Description   [from Freebase]

Scott Hale Reiniger, Prince of Ghor (born September 5, 1948) is an American actor, one of the stars of the 1978 film Dawn of the Dead. Reiniger was born in White Plains, New York, in the United States. He is a graduate of Rollins College in Theater Arts. In 2004 it was revealed that Reiniger is the "Prince of Ghor", a province in western Afghanistan. Reiniger's great, great, great grandfather, Josiah Harlan, was the first American to set foot in Afghanistan. Harlan was granted sovereignty in perpetuity, for himself and his descendants, by Refee Beg, in exchange for military support. Reiniger has expressed mild interest in the title and suggests passing it to his younger brother Harlan Reiniger a historian and PBS documentary producer, but in general considers the title an anecdote and curiosity of no real world importance. Reiniger made a cameo appearance in the 2004 version of Dawn of the Dead directed by Zack Snyder. He currently teaches at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Hollywood. Mr. Reiniger continues to attend horror conventions around the world.
