     Home | American actors | Norman Snow

Norman Snow (born March 29, 1950) is an American actor who is probably known for his role as the evil tyrant Xur in the science fiction film The Last Starfighter (1984) (a role he is slated to reprise in the 2010 sequel Starfighter, currently in production).

Snow is acknowledged in the acting community as an accomplished character actor, with the vast majority of his work being roles in television shows since the late 1970s, in series such as The Man From Atlantis, Quantum Leap, L.A. Law, and Beverly Hills, 90210. A highlight of Snow's television career is the role of Torin in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation called 'Rightful Heir' during the show's sixth season.

His film career has been more sporadic with roles ranging from the afore-mentioned The Last Starfighter in 1984, to the F.B.I. agent Springfield in the 1986 Michael Mann 'Hannibal Lecktor' thriller, Manhunter. However, Snow returned to cinema screens in 2001 in the film Moonbeams and is slated to be next seen in The Last Starfighter sequel, Starfighter, reuniting Snow with the film's original director, Nick Castle. The film is scheduled for a 2010 release.
