From the STARLOG MAGAZINE vaults: Journeyman TV actor Jared Martin died last week so, to mark his passing, here is a Starlog interview conducted to promote the first season of Paramount's low(ish) budget SF-horror hybrid (and late-night ITV schedule filler) WAR OF THE WORLDS.
Martin, who's other credits included gone-in-a-mo Seventies SFer FANTASTIC JOURNEY and a stint on DALLAS, was one of those samm-screen mainstays who never seemed to shine but had plenty of work. I've not seen him ina nything new for decades but I was still sad to note his passing.
apparently he retired from acting in the 90's.ReplyDelete
I must confess I've never seen more than a few episodes of WAR OF THE WORLDS but it was quite enjoyable.
War of the Worlds was a series with very variable quality across its two (quite different from each other) seasons, but Jared Martin's Harrison Blackwood was an engagingly quirky character.ReplyDelete
