Richard Dean Anderson is an American actor who voiced Killian Darkwater in Fallout.

Life and career

Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Stuart Jay Anderson and Jocelyn Rhae Carter, and has Scottish, Swedish, Norwegian and Mohawk Native American ancestry.

He appears in Fallout as the voice of Killian Darkwater, who was the clever head of Junktown, the city of post-nuclear ruins rebuilt with junk.

Anderson came to fame as an actor with the hit television series MacGyver which lasted from 1985 to 1992 and was highly successful throughout its entire run, with the lead role of Angus MacGyver.

In 1995 he starred in Legend, a comic series of only twelve episodes about a dime novel writer within the Wild West who against his will has to play the role of his own fictional character. Originally written as a TV movie, when the decision was made to make Legend a series, the original teleplay became the two-hour pilot episode.

From 1997 to 2005, he starred as General Jack O'Neill in Stargate SG-1

Anderson briefly reprized his role as Angus MacGyver in a satirical commercial; in one shot, he cuts through a thick rope with a Little Trees pine-scented air freshener.

Anderson is an advocate of gun control, a trait he has in common with his role on MacGyver; the character mostly avoided using firearms during the series. In Stargate SG-1, he regularly appears armed with a sidearm or FN P90 Personal Defense Weapon though the character continues to be firmly against reckless firearm use.
