From Ethan Rayne in Buffy the Vampire Slayer to General Sarris in Galaxy Quest, Robin Sachs was a very talented character actor who worked in a wide range of genres during a career that spanned forty years. His early career was in Britain, where he appeared on a number of well known shows, including Brideshead Revisited, Upstairs Downstairs, and Rumpole of the Bailey.
He then relocated to the U.S. where he continued his career. Sachs was one of those actors who did a bit of everything, particularly science fiction, appearing in Babylon 5, Star Trek: Voyager, and Torchwood: Miracle Day among other things. He also appeared in mainstream dramas, including Nash Bridges, Murder She Wrote, and NCIS, which was his last television appearance last year.
