Biography

Born: December 9, 1952 in Luling, Texas.

A longtime "Star Trek" fan, Michael Dorn plays Lieutenant Worf, a Klingon graduate of the Starfleet Academy. "Playing Worf has been an incredible opportunity for me as an actor. The challenge has been having to overcome the make-up and physical barriers of this role, to develop a strong and forthright character," Michael says.

During the sixth season, Michael guest-starred opposite Telma Hopkins and Cindy Williams in ABC's "Getting By." After completing production on the series' fourth season, Michael donned yet another Klingon head, that of Lt. Worf's grandfather in the feature film release "Star Trek VI." In doing so, Michael became the first "Next Generation" cast member to work with the cast of the original series in a "Star Trek" feature.

Michael has also guest-starred on several major series, most notably "Hotel," "Knots Landing" and "Falcon Crest." He has had recurring roles on "Days of Our Lives" and "Capitol." His feature film credits include 'Demon Seed," the original "Rocky," and "Jagged Edge."

Born in Luling, Texas, and raised in Pasadena, California, Michael performed in a rock band during high school and college. His first appearance on television was as a guest star on the series "W.E.B.," a show based on the hit film "Network." Impressed with Michael's work, the producer of the show introduced him to an agent and Michael began studying with Charles Conrad. Six months later, Michael landed a job in the popular series "CHiPs," where he spent three years as a regular cast member.

During the show's first season hiatus, Michael pursued a longtime dream: He took flying lessons and earned his pilot's license. Since then, Michael has flown with the Blue Angels and participated in the flight maneuvers of an F-16 with some of the nation's Top Guns. Michael currently owns his own jet.

Dorn: on his favorite episodes...``My two favorite episodes are The Drumhead, it was a goodcourtroom drama, and Firstborn, because in it I was able to doeverything I ever wanted to as Worf. The episode has drama, dangerand sensitivity.''

In addition to Amanda & the Alien, Dorn has also recently starred in "Timemaster," a feature for SGE, and "Menno's Mind," also for Jon Kroll. He is also the new host of the Discovery Channel's popular series "World of Wonder."

His acting and voice-over work leave little leisure time, but what he has, he spends in his twin-engine military training jet, a T-33 he flies to air shows around the country and uses as the ultimate private getaway.
