Claudia Christian

Babylon 5, Relic Hunter, NYPD Blue, Claudia's very versatile ...

 

Claudia Christian is most famous to Cult TV appreciators as Commander Susan Ivanova in Babylon 5.

An actress, author, musician, singer and most recently a director ("Heartbreak Cafe"), she continues to expand her horizons. She's recently been seen on E4's Freaks and Geeks as 'Gloria Haverchuck', and voiced 'Helga Sinclair' in the animated smash hit movie Atlantis. She's also featured in recent episodes of Relic Hunter and NYPD Blue. Claudia has also been a series regular in BERRENGERS (as 'Melody Hughes'), and BLACKE'S MAGIC (as 'Laurie'). She has guest-starred on a huge selection of TV series, including "Hunter", "The A Team", "Dallas", "T J Hooker", "Falcon Crest", "Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer", "Riptide", "Jake and The Fatman", "It's Garry Shandling's Show", "Quantum Leap", "Matlock", "Murder, She Wrote", "L. A. Law", "Dark Justice", "Space Rangers", "Columbo", "Kelly Kelly", "Webster", "The Highwayman", "Total Security" and "Highlander".

Big screen roles include "Hexed", "Maniac Cop 2", "The Hidden", "Mad About You", "A Gnome Named Gnorm", "Never on Tuesday", "Snide and Prejudice", "Love and Sex", "True Rights", "Substiture 3", "Running Home", "LAncelot Guardian of Time", "Thick & Thin", "Strays", "The Dark Backward", "The Haunting of Hell House", and the soon to be released "Half Past Dead".

One of Claudia's many passions is music. She wrote both the lyrics and the music for her first CD, "Taboo", which she co-produced with Michael Jay (of Celine Dion fame). She has produced and sings on two additional albums, "Claudia Squared" and the jazz and blues orientated "Trying to Forget". Her long awaited fourth CD, "Once Upon a Time", has her working again with her "Babylon 5" co-star Bill Mumy, and recent winners of the John Lennon Song writing award, Share and Bam Ross. Always expanding her musical horizons, she recently recorded the soundtrack for the Sci-Fi Musical "Area 51".

As an author, Claudia has written a series of children's books entitled "The Misadventures of Miss Emma Bradford".

Always one to explore new technology, Claudia stars in the Internet series "Love Bytes" (which just been picked up by ilive.com), a sit-com about a dating service that actually gets viewers dates. Her voice can also be heard as the character "DeWinter" in Westwood Studio's live-action internet on line game entitled "Earth and Beyond", and she's the lead voice in "The Summoner 2" for PlayStation. Claudia narrated the five part mini series for VH-1 titled "Below the Waist: Men, Women and Music", and was hand-picked by Jaguar as the voice to represent their range of cars. She recently starred in the offbeat comedy Starhyke.

Brian Downey

Star man from Lexx ...

 

Brian was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. Selected theatre credits include the role of Bobby in 'Cheatin Hearts,' Theseus in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream,' and Fleet in the Trinity Festival's 'Black Stick Tales.'

Brian plays Stanley Tweedle, bumbling nebbish and former revolutionary, in the dark science fiction comedy series Lexx. Stanley was an utterly unexceptional low-grade security guard in the Divine Order, the 20,000-planet empire ruled by the malevolent Divine Shadow.

However, he had a history of covert resistance, but his involvement with the rebellion was very counterproductive, eventually putting the greatest weapon ever created, the Lexx, into a galactic tyrant's hands.

Brian has also appeared as the recurring character Mister Dean in Chris Carter's Millennium, as Milo Grunbacher in The Beachcombers, plus CBC Television's long running Revue (1987-93), as well as co-starring in the award-winning Salter Street Production George's Island.

Brian also wrote and starred as Captain Joe, the First Wise Fisherman, Vincent, Good Lifer Number 2, Ron and the Third Logger in the Canadian Movie 'Joey' in 1982. Other films include 'Secret Nation,' 'Norman's Awesome Experience' (aka 'A Switch In Time'), 'John and the Missus,' 'Culture Shock' and 'The Adventures of Faustus Bidgood.'

Downey is also a talented musician, with skills at guitar (acoustic and electric), electric bass and harmonica, in both straight and blues styles.

Angus Lennie

From Crossroads to Monarch of the Glen ...

 

Angus Lennie was born in Glasgow, and is best remembered for playing chef Shughie McFee in the original Crossroads (first appearing onscreen in 1972 as a Travel Agent), although his career before and after that gig has been renowned.

An episode of The Saint (1963's 'The Fellow Traveller') saw him play MacTavish, and he can be seen in the Doctor Who story 'The Ice Warriors', playing Storr in 1967 (He would return to the series in 1975 for the Tom Baker story "Terror of the Zygons", playing Angus McRanald). In 1964 he featured in the series HMS Paradise as Able Seaman Murdoch.

He can be seen in the movies Tunes of Glory (an orderly room clerk alongside Sir John Mills and Alec Guinness), The Great Escape (Flying Officer Archibald 'The Mole' Ives alongside Steve McQueen), and 633 Squadron (playing Flying Officer 'Hoppy' Hopkinson). He even provided the voice for Hamish Great in One of Our Dinosaurs Is Missing as well as appearing in Oh What A Lovely War and The Zany Adventures of Robin Hood.

On television, he has appeared in Rumpole of the Bailey, Lovejoy, Game On, Hale and Pace, Hannay, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, Parahandy, Doom Castle, The Stanley Baxter Show, Dad, The Les Dennis Show, The Bobby Davro Show, Justice, Keeping Up Appearances, The Upper Hand and All Night Long. He played John MacColl in the 1978 mini-series of Kidnapped, and was Curtis in the 1980 BBC Shakespeare adaption of The Taming of the Shrew. He has also been seen in Monarch of the Glen.

In terms of theatre work he undertook Rep seasons at Bath, Birmingham, Dundee, Farnham, Westcliff and Surrey. Other stage highlights include Dear Brutus and A Midsummer Night's Dream at Nottingham Playhouse, a Far East and Gulf tour of Lloyd George Knew My Father, The Three Estates at the Edinburgh and Walsall Festivals, plus several pantomimes.

Angus left Crossroads in 1981, but he is still recognised all over the world from the role: a doorman at the Barclays Bank branch in Paris once greeted him with "Bonjour, Monsieur Shughie"!
