THE GO- TO SF KID

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The Fantastic Journey -

Ike Eisen­mann long ago left act­ing be­hind for pro­duc­tion and sound ef­fects work, re­vert­ing to his legal name of Iake Eiss­in­mann in the process.

In the ’ 70s, how­ever, he seemed to have a mo­nop­oly on child science fic­tion roles. His other SF cred­its in­clude tele­vi­sion show The Winged Colt and movies Es­cape To/ Re­turn From Witch Moun­tain and Star Trek II. “I loved science fic­tion,” he says. “I found my­self work­ing a bit harder on my au­di­tions for things like Star Trek II.” He still gets peo­ple yelling “The bloody hand­print!” in ref­er­ence to the way his dy­ing char­ac­ter Peter Pre­ston messed up Kirk’s shirt in Wrath Of Khan.
