Galyn Görg, a dancer and actress who appeared on such shows as Twin Peaks and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and in films including Point Break and RoboCop 2, has died. She was 55.
Görg died in a hospital in Hawaii on Tuesday — one day before her birthday — of cancer, her agent Sheila Legette said.
Görg starred as police detective Leora Maxwell on the 1994-95 Fox sci-fi drama M.A.N.T.I.S., co-created by Sam Raimi, and played Nancy O’Reilly, the sister of One Eyed Jacks madam Blackie O’Reilly (Victoria Catlin), on three episodes of ABC’s Twin Peaks in 1990.
And on a 1996 installment of NBC’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, she portrayed a woman named Helena who KOs Will Smith in a boxing ring.
A native of Los Angeles, Görg appeared in the popular 1983 music video for the ZZ Top song “Sharp Dressed Man” and a year later danced on NBC’s Fame.
She went on to appear on The A-Team, Jake and the Fatman, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Lost, Parks and Recreation and How to Get Away With Murder and in films including Storyville (1992) and The Wrong Friend (2018).
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help her family with expenses. Görg was not married and had no children.
