I have just started watching (along with my wife) DS9 after about two weeks break since ending watching entire TNG. When we started watching "Past Prologue", my wife recalls that she saw the same actor (Jeffrey Nordling) in at least one TNG episode.

Is that true or did she made a mistake? I can't find any reference about appearance of this actor anywhere outside DS9.

    He does look slightly like the guy who played T'Jon in Symbiosis: en.memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/T%27Jon – Lèse majesté Jul 20 '15 at 10:07

    I was thinking he looked a bit like Jev from TNG: Violations – Valorum Jul 20 '15 at 10:28

    I believe the actor she thought was Nordling was actually Timothy Carhart, playing Lt Commander Hobson in REDEMPTION episode of TNG. They look and act very much alike. I had to look it up to be sure. – Dan Dec 14 '17 at 18:53

Going through this list on IMDB, it seems not. Considering that this list includes all people in The Next Generation, including those uncredited, I doubt that Nordling was involved in any The Next Generation episodes. Potentially Nordling looks similar to someone else who was in an episode of TNG, but we can be fairly certain that Nordling himself was not involved!

    We can't, of course exclude that he was in a deleted scene or was cast to help someone run lines. – Valorum Jul 20 '15 at 9:54
  • @Richard good point! – Often Right Jul 20 '15 at 10:09

    That said, Trejder's wife couldn't possibly have seen him in a deleted/cut scene. – Valorum Jul 20 '15 at 10:27

    @Richard: Unless it was in DVD "extras"... – T.J. Crowder Aug 19 '15 at 7:06
  • No, we haven't. No deleted scenes / extras. Thus, she must mistaken this guy with some other actor, looking slightly similar, as suggested in comments to question. – trejder Dec 15 '17 at 7:56
