5. King Abdullah II ibn al-Hussein
In real life: He’s the current ruler of the Hashermite Kingdom of Jordan. He ascended to the throne in 1999 after his father, King Hussein, died.
As seems common for Middle Eastern royalty, he was schooled in the UK (he went to college at Oxford) and also attended Deerfield Academy across the pond.
Which might be where he picked up an abiding love of Trek…
In Star Trek: Who can say no to royalty? Especially as he can probably have you offed in secret.
He swung a role on Star Trek: Voyager, back in 1995 – when he was still a prince and not too busy ruling his country - as a science officer in the episode ‘Investigations’.
Did you know? Since he’s not a member of the Screen Actors Guild, he wasn’t allowed any speaking lines in his brief cameo.
There are some things even royal power can’t make happen, apparently.
