Robert Duncan McNeill
The young McNeill first gained a following and a Daytime Emmy nod on ABC's "All My Children" as Charlie Brent, a likable if somewhat awkward teen romantic. He entered films as the juvenile lead in the minor superhero outing "Masters of the Universe" (1987). McNeill's career was better served playing Jack (of beanstalk fame) in the national touring company of Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods" in 1988. He continued to alternate between the stage and small screen, appearing in telefilms, miniseries, specials, and guest shots before spending a year on Broadway in John Guare's "Six Degrees of Separation" as Rick, the kid from Utah who commits suicide. He left for a promised feature starring role in "School Ties" but lost out to Brendan Fraser. McNeill returned to TV on two ABC series as a recurring character on "Homefront," the WWII-era serial, and a regular on "Going to Extremes," a comedy-drama about a medical school in Jamaica. He found a greater measure of job security playing the rakish Lt. Tom Paris on "Star Trek: Voyager" (UPN, 1995-2001).
