Media Guest: Jason Carter

Babylon 5 Ranger Marcus Cole, also known as British actor Jason Carter, will join the Pandoracon festivities this September.

(London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art). His first television role was on BBC2’s “Jackanory” (1965) in ‘Hawkwing’. Jason then did long runs in the London West End which included such plays as ‘Melon’ with Alan Bates, ‘The Sleeping Prince’ with Omar Sharif, ‘Salome’ with ‘Steven Berkoff’ and his Royal National Theatre productions, ‘The Boiling Point’ and ‘Absolute Hell’.

His television appearances included  “3rd Rock from the Sun” (1996),  “Roar” (1997), “Almost Perfect” (1995) and Diagnosis Murder (1992) (TV). In “Beverly Hills, 90210” (1990) he portrayed Roy Randolph, the dashing British theatre director. Not forgetting what Jason is most known for in Science Fiction, the role of the much loved and missed Marcus Cole on “Babylon 5” (1994). His credits also include numerous Television miniseries and made for TV movies, including Taking Liberty (1993), _Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris (1992) (TV), Orchard House (1991) (TV) Ellis Island (1984) (mini) and Forever Young (1983) (TV).
