Trevor Goddard (October 14, 1962 – June 7, 2003) was a former professional boxer turned movie actor. His best known roles are Kano in the first Mortal Kombat movie and Lieutenant Commander Mic Brumby on JAG.
For much of his early days, he did cameo roles in many television shows before his movie career took off. In 1995, Trevor played possibly his best known role as Kano in the film adaptation of Mortal Kombat. Originally, Kano's character was an American orphan raised in Japan, but because of the praise Goddard received from fans of the game for his Australian rendition of the character, Kano was retconned to being of Australian descent in his honor. Additionally, the latest appearance of the Kano character in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is also modeled after Goddard's look in the film, a fitting tribute to Trevor.
Trevor also was known for his role in the hit tv show JAG as Lieutenant Commander Mic Brumby. In a somewhat ironic moment, JAG gave him a tribute by having the crew sing 'Waltzing Matilda', an Australian folk song, remade from archival footage from a previous episode. He would go on to star in other movies such as Gone in Sixty Seconds and Hollywood Vampyr. He appeared in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl as the pirate Grapple in 2003. This turned out to be his last movie role.
He was featured in television commercials for Hoover Floor Mate.
