Star Trek actor Michael Dorn turns sixty on Sunday. To celebrate his birthday, we look back to see what became of him and other stars who boldly went where no actors had gone before...

Then: Dorn played Lieutenant Worf, the stern Klingon Starfleet officer, who appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and in subsequent films.

Where is he now? Dorn’s voice has actually grown deeper from years of playing the booming Worf, so since departing the Star Trek universe his most prominent work has been voice-overs for videogames and cartoons, including Family Guy, I Am Weasel and Kim Possible. On screen, Dorn’s been limited to cameo appearances in shows such as Without a Trace, Heroes and several made-for-TV films. However, it’s been rumoured that he’s developing a new spin-off sci-fi TV series about his Klingon character, that would see him reprise his most famous role.
