About this site (and its maker)
This site is dedicated to Lee Tergesen and to
helping fellow fans satisfy their curiosity about this terrific
I "discovered" Lee sometime around November of 2003. Admittedly,
that was a little late in the game. "Oz" had officially ended, but
it was still being re-run on HBO.
I channel-surfed into what is probably one of the most violent and
emotionally devastating episodes, "Escape from Oz." I recognized a
few actors -- Christopher Meloni, J.K. Simmons, Rita Moreno, etc. --
but there was this other guy...
his performance as Tobias Beecher, Lee compelled me to keep watching
a series I ordinarily wouldn't have watched. Too violent, mostly.
But his was the character and the storyline that hooked me. There's
something magnetic about him. And I wanted to see what else he's
That curiosity has led me into great friendships, a chance to meet
Lee and a growing video and DVD library.
History of this site:
was set up around the year 2000. It was
an American-Canadian joint venture between three fans: Andrea,
William and Bekka.
They stated on the home page: "It was undertaken strictly out
of admiration for Lee, and also for his fans to have a place to
share in their appreciation of his work."
In that statement, it's clear that although the ownership of the
site has changed over the years, the purpose has not!
In August 2001, LeeTergesen.net was launched by Dori, and the site
became the official site in March 2002.
Dori, with assistance from Anne, acquired the LeeTergesen.com domain
in an auction in February 2004.
In 2005, I launched The Annotated Lee Tergesen site, which had the
domain name of LeeTergesen.info. My aim was not to duplicate efforts
already on the Web, but to supplement and organize pieces of
information from many sources. I had been acquiring all of Lee's
movies and TV shows, and wanted to share even more information and
In April 2010, Dori entrusted me with the keeping of the official
site. Both Anne and Dori have been invaluable resources to me, and I
thank them heartily.
The Official Lee Tergesen Site contains all
the content from LeeTergesen.info as well as LeeTergesen.com (a
domain name that Lee himself now owns.)
The site remains a labor of love and exists as a way to help fans
appreciate the work of this talented actor. I hope you find it
useful and entertaining!

About screen caps
Each page includes
screen-capped images from the particular show or movie
described. The quality and size or the
screen caps vary because the source material varies -- from
crisp, commercially made DVDs to blurry VHS tapes that have
been recorded a few times. I'll try to upgrade the fuzzy
images whenever possible.
