The actor who played Klingon Leader and Diploma, Kang through three different Star Trek shows died last Wednesday. Michael Asnsara, a Syrian born actor who moved to the United States at age 2, started attending college in Los Angeles to become a doctor before finding his passion. He starred as Cochise in 'Broken Arrow' from 1956-1958, and was once married to 'I Dream of Jeannie" star Barbara Eden.
Ansara had an illustrious career as a character actor on the small and silver screens. He leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Beverly. Us Trekkies, will remember him always as Kang, the Klingon Captain who worked with Kirk to avoid violence in 'Day of the Dove'.
