Go, go, Power Rangers! What a fascinating oddity the original series was. Maybe because they did 60 episodes in the first season!? The stasis: our world. The intrusion: Rita Repulsa. She was a nasty villain who plotted world destruction and domination, and used two boneheaded thugs, Bulk and Skull, to aid in the task. To combat Rita, an intergalactic sage, Zordon, chose five teenagers with attitudes to become the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. For sake of all things original, we’re sticking to the original cast of players. Where are they now?
10. Edwin Neal and Robert Axelrod — Lord Zedd
Lord Zedd was portrayed by Edwin Neal, and voiced by Robert Axelrod. Zedd joined the Power Rangers world in the second season, serving as the big boss villain, Rita Repulsa’s superior. Edwin Neal is well-known in the horror world, and has been acting in film and TV since the early 1970s. At 71, he’s still working as an actor around the clock and calendar. His Lord Zedd counterpart, Robert Axelrod, is another screen veteran, who has voiced hundreds of characters throughout his illustrious career. His most recent job? Voicing in Lord Zedd in the soon-to-be-released Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (MMPR). These are the actors who serve as unsung industry heroes. It’s awesome to see that they’re both still enjoying their craft, getting paid to do what they love and showing no signs of retirement!
