I'm aghast to learn that long-time genre favorite Gary Graham has passed, apparently from a heart attack.
To me, Graham always seemed like this blue-collar fellow with an amazing talent to craft interesting characters and thus found his way into the world of the entertainment business. Initially coming onto the scene in small roles, it didn't take long for those in charge to recognize that he was capable of much, much more; and he started receiving offers requiring far more screen time, deservedly so. While he may have trafficked a bit outside the worlds of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror, I think it's safe to say that he definitely had a home inside the realms of the Fantastic; and fans embraced whatever work the Thespian was able to send our way.
Just take a gander at his resume, and you'll see what I mean. TV's The Incredible Hulk, 1989's Robot Jox, TV's Alien Nation, a handful of episodes as part of TV's M.A.N.T.I.S. superhero series, and -- of course -- Star Trek: Enterprise are just a small part of the legacy his career leaves for us to enjoy ... and here's hoping folks do continue to sing the man's praises well into the years ahead.
Our warmest thoughts and prayers are extended to the family, friends, and fans of Gary Graham.
May he rest in peace.
