Trek Untold Episode 13: Garth Pillsbury
At 82 years old, today's guest on “Trek Untold” proves that age is just a number as long as you keep learning and growing. A classically trained actor, Garth Pillsbury, appeared in two episodes of the original Star Trek series, “Mirror, Mirror” and “The Cloud Minders.” Beyond Trek, Pillsbury went on to appear in cult hits and exploitation films, eventually discovering photography and cinematography, which put him down new career paths.
We discuss why William Shatner didn't want him “punching” him during a scene, working on “Beyond The Valley of The Dolls” with Russ Meyer and Roger Ebert, fixing up Marlon Brando's house, hanging out with Robert Mitchum at a party, appearing in one of Kevin Costner's earliest movies as a lead in “Stacy's Knights,” becoming a professional photographer with pics in Playboy and Penthouse, his advice to aspiring actors, and more.
