Without a Trace" and "Bones".

    Other guest appearances on television include:
    "Tales from the Crypt", "Freddy's Nightmares", "Magnum P.I.", "Murder,
    She Wrote", "The Practice", "Seinfeld", "Alias", "Angel", "Reba", "Walker,
    Texas Ranger", "Star Trek: Voyager", and "Profiler".

    Additionally, he was an Elvis impersonator in an episode of "The Twilight
    Zone".

    His feature film credits include:
    (1989) "Shag", (1996) "My Fellow Americans", (1998) "The Pandora
    Project", and (2003) "View from the Top".

    He's married to Megan Gallagher and has two children. His brother is
    special effects expert Kevin Yagher.

    He is also well renowned sculptor of statuettes for companies such as
    Sideshow and resin model kits for the hobby market.

    Here are some pictures of the actor known as Jeff Yagher.

    Rob,

    If you would like to do either of them...you would not be hurting my
