His two sons Ben and Gabriel live in England with their mother Ann; he also has a daughter, Madeline, with Susie. Jason is a fixture at sci-fi conventions all over the world, where he is known to command plenty of attention with his hyperactive wit. In his spare time he writes poetry.

    Pidgeon, Walter

    'Walter Pidgeon' a handsome, tall and dark haired man began his career studying voice at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. He then did theatre, mainly stage musicals. He went to Hollywood in the early 1920's where he made silent films, such as, Mannequin (1925) and The Girl from Río (1927). When talkies arrived, Pidgeon made some early talkie musicals, but never received top-billing or recognition. In 1937, MGM put Walter under contract but only in supporting roles and the other man roles - such as in, Saratoga (1937) opposite 'Jean Harlow' and 'Clark Gable' and in, The Girl of the Golden West (1938) opposite 'Jeanette MacDonald' and Nelson Eddy. Although the 2 films were big successes, Pidgeon was over-looked for his contribution to the films. MGM loaned him out to Fox where he finally had top-billing in How Green Was My Valley (1941). When he returned to MGM, they tried to give him bigger roles and cast him opposite frequent co-star, 'Greer Garson' . But Greer seemed to come up on top in, Blossom in the Dust (1941) and 'Mrs. Miniver (1942)' . Although, Pidgeon did receive an Oscar nomination for hi

    s role in 'Mrs. Miniver (1942)' . He remained with MGM till the mid-1950's, making films like, 'Dream Wife (1953)' and Hit the Deck (1955) with 'Jane Powell' and old pal, 'Gene Raymond' . In 1956, he left the movies to do some theatre, but returned in 1961. He retired in 1977, and suffered several strokes which eventually led to his death in 1984. - Author: Donovan Webber

    Jensen, Maren

    Maren Jensen was born in Glendale, California, on September 23, and has blue eyes and brown hair. The actress majored in theatre arts during three years at UCLA. She appeared in several college productions, but admits, "I did absolutely nothing professional, not even the California equivalent of off-off-off-Broadway." She did, however, begin a successful modeling career which included Cosmopolitan and Seventeen magazine covers. When a mutual friend introduced her to agent Barbara Gale, she was surprised by the agent's obvious enthusiasm. She was even more surprised when Ms. Gale started sending her on calls that resulted in two network commercials and a guest shot on "The Hardy Boys Mysteries." But even more startling, she recalls, was being signed for a stellar role in "BATTLESTAR GALACTICA." "It's been an incredible learning experience," she says. "No matter what you think you're learned in school, when you face a camera -- a real camera -- for the first time, it's different. There's no way to teach what I've absorbed simply playing scenes with people like Lorne Greene and Ray Milland." Ms. Jensen comes from a "totally non-theatrical" family. Her father is a physician and her mother is a membership secretary with the Los Angeles Zoo. Ms. Jensen is single -- and plans to keep it that way for at least a while -- as her career moves rapidly forward. Her hobbies are "almost all musical," including singing and playing piano. - Author: Anonymous
