About Tanya Roberts:
Tanya Roberts is an American actress best known for her role in as Julie Rogers on the fifth and final season of Charlie's Angels (1980-1981) and as Midge Pinciotti on That '70s Show (1998-2001).

She later headlined the films: The Beastmaster, A View to a Kill, and Sheena. Roberts was groomed as a Hollywood sex symbol during the early 1980s.


Roberts' began her career as a model in TV ads for Ultra Brite, Clairol and Cool Ray sunglasses. She played serious roles in the Off-Broadway productions, Picnic and Antigone. She also supported herself as an Arthur Murray dance instructor. Her film debut was the 1975 thriller, Forced Entry. This was followed in 1976 by the comedy, The Yum-Yum Girls.

In 1977, as her husband was securing his own screenwriting career, the couple moved to Hollywood. The following year, Roberts participated in the drama, Fingers. Roles in the 1979 cult-movie, Tourist Trap, Racket and California Dreaming followed.

Roberts was featured in several television pilots that were never picked up: Zuma Beach (a 1978 comedy); Pleasure Cove (1979); and Waikiki (1980).

In 1980, Roberts was chosen among 2,000 candidates to replace Shelley Hack in the television series, Charlie's Angels (in what would be the last season of the series). She was featured on the February 9, 1981 cover of People magazine and afterward was offered more ambitious projects.

In 1982, Roberts played Kiri in The Beastmaster. She was featured in a nude pictorial in Playboy to help promote the movie, appearing on that issue's October 1982 cover.

In 1983, Roberts filmed the Italian-made, and little-known adventure, Paladini-storia d'armi e d'amori ("Paladins—the story of love and arms"; also released as Hearts and Armour), based on the medieval novel, "Orlando Furioso". Actor Ronn Moss, of The Bold and the Beautiful, co-starred.

She played the role of Velda, a buxom secretary to private detective, Mike Hammer, in the television movie, Murder Me, Murder You. The two-part pilot spawned the syndicated television series, Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer. Roberts declined to continue the role in the Mike Hammer series so she could work on her next project, Sheena: Queen of the Jungle. The 1984 film was based on a character adapted from a Will Eisner comic book. Dressed in scantily clad costumes, Sheena introduced a new blonde hairstyle that Roberts would keep for the rest of her career. The movie was a box office and critical disaster, garnering her a nomination for "Worst Actress" at the Razzie Awards.

Her subsequent appearance as Bond girl, Stacey Sutton, in A View to a Kill (1985), provided her a number of scenes with Roger Moore's James Bond, playing an articulate and well-educated geologist. However, she once again found herself nominated by critics for a Razzie. Roberts career took a downturn. Later films in the decade included Body Slam (1987), an action movie set in the professional wrestling world; and Purgatory (1988), a movie about a woman wrongfully imprisoned in Africa.

In 1991, Roberts starred in the erotic thriller, Inner Sanctum, alongside Margaux Hemingway. In 1992, she played Kay Egan in Sins of Desire.

Roberts appeared on the cable TV series, Hot Line (1994), and in the video game, The Pandora Directive, in 1996.

About Julian Glover:
Julian Glover is best known for such roles as General Maximilian Veers in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, the Bond villain Aristotle Kristatos in For Your Eyes Only (1981), and Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989).

In the early 1950s, he appeared in several shows at Unity Theatre, London. During the 1960s and 1970s, Glover frequently appeared in British television shows, including The Avengers, Doctor Who, The Saint, Strange Report and Blake's 7.

Julian Glover also appeared in 1967's Quatermass and the Pit, a Hammer Films adaptation of Nigel Kneale's 1950s BBC television original, in which he portrayed Quatermass' nemesis, Colonel Breen, a military man, initially sceptical of the ancient origin of an archaeologically excavated extraterrestrial spacecraft, who is later ironically in thrall to the murderous energy released from the craft. In 1979, he appeared as the villain, Scaroth, last of the Jagaroth, in the Doctor Who story City of Death, one of the most popular serials in the original run. He later recorded DVD commentaries for recently rediscovered The Crusade episode "The Wheel of Fortune" (from the Lost in Time (Doctor Who) DVD set) and City of Death.

Glover also appeared opposite Roger Moore in the episode of The Saint titled "Invitation to Danger."

He made some of his most notable appearances during the 1980s as the Imperial General Maximilian Veers in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), the ruthless Greek villain Aris Kristatos in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only, and the deceptive American Nazi Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). During the 1980s, he played the leading role in the BBC television drama series, By the Sword Divided.

He voiced the giant spider Aragog in the 2002 film version of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Glover has been associated with the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf since the 1980s, delivering various forms of staged interpretation. Taking the role of an Anglo-Saxon gleeman or traveller poet he delivers an abridged version of the tale whilst stood around a mead hall hearth. This powerful 11th century Old English text, set in the dark age Germanic world of the Geats, examines Anglo-Saxon concepts of honour and comitatus. The performance is interspersed with Glover rendering selected passages in the original Old English. This adaptation has been shown in documentaries on both the English Language and Anglo-Saxon England. Most recently, it was shown in Michael Wood's documentary 'Beowulf', broadcast during the BBC Poetry Season on BBC Four and BBC Two in 2009.

He recently played the role of Mr. Brownlow in the West End revival of the musical Oliver! at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

Glover plays a 101-year-old Polish veteran RAF pilot in the short film "Battle for Britain" (2010).

Since 2011 he portrays the character of Grand Maester Pycelle in HBO's Game of Thrones, the TV adaptation of the first volume of George R.R. Martin's fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire.

About David Hedison:
David Hedison is an Armenian-American film, television, and stage actor. He was billed as Al Hedison in his early film work. In 1959, when he was cast in the role of Victor Sebastian in the short-lived espionage television series Five Fingers, NBC insisted that he change his name. It was proposed that he use his middle name and he has been known as David Hedison ever since.

After his role in A Month in the Country, Hedison signed a film contract with 20th Century-Fox. His first movie with them was the classic war film The Enemy Below, which also starred Robert Mitchum. He followed that up with the 1958 horror classic The Fly. Other films in which he appeared include The Son of Robin Hood (1958), Marines, Let's Go! (1961), The Lost World (1960), The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), North Sea Hijack (1979) and The Naked Face (1984). Hedison was the first actor to play James Bond's ally Felix Leiter in more than one film. He played the character in Live and Let Die (1973) and Licence to Kill (1989).

Much of Hedison's acting career has been on television. In 1961, he appeared with Geraldine Brooks (1925–1977) in an episode of ABC's Bus Stop with Marilyn Maxwell, for which Brooks was nominated for an Emmy Award. He was cast as a counter espionage agent who traveled the world as a Hollywood talent agent in the 16-episode series Five Fingers. He followed that up with a starring role as Captain Lee Crane in the ABC television version of Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea with Richard Basehart. The show ran for four years. He also had a semi-regular role on ABC's The Colbys.

In 1990, he was the series host for Phenomenal World. He appeared in the television movie A.D. as well as The Saint Family, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, The Bob Newhart Show, Charlie's Angels, The A-Team, Knight Rider, and Wonder Woman, among many others. He played Spencer Harrison on the American soap opera Another World from 1991 to 1996. He followed that up in 2004 with a role on The Young and the Restless as Arthur Hendricks. His most recent role was in 2005's The Reality Trap. Also appeared in the 2001 movie "Mach 2". In 2010 he fell victim in prankster Kayvan Novak's Facejacker.

In 1970, she moved to Italy where she began acting in Italian films after growing tired of being typecast and unable to get starring roles in Hollywood. In Italy, she mostly appeared in giallo, poliziottesco and commedia erotica all'italiana films.
