Galyn Görg (surname pronounced George[needs IPA]), also credited as Galyn Gorg, Galan Gorg and Gaylyn Görg (July 15, 1964 – July 14, 2020), was an American actress and dancer, best known for her role in the film RoboCop 2 as Angie, the Nuke addicted bad girl; on M.A.N.T.I.S., television's first black superhero program, as Lt. Maxwell; on the television show Twin Peaks as Nancy O'Reilly; and as a starring dancer on two separate Italian variety shows, Fantastico on the channel RAI and SandraRaimondo Show on the channel Canale 5.
Görg died of cancer on July 14, 2020, a day before her 56th birthday. She was diagnosed with it the week before, after it was found all over her body and lungs.
Görg's career began with her dancing. Trained in the styles of jazz, ballet, Haitian, Afro-Samba, Afro-Cuban, West African, hip-hop, hula and funk, she trained with the Roland Dupree Dance Academy and the Alvin Ailey Summer Program, and went on to work with choreographers such as Debbie Allen, Michael Peters, and Marguerite Derricks. She studied acting with, among other groups, Improv for the People, The Groundlings, and the Pacific Resident Theater.
Görg's work in film, television, music video and live theatrical performances has spanned a multitude of countries, including, the Middle East, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Canada as well as other parts of the world. She starred as the live-interest dancer in the iconic ZZ Top music video "Sharp Dressed Man" and achieved fame in Italy as the dance star of two separate variety series on Italian television, including Fantastico (on RAI) and SandraRaimondo Show (on Canale 5).
Görg's best-known role was Lt. Leora Maxwell in the 1994 TV series M.A.N.T.I.S., which had been adapted from a film of the same name. The character played by Görg was not present in the film/pilot of the television show, but was added when the show was picked up by Fox Network. There was some controversy surrounding the series at the time, due to accusations that the producers removed African-American themes to make it more appealing for mainstream viewers. Görg was also a professional dancer who lectured in different schools and performed all over the world.
