Meeting Captain Galaxy

Meeting Richard was a great experience. He called me Friday morning and left a message saying he would be able to meet with me later that day. So, I left work a bit early and ran a couple of errands in Wilmington while I waited for him to call back. He called around 5:30pm and said "Brian, this is Captain Galaxy!" I was thrilled, needless to say. I drove across town to the Hampton Inn and Suites near the golf club that Richard was going to be playing at the next day. He and his wife were so nice to me and we chatted for a few minutes about various topics from where we grew up to how life in the quiet coastal towns of North Carolina is starting to be not-so-quiet anymore. While we were there, he introduced me to Gil Gerard who played 'Buck Rogers' in "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century!" Richard mentioned that one of his top favorite characters to play was Moe Stien in Future Boy. He said that after playing bad guys for the bulk of his career, he really enjoyed playing a character with so much value and heart. He also said that his favorite comedic character was Mr. Wilhelm in "Seinfeld." It was a pleasure meeting and speaking with him and he wanted me to pass along a message to you:

"Say hello to the fans, from Captain Galaxy!"

See you in the future.
Brian
