Trevor Goddard (14 October 1962 – 7 June 2003) was an English actor. He played Kano in the first Mortal Kombat movie and Lieutenant Commander Mic Brumby on JAG. Goddard was born in Croydon, Surrey, England, in 1962. For much of his career, he claimed to be of Australian descent and often played Australian characters. He appeared in cameo roles in many television shows prior to 1995. That same year, Goddard played Kano in the film adaptation of Mortal Kombat. His performance as Kano became the source of the character's evolution in the video games. He would go on to act in other movies such as Gone in Sixty Seconds, Men Of War (with Dolph Lundgren and future JAG co-star Catherine Bell) and Hollywood Vampyr. Goddard played in the television drama series JAG as Lieutenant Commander Mick Brumby and was featured in TV commercials for the Hoover FloorMate. He made his last on-screen appearance in the 2003 movie Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.
