Trek Untold Episode 59: Richard Riehle talks Star Trek TNG, VOY & ENT

Richard Riehle talks Star Trek TNG, VOY & ENT

Richard Riehle is a character actor whose face you have seen on stage, television and film since the 1970’s, with a grand total of 400 on-screen credits – a number that continues to rise every year! You may remember him as Batai from the Star Trek TNG classic “The Inner Light”, as Seamus from “Fair Haven” and “Spirit Folk” on Star Trek Voyager, and as Dr. Lucas in the Augment arc from Star Trek Enterprise, “Cold Station 12” and “The Augments”.

We spend some time discussing working with Patrick Stewart in one of the most beloved episodes of TNG and why his signature mustache was nowhere to be seen, memories of Robert Duncan McNeill, Ian Abercrombie, Fintan McKeown, and more from his time in the holographic Irish village of Fair Haven, and being beat up by Brent Spiner (in the show, of course). Plus, working with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci in “Casino,” Harrison Ford in “The Fugitive,” Scott Bakula on “Quantum Leap,” memories of Angela Lansbury, “Office Space,” “Grounded for Life,” “The Golden Girls,” “Free Willy,” “The Legend of Korra” and much more from this very prolific performer!
