Pages that are UNDER CONSTRUCTION may be incomplete, have broken links or contain unverified information.

This is the cross-reference page for actors who have played a role in any of the various Max Headroom productions, as well as a cross-reference for the characters.

This page is a jumbled mess of combined material and broken links. Proceed at your own risk...

Name Links

Where it is useful to do so, names in this list are linked to other pages.

  • Characters with enough significance to warrant discussion (especially those shared between the telefilm and pilot episode, or who otherwise appear in more than one episode) are likely to have a link to a page here.
  • Actors who are regulars or recur in multiple episodes are likely to have a link to a page here.
  • Actors who appear in one episode, or have very minor roles in more than one, will have a link to their IMDb page, if they have one.
  • Characters and actors who lack any link are those about whom there's nothing useful to say and do not have IMDb listings worth a separate visit. There are a number of these, since the ABC series tended to use very minor, sometimes one-role actors.

Generally, if there is something interesting about the actor or character, a link to more information will be found. No link means, well, that the actor name and role name are the highlights.
