Gary Graham, a Star Trek hero, died at the age of 73, his ex-wife confirmed.
Susan Lavelle paid tribute to the actor, who also participated in Alien Nation, but did not reveal the cause of his death. She wrote: “It is with extreme regret that I inform you that Gary Graham, my ex-husband, amazing actor, and father of our lovely only child, Haylee Graham, died tonight.
“We are completely devastated especially our daughter Haley. His wife, Becky was by his side.”
She went on: “I met Gary when I was just 20 years old and he was one half of the star duo on the tv series, Alien Nation. But he had already been in movies like All The Right Moves with Tom Cruise. Of course, Gary has many more credits.
The Long Beach-born actor was also a keen musician, playing in bands like The Sons of Kirk and The Gary Graham Garage Band in his younger years. Tributes have been pouring in for him online, with one X user writing: “Sadly, Gary Graham has passed away. He played a variety of roles in Star Trek most notably the recurring role of Soval, the Vulcan ambassador to Earth in Star Trek: Enterprise.”
Someone else posted: “So sad to hear of the passing of Gary Graham. I was fortunate enough to spend some time with him in London, and I also sang with his band a few times. My condolences go out to his family.”
