Reggie Nalder on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA ("Saga of a Star World")


The great Reggie Nalder (1907 - 1991) has one line of dialogue in the Battlestar Galactica pilot movie ("Saga of a Star World").  In the movie version that was shown theatrically and released on both VHS, Laserdisc, DVD and Blu-Ray, his line "Are you going to play, sir?" has been Looped (dubbed) by an unknown American actor.  In the TV version of the film - available on DVD and Blu-Ray - his line has (thankfully!) NOT been dubbed and you can hear his glorious Austrian accent unaltered.  Nalder is famous for being the first actor to play an Andorian on Star Trek ("Journey to Babel") and he also played one of the most famous vampires of all time - Kurt Barlow in the mini-series 'Salem's Lot (1979).
