alan-marcusVeteran stuntman and actor Alan Marcus passed away suddenly on January 9. Marcus appeared in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

He played Yeoman Samno, who was part of the conspiracy to sabotage the Federation-Klingon peace talks. Samno and fellow conspirator Burke killed several Klingons, among them Chancellor Gorkon, before the duplicitous Lt. Valeris murdered both of them to keep the conspiracy under wraps.

Marcus’ friends and fellow stuntmen/actors, B.J. Davis and Kane Hodder confirmed the news of his passing.

  • The Secret World of Alex Mack
  • Maximum Security
  • Sidekicks

  • Rambo III
  • Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday
  • Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood
