Tate got his start as an actor in 1965 in the TV series My Brother Jack, and went on to star in several roles, being best known as astronaut Alan Carter from "Space 1999". He has also had guest appearances on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and The X-Files and Lost.
Playing Xizor and IG-88 was Tate's first role as a voice actor in a video game, but not his last; he played "Ozzie Mandrill" in Escape from Monkey Island four years later. His most recent role is as a surgeon in The Gene Generation.
