Jimmy Doohan, R.I.P.
The second member of the original Star Trek cast to go. (The first was Deforest Kelley.) He survived six bullet wounds on D-Day and decades of typecasting. His talent as a character actor was showcased on the '70's Star Trek animated series, for which he did most of the incidental voices.
I met him at a convention in San Francisco in the '80's, found him a complete gentleman for the 30 seconds I talked with him, and got this autograph.
