Trek Untold Encore: Spencer Garrett

Spencer Garrett | Trek Untold Encore

This week it's an encore episode from June 2020 with Spencer Garrett

 When we talk about character actors, we are talking about the working backbone of the TV & film industry. Today, we are joined by the highly prolific Spencer Garrett, who holds over 200 acting credits to his name on a resume that continues to grow daily.

One of Spencer's first roles was his appearance on TNG in the episode “The Drumhead,” where he played Crewman Tarses in a memorable episode. We discuss acting with Patrick Stewart, Jean Simmons, being directed by Jonathan Frakes, wearing the pointy ears, and what was cut from the episode. He followed that up years later as a Starfleet hologram named Weiss in the VOY two-parter “Flesh & Blood,” where we chat about working with Robert Picardo and Jeffrey Yagher, the surreal set filled with tons of aliens, and how sick he became from filming the opening scene of that episode.

Plus, growing up in a Hollywood house as a third-generation actor, his family connection to Star Trek, more Angela Lansbury stories, working with Robert Duvall, being impaled by a Christmas tree on “Supernatural,” sharing the screen with Brad Pitt & Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” becoming Sean Hannity in “Bombshell,” the fun pandemic project Spencer and his actor friends are working on during their quarantine lockdown, and more!
