116: Paul Dooley is your Movie Dad and DS9 Dad!

Paul Dooley is your Movie Dad and DS9 Dad!

Paul Dooley is a veteran actor who most of us know from the many times he’s played a dad on-screen. That includes his time on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” where he played Enabrin Tain on four episodes of that show, who we eventually learned was Garak’s father. We are digging deep into how Paul played this member of the Obsidian Order and what he recalls from his time on and off-set.

 Paul also told us about his origins in acting, going from the theater world to national commercials, his time improving at Second City, writing on “The Electric Company,” being on “The Golden Girls.” The backdoor pilot for “Empty Nest” with Rita Moreno, “Sixteen Candles,” “Breaking Away,” “Popeye” with Robin Williams and Robert Altman, and more!
