You’ve seen his face in what sometimes seemed like every third episode of Babylon 5, and he was also the big bad in Galaxy Quest. (Minor bit of trivia: he was also the son of actor Leonard Sachs, who played Borusa in the Doctor Who story Arc Of Infinity.)
Bruce Boxleitner and Armin Shimerman both tweeted today that Robin Sachs has passed away. He’s got quite the resume just looking through the episode guides:
Other shows he’s been in that don’t have guides here: Buffy (as Ethan Rayne), Alias, Castle, F/X, NCIS, to name just a few. He’d also done a lot of voice work for games and animation in recent years: Tales Of The Old Republic, Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age: Origins, again, just to name a few.
How did Armin Shimerman know him? Unless it was from Buffy?
Wasn’t it actually him in the suit for Galaxyquest? I haven’t watched the extras in a while, but I thought they actually put him in the costume for the role, which was extremely heavy. Still, great voice for that part. A very distinctive, classy voice. I’m amazed he didn’t make his living just doing audiobooks.
