About Walter Koenig (1936 – )
Walter Koenig is best known for his role as "Chekov" he portrayed in seven Star Trek films, a role that he first established on the two year run of the classic Star Trek television series. Walter was originally cast on the show because he resembled teenage heart-throb Davey Jones (actor on The Monkeys), as the producers wanted to draw a younger audience.

Even though most of his film career has centered on being in the Star Trek film series,Walter Koenig has led a full life being a stage actor (30 years), acting in guest spots and movies for TV, being a screenplay, stage play, TV episode, comic book and novel writer, being a college teacher (UCLA), and being husband and father.

Walter's writings include the non-fiction book Chekov's Enterprise, and the satiric fantasy novel Buck Alice and the Actor-Robot. In 1998, Walter Koenig wrote another book entitled Warped Factors - A Neurotic's Guide to the Universe. His screenplay, You're Never Alone when You're a Schizophrenic was a finalist in the 1996 New York Film Festival.

Koenig has been married to actress Judy Levitt since 1965 and they have one son, Andrew.
