Profile Bio Text
Armin Shimerman (born November 5, 1949) is an American actor. Shimerman is best known for playing the Ferengi bartender Quark in the television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine , Principal Snyder in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and for voicing Andrew Ryan, the antagonist of Bioshock. Shimerman is best known for his role as the Ferengi bar owner Quark in the long running television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, though his involvement with the Star Trek franchise began with appearances as other Ferengi characters in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes "The Last Outpost" and "Peak Performance". As the character Quark, Shimerman became one of Star Trek`s most widely-known characters, and he appeared several times on the cover of TV Guide, either with other actors or alone as part of a collector`s series. Along with Marina Sirtis, John de Lancie, Michael Ansara and Richard Poe, he is one of only five actors to play the same character on three different Star Trek series. He played Quark in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager. In addition to Star Trek, Shimerman has had roles as Pascal on Beauty and the Beast and as Principal Snyder in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He also has starred in Stargate SG-1 as one of the Nox, an evil wizard in Charmed, appeared as Stan the caddy in an episode of Seinfeld, and as Dr. Patemkin on Leverage.
Shimerman has appeared as a judge in the third season of Boston Legal. He joined fellow Star Trek actors William Shatner, Rene Auberjonois, and Ethan Phillips in the same season of Boston Legal. Shatner played Captain Kirk on Star Trek, Auberjonois played Odo on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Phillips played Neelix on Star Trek: Voyager. His character even shared a scene with Auberjonois, with the strife between the two characters reminiscent of the conflict between Shimerman`s Quark and Auberjonois`s Odo. Armin made an appearance as "The Terror" in The Tick live action series. He appeared in a season three episode of Numb3rs as an art expert. He also appeared in the episode "Posse Comitatus" of The West Wing as Richard III, and had a cameo role in both What the Bleep movies. He also appeared in the episode "Buck the Stud" of Married with Children.
Shimerman is married to actress Kitty Swink.
