Malachi Throne reported dead
The characters played by Malachi Throne sometimes seemed world-weary…as if they wished you would just knock off all that nonsense and get back to work (but knew there was no way you were going to do that).
Fortunately for geeks, Throne appeared in many works which some might consider to be just that kind of nonsense.
Most people probably got to know the character actor as Noah Bain on the Robert Wagner series, It Takes a Thief, but Throne had an incredibly geek-friendly résumé:
- The Outer Limits (Cold Hands, Warm Heart)
- The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
- Batman (the Adam West series) as False Face
- I Spy
- Lost in Space
- The Wild Wild West
- The Time Tunnel
- Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
- Mission Impossible
- Land of the Giants
- Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp
- Superman (the TV version of the musical)
- The Six Million Dollar Man
- The Krofft Supershow
- Electra Woman and Dyna Girl
- Ark II
- Project U.F.O.
- Star Trek: The Original Series (Commodore Mendez in The Menagerie, and the voice of The Keeper in The Cage)
- Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light (narrator)
- Star Trek: The Next Generation (Senator Pardek)
- Raven (the ninja series with Jeffrey Meek)
- Animaniacs (God)
- Babylon 5 (Centauri Prime Minister)
- The New Batman Adventures
- Batman Beyond
- Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II (Korogh)
- Avatar: The Last Airbender
- Gothic 3 (videogame)
- Green Lantern: First Flight (Ranakar)
Goodbye, Malachi Throne…the world is a little less dignified without you.
