Today, December 9th, is the birthday for the man who appeared in more Star Trek than any other actor. Michael Dorn, who played Worf on TNG and DS9, turns 59 today. So we here at TrekMovie.com wish him a big happy birthday.
Happy Birthday, Michael Dorn
Michael Dorn’s Klingon-in-Starfleet Worf appeared in all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, plus four seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, along with the four TNG movies. Dorn even showed up in one of the TOS movies too (Star Trek VI), playing one of Worf’s ancestors.
This video shows how Dorn’s Worf is one of the most quotable characters in the Star Trek franchise:
In the last decade, Dorn has kept very busy, primarily doing voice work for animated video games and animated TV series. Dorn is also appearing in a recurring role as a psychiatrist on the current season of the hit ABC show Castle (see clip below…via Hulu…sorry non-USA people).
