06-18 Happy birthday to Linda Thorson, Born: June 18, 1947.
Linda Thorson, born as Linda Robinson, is the actress who played Gul Ocett in the Star Trek: The Next Generation sixth season episode “The Chase” in 1993.
Thorson is perhaps best known for playing Tara King on the UK adventure program The Avengers. She succeeded Diana Rigg as Patrick Macnee’s female co-star and appeared on the series between 1967 and 1969, later reprising the role alongside Macnee for a French television commercial in the 1970s. This commercial led to the commissioning of a revival series, The New Avengers, though Thorson was not involved in the new series.
Thorson attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (aka RADA) in London, England. In 2000, she received a special BAFTA (British TV award) for her role in the Avengers along with other leading actresses in the series.
