Back in the ’90s, before NCIS, the show JAG was our number one military drama on TV. We tuned in every week for ten whole years (1995 to 2005)! to watch the dramatic relationship between Harm and Mac play out until the unexpected finale. If you’ve been missing the amazing and diverse cast of the show as much as I have, we’ve got you covered for the latest news on your favorite JAG characters. Well, guys, what are you up to now?
How can we forget the funny and always entertaining Chuck Carrington who played the Yeoman of Admiral Chegwidden – Jason Tiner, and kept us laughing for over 100 episodes until Tiner eventually got accepted to OCS.
The actor has since moved on to have a fairly lackluster writing and acting career. You can see his work in the recently released Cowboy Drifter action movie or as Renny Jacobsen in the historic thriller “The List”.
The beautiful and talented Karri Turner first appeared in season 2 as Lieutenant Harriet Sims and stayed with us all the way to season 10. Sims fell in love with and married Bud Roberts (much to her mother’s dismay) in the third season of the show.
Karri Turner has since appeared in multiple high-profile TV shows such as Heroes, Caroline in the City, The X-Files and South Park. She also works with various patriotic organizations, including the Nation Guard, the American Freedom Foundation and has spent five tours with Stars for Stripes.
David James Elliot
Harmon 'Harm' Rabb Jr. is the lead character in JAG. In the final episode, Harm and Mac decided to get married - but were both promoted to different parts of the country. The show ends with a coin toss over which one would retire from the service. Oops, did I forget to mention some possible spoilers?
Nowadays, actor David Elliott is married to actress Nanci Chambers (who also appeared in JAG as the ambitious Lt. Loren Singer) and lives in his 8,000-square-foot Italian villa-style home. His latest appearance was in the American biographical drama Trumbo starring Bryan Cranston.
Patrick was the fan-favorite Captain Bud "Big Bud" J. Roberts, a highly respected trial lawyer in JAG. He is still considered one of the best on the show. Though not a particularly physical person, he always knew how to defend himself when the situation demanded it. Roberts married Ensign Harriet Sims in 1998 and they had five children together.
Patrick is still a very active American actor, television producer, and television writer, and recently voiced cartoons such as Spider-Man: The Animated Series, Godzilla: The Series and others.
Commander Sturgis was arguably the most goodie-goodie character on the entire show, always making sure to follow the rules to the letter, both in the courtroom as well as during his investigations. Sturgis briefly dated singer Varese Chestnut, although, sadly, that romance was short-lived.
Today Scott Lawrence is most recognized for his many voice-over roles as Darth Vader from the Star Wars franchise, both in video-games and movies. He also played in the box-office hit Avatar and 2010’s The Social Network.
Kevin Fry was the actor who played Commander Morton. Actually, he was also the actor who played ‘Lifeboat Petty Officer’ and later the actor played ‘Corpsman’. This wasn’t a big problem for viewers as some of these characters only appeared four whole years from each other.
Fry’s career has grown a lot since his costume changes on Jag. since the show, he has landed parts in various action films such as Taken 3 with Liam Neeson, Sons of Anarchy, 300, Star Trek and American Horror Story. He usually plays one of the big tough bad guys.
Commander Amy Helfman is probably the character our mothers would relate to the most, and that’s why we love her. Commander Helfman presided as a judge in the JAG corps, and always did everything she could to balance the law with compassion and fairness. I know I still get a warm feeling whenever I think about her.
Jennifer Savidge has not been the most active actress in recent times, that’s why I am so happy to announce that you can finally see her fabulous style as Ruth Taylor in the first season of ABC critically acclaimed drama series, American Crime.
Bill Cobbs played Matthew Turner on JAG - a Chaplain in the United States Navy and also the father of Commander Sturgis Turner. He last appeared in Season 9, in the sweet episode “A Merry Little Christmas”.
After the show ended, Cobbs found himself in many interesting roles in both TV shows and Movies. The ones that stand out to us were his roles as Jack Rymer on The Tenant, Reginald in Night at the Museum and Master Tinker in Oz the Great and Powerful.
Sarah MacKenzie, also known as “Mac”, first appeared in season 2’s, episode 1, called “We the People”. She immediately became a fan-favorite and lead female on the show, all the way to its finale.
Ah, the Bell’s. Now that’s a family of actors. Catherine Bell has a long history with leading roles on long-running shows, from Denise Sherwood in the series Army Wives (2007 to 2013), to the role of Cassie Nightingale in The Good Witch films and television series which has been running from 2008 and up to, well, today.
Everyone loves Baby A.J. including us and the JAG team. There’s nothing like seeing a young kid in uniform that acts in a more proper way than most of the adults we know. Little kid Matthew Josten had since grown to become a fully-fledged and very handsome man
Equipped with his own Instagram that has 100,000 followers, and very promising acting and directing career that already includes fantastic fun-for-everyone entries such as Chicken Little, Meet the Robinsons and Rodney. His Instagram isn’t always as family-friendly as his films though.
Mary Page Keller
Acting since the early 1980’s, Mary Page Keller played Beth O’Neill (or Commander Beth O’Neill) on JAG. That was right at the height of her career but that did not mean slowing down for her. In fact, things have only gotten better! How could they not with an ageless face like that?
Mary got to act in many great TV shows up until JAG and the same can be said for her later work. It’s highly likely that you may have seen her more recently in Scandal, Chasing Life, Pretty Little Liars, Supernatural, and many, many more.
Lieutenant Commander Michael "Mic" Brumby was in love with Mac, but so was Harm. They even fought each other over her at one point! Mic eventually left for Australia when he realized Mac was in love with Harm. I guess he knew who won that battle as well...
Unfortunately, Trevor Joseph Goddard died in 2003 from a reported drug overdose, but not before establishing himself as a terrific actor. He played the iconic Kano in Mortal Kombat, and his first and only leading role in Hollywood Vampyr (2002) as the gothic vampire called "Blood".
Cynthia Sikes played Dr. Sidney Waldon, a former girlfriend of Rear Admiral A.J. Chegwidden on JAG. Cynthia is an American producer and actress mostly known for her acting role on the medical drama “St. Elsewhere” and producing the science-fiction masterpiece “Blade Runner 2049”.
Did you know that Cynthia’s late husband, Bud Yorkin, was the original producer of the Blade Runner movie? Bud and Cynthia decided to revive the Blade Runner franchise as producing partners. Unfortunately, Bud passed away due to health problems, and Cynthia did an amazing job honoring him by finishing Blade Runner 2049 with raving reviews.
On JAG, Corbin Bernsen played the tough but fair judge Captain Owen Sebring, who presided over the tribunal of an al-Qaeda leader who plotted the 9/11 attacks. Corbin's father is a film producer and his mother is a veteran soap opera actress, so it wasn’t a surprise when he decided to pick up the torch.
Corbin is still a very active actor today and recently played Anderson Schultz in the TV show “The Punisher”. He will also be appearing as American lawyer Harry Blackmun in the upcoming political legal drama film “Roe v. Wade”.
Lieutenant Commander Jordan Parker, M.D. was Harm’s love interest for an entire year. That relationship was cut short when Parker was tragically killed in season 6 by the mentally unstable wife of a marine soldier.
This talented Canadian born actress has a thin list of roles in films and shows. However, if you’re looking for a big dose of Susan, you can always binge the ABC’s American soap opera, One Life to Live, where she plays Dr. Marty Saybrooke. The actress has reprised her role many times throughout the years, from 1992 and up until 2011. Talk about commitment!
Dan Lauria debuted on Season 9 of JAG in the episode “Secret Agent Man” as Allen Blaisdell, a CIA officer. And just like everything else he does, he was brilliant.
This actor has been around since the 60’s and his acting resume reads like a who’s who of crime shows speckled with romantic roles and movies. Since his time on JAG, Lauria has performed not only screen roles but also in a number of Broadway shows. He may be known to some for his epic role as Jack Arnold in the American coming-of-age comedy-drama show, “The Wonder Years”.
Zuhair Haddad is one of those actors that play the small extra roles we never remember but are always important to keep the show going. He played Anwar Sahaj in the season 3 episode called “People v. Rabb”.
After playing this role, Zuhair Haddad went on to play other small roles in many films such as The Pursuit of Happyness, The Hangover Part III, The Scorpion King and more. Watch out for that big mustache in the corner of the screen next time you watch a blockbuster movie.
When the JAG team learned that terrorist Kabir Atef joined a Russian submariner and planned to shoot a missile at the U.S.S. Seahawk, our heroes had to act quickly to neutralize the threat, which meant the end for Kabir Atef on the show.
Today Francesco Quinn is best known for his breakthrough role in Platoon. Quinn was an avid motorcycle enthusiast and fluent in English, French, Spanish and Italian. His untimely death in 2011, at the age of 48 left us all in shock. His last role was a voice-over as Dino in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
The young and charming Midshipman Michael "Mikey" Roberts, was always fighting for his father and older brother, Bud’s approval. I’ll never forget the day Michael finally stood up for himself, confronted his brother and said, "My name is Mike, not Mikey." Serious chills!
Michael must have taken much inspiration for the role from his own father who just so happens to be one of the producers of JAG. While that role certainly left its mark on us, Michael has since mostly appeared in shows produced by his dad and occasional other films such as “Kush” and “Lords of the Underworld”.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
Do you remember Wally? A CIA technician on the JAG force? No worries, it was a small role. But that’s OK because you definitely remember him for huge roles such as John Winchester in the popular show “Supernatural”.
His most recent recognizable role was as the baseball-wielding antagonist, Negan, in the long-running zombie horror series “The Walking Dead”. If you’re looking for a more lighthearted role, look for Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Agent Harvey Russell in the family-friendly movie, “Rampage”, where he acted alongside non-other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as they fought a massive trio of ape, alligator, and wolf.
Once in every few episodes, we’d see Rif Hutton in his role as Lieutenant Commander Alan Mattoni. He was often working as opposing counsel to the JAG crew and was seen sitting next to LT Singer. I never liked his puffed-up attitude so I'm glad his appearances were fairly brief.
Rif Hutton the actor has appeared in many films and TV shows since JAG, and I'm ecstatic to say that he usually plays much nicer characters. He is perhaps best known for his recurring role as Dr. Ron Welch in the comedy-drama series Doogie Howser, M.D.
Rear Admiral Stiles Morris was the highest-ranking Judge at JAG Headquarters with over 16 years on the bench as of 1997. He was the judge who presided over the court-martial when Harm fired a machine gun at the courtroom ceiling. Yikes!
Though pushing 80 years of age, Harrison Page is still very much active and mostly enjoys playing small roles in various TV shows. His best role to this day, in my opinion, was that of Joshua Eldridge on Jean-Claude Van Damme’s famous box-office action hit Lionheart (1990).
Chas. Floyd Johnson
Chas. Floyd Johnson began his acting journey in the 1970’s and is known largely for his work on The Rockford Files. On JAG, Chas. began by playing Dr. Bruce Gasden.
But later he actually moved on to co-produced many of the show’s episodes. He eventually became the executive producer for NCIS. It appears producing was far more his calling than any acting gig ever was. Johnson also spends his time as an African-American activist and has since won three Emmy Awards.
The hard-hitting Lieutenant Commander Tracy Manetti is probably the most diverse character on the show, coming from an Asian - Italian background it is not surprising that she is fluent in many languages, on show and off. Manetti was Harm's partner for seven episodes in season eight.
Tamlyn Tomita was born in Japan and started her singing and acting career a few years later in the United States. The actress appeared in various small film productions and has also played several recurring roles on major television series, including 24, Glee, Teen Wolf and How to Get Away with Murder.
Mac’s love interest during season 3, Dalton Lowne, was a charismatic lawyer who convinced Mac to resign from JAG and join his law firm. Their relationship quickly ended when Mac found out that Dalton used her private files for a military case. There was no point in waiting for a comeback since he was later shot and killed by an obsessive police officer. Ouch!
Larry Poindexter’s list of films and shows is truly legendary and spans an average of 4 roles a year for the last 27 years! Larry also sings and does the occasional commercial. Quite the triple threat.
Commander Caitlin Pike, otherwise known as “Kate”, was Harm’s first partner in the show. The two had a fling but nothing got too serious so they decided to break it off. In the story, Caitlin got reassigned to another station, but this actually happened because the real actress decided to leave the show to star in The Pretender.
Andrea Parker is a former ballet dancer but is known mostly for her TV roles on the ER, The Pretender, Desperate Housewives, and Pretty Little Liars. She also supports charities related to the research of various disabilities such as Parkinson's and autism.
There’s nothing like a kid actor who ends up making it as a big-time, successful adult actor. Such is the case with Will Rothhaar, who starred in the role Josh Pen, the son of Annie Pendry and deceased Navy Lieutenant Lucas Pendry.
Will is the son of Michael and Nancy Rothhaar, both of whom are playwrights, actors, and directors. Rothhaar's performances include so many appearances on so many different crimes shows that it’s hard to keep track. His biggest movie role, for now, remains the leading role of Watts Davies in Kart Racer.
Matt Sigloch played Master Sergeant Tom Androvich, a Master Sergeant of the United Marine Corps, and used his own real-life experience as a Marine to make the show as convincing as possible. He also got to help the show behind-the-scenes as a technical adviser, drawing on his experience as a real-life badass.
Sigloch retired after 22 years of active duty service as a Master Sergeant. Since then he’s built a himself an acting career and even became a member of the Screen Actors Guild. He’s still acting, doing stunt work and even runs his own company called Sigloch Military-Tactical which helps films and shows with military-related themes.
On JAG, Commander Stefan Stefanopoulos was a Commander in the United States Navy, played by the talented Tony Denison. Now that’s a name that’s hard to forget.
Denison has since appeared in many other crime dramas including the roles of Aldo Burrows on Prison Break and Andy Flynn on The Closer and Major Crimes. He even received a Prism Award by the Entertainment Industry Council for Outstanding Performance in a Drama Series and five SAG nominations for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
Rex Linn made his JAG debut in the season’s very first episode 'Shadow', playing the submarine skipper. He was later promoted by the production the play the role of Lt. Mark ‘Falcon’ Sokol.
He has since played in many other TV shows, including Lethal Weapon (as Nathan Riggs), Better Call Saul (as Kevin Wachtell) and most recently as Principal Petersen on Young Sheldon. Rex was also a celebrity award presenter at the National Association of Police Organizations in Washington DC.
Lieutenant Gregory Vukovic was that brat kid in school that kept annoying both the teachers and the students. We can’t say we didn’t enjoy his antics, but sadly for Vukovic, his childish behavior ended up stopping him from getting promoted along with Harm and Mac at the end of the show.
A quick glance at Chris Beetem’s Instagram page shows just how dedicated he is to his art. Since JAG, Beetem has gone on to act and direct in some very big movies, we recommend checking out Emelie, Black Hawk Down and Inside Amy Schumer.
Ned Vaughn played a minor role in JAG as Lt. Carl Barrett. His real life is far more interesting. Ned served as vice president of the Screen Actors Guild prior to becoming the founding executive vice president of SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists).
Ned has led quite an interesting life since the show JAG. His achievements vary from playing roles on multiple political shows, crime shows, and films, to running as a Republican candidate for California's 66th State Assembly district. In his latest movie, he played Wilbur Hobby on “The Best of Enemies”.
The most memorable moment of Lieutenant Alfred Aldridge’s short appearance in JAG was probably that time Singer used him as a date. The role was rather short-lived, but the actor has since played in some longer roles.
After his time on JAG, Tannen continued on to a role on NCIS. Recently, he has played Marcus on New Girl, Jim on Silicon Valley and has made appearances in a few more of our favorite shows. He is yet to appear in next year’s Nocturne, now still in post-production stages.
Carter, or in the show - Sergei Zhukov, was a Russian military Sergeant who was alleged to be Harm’s half-brother. During his short stay in the United States, he had an affair with LT Loren Singer and was initially a suspect in her death. He was eventually cleared of charges and returned to Russia. To that, we can only say, dasvidaniya!
Jade Carter, who’s actually from Canada, went on to play various parts in films such as NCIS, Solo: The Series, and the film Love or War. Carter lives life to the fullest and does his best to travel the world as much as possible.
Some roles just fit like a glove, that hand was Shashawnee Hall, and the glove was his role as FBI Agent Marvin Novack. Since his time on the JAG set, Hall has appeared in films such as A Nightmare on Elm Street, Bruce Almighty, and Evan Almighty.
He has also appeared on various TV series such as Castle, Switched at Birth, Life, Shark, Medium, and Without a Trace. Acting since the early 1980s, Shashawnee’s career is still going strong today. In fact, you can expect to see more of him in the very near future. Way to go buddy!
Gunnery Sergeant Victor Galindez was a Hispanic sheriff's deputy from New Mexico who joined JAG headquarters and eventually participated in the mission to hunt Bin Laden. He was played by the vastly handsome Randy Vasquez.
Vasquez is mostly known for playing Victor Galindez on JAG and Marcos on Acapulco H.E.A.T. He has since transitioned into being a director and even won Best Documentary for his film “The Thick Dark Fog”. Oh and definite applauds for going back to UCLA in 2009 and getting a bachelor's degree in American Indian Studies! Way to go Randy!
One of Tim Lounibos’s early roles was as Lt. Peter Yuen on JAG, But that was only for two episodes. I'm glad to say that his body of work has definitely expanded since. However, his new look does cause some typecasting as you can tell by his later roles.
Tim is still an active actor today and recently played in shows such as NCIS and Criminal Minds. He has also been running a business and supervising hundreds of employees, which may have caused his acting career to slow down a little. Thankfully, not to a full stop.
John Eric Bentley
Another JAG star is John Eric Bentley who we remember best for his role as Cayuga Weps on season 3. He too ties for the medal for most roles played on one show - 4 in total (along with John Prosky and Mark Costello).
Today Bentley’s body of work is far more impressive with roles on The Bold and the Beautiful, Resident Evil, Transformers, Independence Day and even appearances on Hannah Montanah. John also starred in various video-games such as Call of Duty and The Last of Us doing voice overs.
If there’s a character we truly love to hate, Commander Ted Lindsey takes the cake, big time. Teddy was often criticized for being incompetent and underqualified, and eventually decided to get JAG’s entire senior staff reassigned. His evil schemes failed and he was forced to resign, but not before killing Lieutenant Loren Singer and trying to frame Harm for the crime. I think it’s safe to say nobody likes Teddy.
W.K. Stratton stopped acting shortly after his role as Teddy, and I'm not sure I can blame him. Nevertheless, let's keep our fingers crossed for a hasty comeback.
Everyone remembers Captain Huddleston, played by Sam Hennings on JAG. The actor seems to have aged quite well over the past 20 years. He looks almost exactly the same as he did in the show!
In 2017, Hennings was cast in Hypnotized, playing an egotistical, sex-obsessed, Southern Governor. His latest project is the Netflix original film Juanita, about a woman who leaves her grown kids behind and hits the road in search of a fresh start.
Lieutenant, Junior Grade Megan "Meg" Austin was Harm’s second partner but unfortunately, her role was short-lived and lasted only for the first season, as Austin was replaced by Major Sarah MacKenzie.
Tracy was always a strong and independent woman. She recalls jumping into football games and asking the boys to never take it easy on her. Despite acting in many shows, she’s been MIA for the last decade. I recommend tuning in to some oldies such as CSI: Miami and Criminal Minds to watch her in action!
Cindy Ambuehl launched her career by playing Renee Peterson on JAG, where she played yet another love interest in Harm’s life (oh the drama!) Since then she had tried her best to keep up with her Hollywood career.
Recently, Ambuehl appeared in The Bold and the Beautiful on CBS. Besides her career as an actress, fashion designer, realtor and modal, there is one update regarding Cindy’s love life you don’t want to miss - this beauty is no longer on the market! Cindy married Don Diamont, a fellow actor, and they have twin sons.
Tied with John Prosky, Mark Costello also played 4 different roles on the show! He may have had only a small part in JAG as Commander Onclay, but we definitely missed his smile and charm through the rest of the series.
After JAG ended, Mark Costello secured roles in various shows including The West Wing, Criminal Minds, General Hospital and even some big-screen movie debuts. He last played Richard on the 2019 blockbuster, The Friend.
Michael Saad played the infamous and understandably loathed General Hasan Abdullah on JAG, a well-researched character who became the main villain throughout season 7.
As an actor and writer well known for his appearance on the show, Michael is also known for his roles on the films Bleacher Bums (1979), and Road to Red (2016). He also appeared as the prime minister on the show “24” and just for kicks - check him out doing comedy on a little show called “Seinfeld”.
Canadian born actress Nanci Chambers played Lieutenant Loren Singer, an overly ambitious woman who would do anything she could to advance her own career - even at the expense of others. Unfortunately for Singer, she ended up being thrown into a river and drowned. Her death served as the pilot for JAG’s spinoff series - NCIS.
In real life, Nanci Chambers married none other than actor David James Elliott himself (who played Harm in the show!). The lovely actor-parent duo have 2 beautiful children together named Stephanie and Wyatt and are highly involved environmental conservationists.
Another small role that seems to have skyrocketed an actor’s career is Lt. Dalton Jonas aka “Boomer”, played by the forever handsome, Canadian-American actor Dylan Neal.
Dylan is known for playing Dylan Shaw on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful and Detective Mike Celluci in the series Blood Ties. He eventually began a writing career in 2014 when he sold his TV show idea and began acting, writing and producing for it at the same time. Since 2018, Dylan remains in the Hallmark biz as a writer and producer.
Every investigative show must have a beautiful and highly relatable forensic expert, and we got exactly that with Lieutenant Commander Teresa Coulter. The blonde girl next door fell in love with Harm but sadly for her, the feelings were not mutual.
I’ve got to say, Trisha Yearwood is one hell of a woman! Her career description includes being a country music artist, actress, author, television personality and celebrity chef. She’s also been volunteering at Habitat For Humanity for the past decade, where she swings hammers and climbs ladders to help homeowners build their own homes from scratch. What a catch!
Appearing in season 10 of the show, Major General Gordon Cresswell, better known as “Biff” was a very tough and stoic leader with a sense of humor that reminded us of a brick wall. Eventually, though, his leadership and discipline helped win our admiration and love for the character.
David Andrews is most known as Lieutenant General Robert Brewster in the famous “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”. He also appeared in many films such as World War Z, Fight Club, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Hannibal and A Walk to Remember.
Cliff De Young
At the height of his career, Cliff De Young landed the role of reporter Chuck DePalma on JAG. This role lasted for 3 of the earlier seasons.
Since his time on the show Cliff’s acting career has continued steadily. Some larger roles of his include Agent John Bonacheck on The Young and the Restless, and a number of movie appearances in films such as The Road to Nowhere: a romantic thriller, and Wild: a biographical adventure drama film.
The second United States Secretary of the Navy in the series, Edward Sheffield, was played by Dean Stockwell. If you liked Sheffield in JAG, you’ll be happy to know that he also appears in the show First Monday as the same character.
Dean Stockwell’s is currently over 80 years old but you may be surprised to learn that he started his acting career when he was just 9 years old. His latest role was an episode in NCIS: New Orleans. Stockwell went on to win the best actor award actor at the Cannes Film Festival - twice!
Master Chief Petty Officer Roberts, otherwise known as “Big Buds”, was the father of Bud and Mikey. He had a tough time raising his two kids and was even slightly abusive towards them after his wife’s death, but eventually, Big Buds did right by his two sons.
Unfortunately, Jeff MacKay passed away in 2008. His last role was Larry Carter in the 2010 film “December”, about the bond between a father and son dealing with their strenuous relationship.
The handsome former special-agent-turned-rogue Clark Palmer was probably the biggest thorn in Harm’s life between seasons 3 to 6. This might have something to do with Palmer trying to kill Harm on various occasions. Finally, he was busted and sentenced to life imprisonment.
Peter Murnik is probably best known as the investigator from Seinfeld that made Kramer cry. Another fun trivia fact? Murnik went to school with a few other celebs, namely, William Hurt and Steve Carell. There’s not much else to say about his acting career, but we’d sure love to send our own kids to that high school.
Admiral A. J's last love interest was Meredith Cavanaugh. Chegwidden in the series as they bonded over their shared love of Shakespeare. Eventually the two got engaged. Unfortunately for Miss Cavanaugh, cheating on your fiancé never ends well… to that I say good riddance!
More recently, It's been so much fun seeing Isabella playing her recurring role as Clarissa Stein in DC’s “The Flash” and various spin-off shows such as Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Hofmann has one child with her partner Daniel Baldwin. We hope to see her down in the line in future shows.
The ZNN reporter we’ve loved and hated, Stuart Dunston, was one of those reporters that just has to get in on the action without too much regard for himself or anyone else for that matter. This caused him to often help or hinder JAG investigation.
John D’Aquino went on to act in various other films and shows, and currently teaches weekly classes, workshops and summer camps in Burbank for aspiring actors. You can find him as a guest star in Hannah Montana, Xena: Warrior Princess and Baywatch.
Lt. Tali Mayfield was a junior JAG officer assigned to Headquarters who shares a past with Lt. Vukovic. With incredible looks and a charm to match, it wasn’t hard for Meta Golding to find other roles to play once JAG ended.
The Haitian-American actress has played in many crime shows since, including CSI: Miami, Body of Proof and NCIS: Los Angeles. If you want to watch Meta on the big screen, you can always enjoy her as Enobaria alongside Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in the action-packed film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Harm’s foster daughter, Matilda Grace Johnson, went through some very tough times. She had to deal with the death of her mother, an alcoholic father and eventually becoming paralyzed through a biplane accident. Talk about a tough break...
I'm happy to say that Hallee Hirsh in real life is blessed with both the looks and the personality. Hallee turned 30 not too long ago and currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina, where she and her husband Ryan Martin run their very own donut shop. Her most awarded film is 16 to Life, which every teenage girl should watch.
The beautiful and talented Commander Carolyn Imes was an awesome lawyer for JAG. It was quite sad in season 9 when it was discovered that Imes never passed the bar exam, which resulted in her getting removed from the Navy, and ultimately, from the show.
Dana Sparks considers herself a “former tomboy” and it definitely shows. She’s only played in very minor shows and films since JAG and her last major performance was as Jean in the thriller film “Good Deed”. Dana loves life and claims to have a passion for art, animals and the outdoors.
Clayton Webb was the secret personality who worked for the CIA and the State Department. He was briefly involved with Mac until she decided she’s not interested in being married to a guy who can (and did) fake his own death more than once as part of his job description.
Steven Culp today, is a very active and versatile actor, with a long record of playing many characters from a doctor, to the district attorney, up to a senator and even a president. He is married to Barbara Ayers, and they have two children together.
A former girlfriend of JAG lawyer, Navy Lieutenant Commander Harmon Rabb, Annie Pendry was played by Daphne Ashbrook. Also the widow of deceased aviator, Navy Lieutenant Lucas Pendry.
Besides her later acting work, in 2010 Daphne Ashbrook has released her first music CD which was met with very positive reviews. Then in 2012 she released a memoir called “Dead Woman Laughing” detailing her life as an actress and her experience growing up in a family of actors. I can’t wait to read that one!
In season 7, we were introduced to Jennifer "Jen" Coates, a troubled young woman with a strict and judging father. Jen went some tough times during the show and even spent some time in the Naval Prison. Fortunately, Jen decided to straighten up and ended up becoming an integral part of the team.
Zoe has since continued her TV presence with roles such as Lisa George on the successful comedy show Dirty Sexy Money, and as Meredith Brody on NCIS: New Orleans. Don’t tell anyone, but I LOVED her as Marina Pretensa in the fantasy movie Dungeons & Dragons.
As Commanding Officer of the USS Seahawk, Captain Johnson was a very motivated and disciplined leader. He had a negative impression of LT Singer from the start, and I’ve got to say - he was kind of right.
Scott Paulin does have quite a list of credits to his name, after all, he has been a working actor since the late 70’s. Sadly, none of these roles have been as memorable as his time on JAG. Besides maybe his interpretation of Red Skull in the 1990’s classic Captain America film. It seems that not all supporting actors wear capes.
Feminists everywhere rejoiced to meet Bobbi Latham, the United States Congresswoman from Detroit who was an avid supporter of women's rights. Latham had several romantic interests, including Harm, and tended to take a more critical view of the US military, but was always fair in her judgment.
Anne-Marie Johnson wasn’t just an incredible feminist in her roles, she also became the first National Vice President of the Screen Actors Guild in 2005. You can check her out in the very recent American drama film Adopt a Highway.
Patrick St. Esprit
You may remember Colonel Bootney because he appeared on the last season of JAG in 2015. Like Kevin Fry, Patrick also played a few other side characters on the show in earlier seasons including CAG-USS Patrick Henry and Markov back in season 5.
The actor has since gone on to play in tough, authoritative roles such as Romulus Thread in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Elliot Oswald in Sons of Anarchy and LAPD Commander Robert Hicks in S.W.A.T. If you know someone who needs a good military discipline, Patrick St. Esprit is just the guy for it!
John DeMita played Colonel Clifford Blakely, a Recurring JAG officer assigned to the judiciary. However, he came to the show rather late and only appears in seasons 6 through 10.
The actor has since gone on to voice many roles from anime to films and video-games. John goes by many names in various shows and movies, such as John De Mita, John Demita, Archie Fletcher and Will Barret. He has also worked as a voice actor. See if you can identify his voice in the legendary anime show “Naruto”.
Alexander Kuznetsov was the actor who played Alexander Volkonov, a character-based apparently on himself. Except that the show’s Alexander was also a Captain in the Russian Army's Judge Advocate General's Corps.
Alex the actor played in various Russian-themed spy and action movies, most notably in the action film “Agent Red” alongside Dolph Lundgren. unfortunately, the actor was diagnosed in 2014 with cancer and passed away earlier this year at age 60. Let us extend our best wishes to his family.
You might remember Captain Richard Carey who appeared briefly in Season 6 as part of the judiciary. He’s played by Richard McGonagle, who’s best known for his voice-over work in video games, movies and television shows.
You can watch Richard in various shows such as The X-Files, The West Wing, and The Twilight Zone, or listen to his awesome voice in famous video-games such as Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Whether in voice over roles or on film, he always gives an excellent performance.
You may not remember Chief Petty Officer Ned Bannon, who was assigned to work the U.S.S. Seahawk alongside the JAG crew. However, despite his seemingly uneventful time on the show, Glenn went on to play many more TV and film roles.
Glenn seems to have a penchant towards playing the role of a military officer. Perhaps he was inspired by his time on JAG. That worked out pretty well though because he actually does a very good job at it. You may have seen him recently as Marshal Winthrop on The Resident.
The seductive and powerful Captain Alison Krennick was Harm's direct superior in Season 1 of JAG. She made extremely overt sexual advances towards Harm, even straight up telling him she wanted to sleep with him. This is a big no-no in the military, so obviously her shenanigans didn’t last beyond the first season.
After leaving the show, Andrea Thompson went on to play Detective Jill Kirkendall on four seasons of crime drama NYPD Blue, leaving in April 2000 to pursue a career in journalism working for CNN. Thompson’s last role lasted only 2 episodes in the crime-drama show Bones.
If you can recall, Alexander Nelson was the Secretary of the Navy and had a tendency to solve political problems quickly without regard for consequences. He was eventually forced to resign for this exact reason. Can’t say I missed him too much.
Paul has since appeared in various small roles on TV shows, movies and video-games, most notably as a congressman in Steve Carell’s biblical comedy “Evan Almighty”. Despite his dashing, youthful smile, Paul recently celebrated his 82nd birthday, so definitely congrats on that ageless face of yours, Paul.
A friend and colleague of Harm’s father, Admiral Thomas Boone, often helped save him from the court-martial. Boone led a distinguished career and rose to the rank of Rear Admiral, but never received another promotion due to allegations of war crimes he committed in Vietnam.
Terry O'Quinn began acting in the 1970s and eventually went on to direct movies as well. He’s most known for his role as John Locke on the TV series Lost. He has since appeared in various shows including Emergence, The Blacklist and as a lead actor in the show “Secrets and Lies”.
Another actor that played a terrorist for a very limited amount of episodes, is Bernard White as Sadik Fahd. Sadik causes Harm temporary deafness after his car battery explodes in his face. Eventually, Sadik was terminated by Mac before he could destroy an American nightclub.
In his real-life, Bernard White is a Sri Lankan–American actor, screenwriter and film director. He played Rama Kandra in the legendary ‘The Matrix Reloaded’ and ‘The Matrix Revolutions’. You may also catch him along with Terry O’Quinn (Admiral Thomas Boone) in the crime thriller show, “Blacklist”.
We originally met John Prosky in his role as Jon Barrow on JAG. Then again Later as Stewart Grossman, then as Reynolds’s Attorney and again as Reverend John Haynes. That’s the most characters one actor has played on the show! And you know what? I didn’t even notice...
Since then, Prosky portrayed many more interesting roles on shows such as NYPD Blue, ER, Heroes, Criminal Minds, True Blood and more. John also had a minor part in the legendary film, Straight Outta Compton. We always enjoy recognizing him in films due to his distinct blue eyes and piercing gaze.
We were just as surprised as you to realize that Montel Williams played Lt. Curtis Rivers on JAG, I mean, the former U.S. Marine Corps and Navy soldier is now one of the more recognizable faces and voices in Hollywood. Yet, He too started out as just a side character.
With nearly 50 years of acting experience under his belt, Williams has since, acted in numerous shows and movies, produced, and even hosted his own show. You may have also seen his recently on The Resident as HIMSELF! Pretty cool, huh? He’s also an outspoken advocate for US military veterans.
