Trek Untold Episode 46: Tom Morga, Star Trek Stuntman from 1979-2005
Stunt performers are some of the most fascinating people in Hollywood to listen to, and our guest on this episode is no exception to the rule. Tom Morga first appeared in 1979 as a double for Leonard Nimoy in “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” and worked in nearly all of the TOS movies. From there, he joined the crew of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” as a stunt performer and double, as well as assistant stunt coordinator alongside Dennis Madalone.
Tom worked on TNG, DS9, VOY, Enterprise, and the Nemesis film. He is the “most seen stunt performer” in all of Star Trek, playing nearly every alien you can name, and has taken punches and done falls with the best of them! If you check his Memory Alpha page, it literally says “Too many to list”!
In addition to Trek, we also discuss some of his other work in stunts on a resume with over 100 productions, including his time as Harold Ramis’ stunt double in “Ghostbusters,” working with Jackie Chan in his first feature film in the US, Gene Lebell and Rita Egleston stories, being part of an award-winning fight scene in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” and working on the Academy Award-winning film “The Artist” from 2011, and much more.
