!!This actor provides examples of:
* DeadpanSnarker: His real-life tendency to be this was put to maximum effect on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' and ''Series/BabylonFive''.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Creator/GeorgeTakei. Not only did George ask him to be the best man at his wedding, but when he was asked if Sulu had a middle name, he suggested "Walter", in honor of Koenig.
* OlderThanHeLooks: Played with, along with DawsonCasting. He was 30 when he joined the cast of Star Trek, playing 22 year old Chekov. Throughout the movies he still maintained much of his youthful looks, even as Chekov himself approached middle age.
