Excerpted Online Research Information (attributed to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Russ ): “Timothy Darrell "Tim" Russ (born June 22, 1956) is an Americanactor, film director, screenwriter and musician. He is known for his roles as Lieutenant Commander Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager, as Frank on Samantha Who?, and as Principal Franklin, a recurring character on the Nickelodeon live-action teen sitcom iCarly...
‘Star Trek’ and Other Roles. Russ has been extensively involved in the Star Trek franchise, as a voice and film actor, writer, director and producer. He played several minor roles before landing the role as the main character ‘Tuvok’. Russ originally screen-tested for the role of ‘Geordi La Forge’ on ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ before gaining the role of ‘Tuvok’.
While many Trek actors claim to have had little interest in the franchise before they signed on for their role, Russ went into ‘Voyager’ as a dedicated Trekkie with an extensive knowledge of Vulcan lore.
Aside from ‘Tuvok’ on the ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ series, Russ has played the following roles in ‘Trek’
*’Devor’, a mercenary in the ‘Starship Mine’ episode of ‘The Next Generation’ (1993).
*’T'Kar’, a Klingon in the ‘Deep Space Nine’ episode ‘Invasive Procedures’ (1993).
*A human tactical Lieutenant on the Enterprise in the film ‘Star Trek Generations’ (1994) (a character who is actually separate from young ‘Tuvok's’ presence on the Excelsior in the ‘Voyager’ episode ‘Flashback’).
*The Mirror Universe counterpart of his ‘Voyager’ character, ‘Tuvok’, who was a member of the Terran Resistance in the ‘Deep Space Nine’ (1995) episode ‘Through the Looking Glass’.
In 1995, Russ co-wrote the story for the Malibu Comics ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ #29 and 30, with Mark Paniccia. Russ performed voice acting roles as ‘Tuvok’ for the computer games ‘Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force’ and ‘Star Trek: Elite Force II’. Russ is also the director and one of the stars of the fan series ‘Star Trek: Of Gods and Men’, the first third of which was released in December 2007, with the remaining two thirds released in 2008.
He also did a clip of ‘Star Trek Titan’ for a tour.
Russ's character's name ‘D.C. Montana’ in ‘The Highwayman’ was a reference to ‘Trek’ writer D. C. Fontana.
In 1990 he played a role for ‘Freddy's Nightmares’, a television series that was part of the ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ (franchise). The episode had multiple quotes and hints suggesting to ‘Star Trek’ fandom, such as: ‘Beam me up Scotty,’ ‘Captain! The dilithium crystals are running out,’ and Tim Russ' character being named ‘Picard’. This can be considered an early precursor to his extensive ‘Star Trek’ career...”
