Henry LeGault (May, 02 1937—September 10, 2012) is an American actor credited as Lance LeGault.

LeGault worked as a stunt-double for Elvis Presley in three of Presley's movies, Girls! Girls! Girls!, Kissin' Cousins and Viva Las Vegas. He later became a prolific guest star in many 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s productions, including The Rockford Files, Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, T.J. Hooker, Knight Rider, Magnum P.I., Star Trek: The Next Generation, and MacGyver.

In the Original Series he portrayed Bootes in "The Lost Warrior", and later Maga, one of the Borellian Nomen in "The Man with Nine Lives".

LeGault was present when Don Bellisario jokingly came up with the word "nomen", which would eventually become Borellian Nomen, the name of Maga's tribe of humans[1].

According to his daughter Mary, Glen Larson claimed that LeGault's voice was “four octaves lower than God’s."[2]

He would later be better known for his role of Colonel Roderick Decker, the recurring antagonist in The A-Team television series.

In addition to his roles in television and film, LeGault lent his voice to various commercials, cartoons and video games, as well as being the narrator of the tour audiotape for Elvis Presley's Graceland Mansion and Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.[3]

LeGault passed away on Monday, September 10, 2012 according to his daughter, Mary. He is survived by Teresa, his wife of 35 years; their daughters Mary and Teresa; and sons Marcus and Lance[2].

Lance LeGault

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore .

Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.

One of My favorites. Whenever I picture the Nomen I immediately think of that voice. He'll be missed.

Immensely saddened. The A-Team, BSG, even TJ Hooker (also called Decker no less) and others. RIP
