Who else loved watch MacGyver build things with duct tape and defuse bombs with a simple paperclip? When it comes to defusing the female fans he isn’t so good at doing that!
They actually did try to introduce a love interest for this daring 80s heartthrob but that quickly got thrown out when his female fans were outraged. It did not go well at all. I kind of feel sorry for the actress at the time, said Richard Dean
Richard Dean, now 65, also led the cast of Stargate SG-1 as soldier Jack O’Neill for eight years from 1997.
He still runs into some hardcore fans that let him know exactly how they feel!
“Once in a while. There’re some individuals who’ve made their intentions pretty clear.”
Now Dean spends most of his time promoting the cause of anti-whaling activists, Sea Shepherd.
He is actually on the board of trustees and hopes that one day his 17-year-old daughter will follow in his footsteps.
“In the early days of Stargate, she would come to set with me and I’m sure that’s where she got her interest in acting and production.”
