Happy birthday to Michael Dorn, born December 9, 1952.
Michael Dorn is an actor, director, producer, and writer best known for his portrayal of Worf on Star Trek: The Next Generation, on Deep Space Nine, and in four Star Trek films. He also portrayed Worf’s namesake, Colonel Worf, in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
Dorn first appeared in Rocky (1976) as Apollo Creed‘s bodyguard, though he was not credited. He also appeared as a guest on the television show W.E.B. in 1978. The producer was impressed with his work, so he introduced Dorn to an agent who then introduced him to acting teacher Charles Conrad to study acting for six months. He then landed a regular role on the television series CHiPs.
Dorn has appeared on-screen in more Star Trek episodes and movies as the same character than anyone else: he appeared in 175 episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation(missing only the episodes “Code of Honor“, “Haven“, and “Shades of Gray“), 102 episodes of Deep Space Nine and four Star Trek movies, bringing his total to 281 appearances as Worf. Dorn is also one of six actors to lend his voice to Star Trek: Captain’s Chair, reprising his role of Lieutenant Commander Worf.
Dorn has appeared as Worf on Webster and Family Guy, the latter along with fellow Star Trek: The Next Generation stars. He had a recurring role on the television series Castle, playing the therapist of NYPD police detective Kate Beckett.
He also plays the role of General Thain in the “Castlevania: Hymn of Blood” web series.
