Happy birthday Robert Brown, born November 17, 1926.
Robin Adair MacKenzie Brown, known as Robert Brown, is an actor who has made one appearance on Star Trek playing both Lazarus-A and Lazarus-B in the episode "The Alternative Factor". He was hired as a last-minute replacement for actor John Drew Barrymore, who had been cast in the role but didn't show up on the first day of shooting. Coincidentally, his first filming day on the episode was his 40th birthday.
Before Star Trek, Brown shot a pilot with William Shatner about a Swede and an Irishman who emigrate to America. Brown played the Irishman. It aired in 1963 as an episode of The Dick Powell Theater entitled "Colossus". He went on to star in the TV series Here Come the Brides from 1968 through 1970.
Ishmael, a popular 1985 Star Trek novel by Barbara Hambly, featured a crossover with Here Come the Brides.
Brown previously appeared in episodes of Wagon Train, Perry Mason, and Bonanza.
Brown's only notable feature film credit is the Roger Corman horror movie Tower of London, released in 1962.
