Sid Haig (14 July 193921 September 2019; age 80), born Sidney Eddy Mosesian, was a California-born Armenian-American actor who played the First Lawgiver in the Star Trek: The Original Series first season episode "The Return of the Archons". Including his Trek role, Haig appeared in over three hundred and fifty episodes of various television shows and over fifty films, beginning with the short film The Host in 1960.

Fans of the James Bond films may remember him as the man who, in Diamonds are Forever, upon learning Bond was escorting his brother to be buried, remarked "I got a brother!" The film also featured Marc Lawrence, Christopher Held, and Dick Crockett. Haig also appeared twice (as separate characters) in the science fiction series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, where he played alongside Michael Ansara, Julie Newmar, Barbara Luna, David Opatoshu, and Felix Silla. Haig is probably best known for his roles in numerous B-movies and exploitation films, mostly horrors, since the 1960s.

Haig also appeared in various Rob Zombie productions, low budget films like High on the Hog and House of the Dead 2, Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown and Kill Bill: Vol. 2, and an episode of T.J. Hooker (with William Shatner).
