Ah, who couldn't love a pretty face? Jenna Coleman burst onto the sci-fi scene in 2012 when she became the next companion to Matt Smith's pretty epic run as the good Doctor on Doctor Who. Ms. Coleman -- lovely that she is -- was born on this day back in 1986.Continue

I'm well aware that most folks don't consider superhero properties as legitimate sci-fi, but I figure they're close enough for our neck of the woods, and that's why I'll give a shout-out today to Mr. Tom Welling who turns another year older (starting from his birth on this day in 1977). In Smallville, Welling played the role of a young Clark Kent -- visitor from the planet Krypton -- who was just learning to live with these incredible powers.

However -- as can happen in Hollywood -- there was some creative differences, and much of what Donner had planned for the sequel ended up being re-envisioned by director Richard Lester.

Those of us old school sci-fi fans have fond memories of Lee Majors as The Six Million Dollar Man. An astronaut injured in the crash of an experimental craft, Steve Austin was alive. Barely alive. They rebuilt him. They made him better. Stronger. Faster. Once made into that $6M man, he used his impressive bionics to save the day, and Majors was born on this day in 1939.…Continue
