Trek Untold-Episode 120: Roderick Garr
Roderick Garr: Sitcoms to Spike Lee to Star Trek
Roderick Garr played Regana Tosh on the fourth season DS9 episode “Hippocratic Oath,” but his career goes far beyond his time on that space station.
Growing up in Buffalo, NY, Roderick tells us about his encounter as a child with Sammy Davis Jr. that changed the course of his life, what he learned during his time at Howard University and from his first professional tv role, the greatest lesson he learned from the great Richard Gant, working with the Mowry family on “Sister, Sister” and “Smart Guy,” Queen Latifah on “Living Single,” working on sets with Spike Lee, and more!
From there, it's onto Trek talk as we learn about the audition and makeup process for Regana Tosh, hanging out with Michael Westmore in his studio, working with Armin Shimerman, Michael Dorn, and Rene Auberjonois, and how Kinko's fits into his DS9 role in a most unique way!
