Cast and Crew

Micki Foster

Micki Foster

played by Louise Robey

Micki is the beautiful red-head who inherites the store, along with her cousin-by-marriage, Ryan Dallion. Micki is quite fashionable, and (at first) is a bit of a snob. As the series progresses, Micki becomes more independent, less vulnerable, and less concerned about material possesions, other than the cursed objects, that is. Her character gets much stronger as the series progresses, and she becomes an even more fascinating, multi-faceted character.

Micki was killed once for half an episode when a cursed coin was used on her ["Tails I Live, Heads You Die"]. Ryan and Jack eventually tricked a coven to bring her back. She is about 5'7" ["Mightier Than the Sword"] and both her parents are still alive ["The Long Road Home"]. Her mother, Catherine ["Pipe Dream"], is Irish, and her father was English ["Shadow Boxer"].

She has an irresponsible sister, and a nephew, J.B., who is often left in Micki's care ["A Friend To the End"]. She was engaged once, but broke it off at last minute when she couldn't bear the thought of leaving Jack and Ryan to care for the store alone ["The Root of All Evil"].

Ryan Dallion

Ryan Dallion

played by John D. LeMay

Ryan is the enthusiastic, handsome co-inheritor of Curious Goods. He is a comic book fanatic and he obviously has a crush on Micki (a crush that continues on through the series). He is excited about fixing up the store and has a strong sense of duty throughout the show as he works with Micki and Jack. At first, Micki and Ryan's relationship is based on sarcastic comments, but they grow to be very special to each other.

Ryan's last name, a puzzle to most, was first pronounced "Da Leeon," with a French accent, by Micki. Ryan corrected her with "Da Lion," and uses that pronunciation for a few episodes, but as he matures, he pronounces it to rhyme with "medallion."

His father, Ray, was an inventor, who nearly killed Micki, but when Ryan tried to sacrifice himself in Micki's place, guilt took over and Ray killed himself ["Pipe Dream"]. Ryan's relationship with his dad was not a good one. His brother Jimmy died at age 10, and his mother ran out on them shortly after ["Scarecrow", "The Prophecies"]. She returned just before Ryan went to France with Micki, after which he returned as a child, leading to his departure from the show.

Jack Marshak

Jack Marshak

played by Chris Wiggins

Jack is a close friend of Micki and Ryan and lives with them as they fight the forces of evil antiques. Jack is a former magician, and an expert in the occult. He used to supply antiques for Lewis' store, and met Micki and Ryan when he came to collect on an old debt. He found out Lewis was dead, and began helping collect the cursed antiques.

Jack had been married once, and had a clairvoyant son, Peter, who died in a young girls dream plane ["Bottle of Dreams"]. Jacks father disappeared when Jack was a young man, only to return a few years later. We then learn that the man who came back was a spirit ["Midnight Riders"].

Jack, who has served in World War II and nearly died in a Nazi war camp ["The Butcher"], was engaged to a scientist, who left him to do field research. She shows up in his life years later, but we know she was condemned to death when they plan to marry ["Brain Drain"].

Johnny Ventura

Johnny Ventura

played by Steven Monarque

The naive, but likeable Johnny was brought into the show in the end of season two, to set up for Ryan's departure, and became a regular in season three.

He is first introduced as a skirt-chaser, who has the hots for Micki ["Wedding Bell Blues"]. Later on, things begin to neutralize, but heat up again when the two take a trip to retrieve a cursed object, and on the way home end up in an abandoned house ["The Long Road Home"].

Johnny's father, a security guard, was shot on the job ["The Prisoner"]. Johnny was so bereaved that he unknowingly used the coin that killed Micki to bring his father back to life ["Bad Penny"]. He has been arrested twice during the course of the show, once for being a suspected accessory to murder ["Wedding Bell Blues"] and again as a suspect in his fathers murder ["The Prisoner"]. Also mentioned in ["Wedding Bell Blues"] is the fact that he has a bail-bondsman, which it seems he is on goods terms with.

Rashid

Rashid

played by Elias Zarou

Rashid, long-time friend of Jack, only appears twice, but is mentioned many more times.

His knowledge of the occult may be greater than even Jack's, and he seems to be Jack's most trusted outside resource in the fight against evil - Jack even borrows his car ["The Sweetest Sting"]

Biography and Filmography

Lewis Vendredi

(Uncle) Lewis Vendredi

played by R.G. Armstrong

Uncle Lewis made a deal with Satan to sell cursed antiques. He broke the pact, and died under mysterious, supernatural circumstances. The store went into probate (no one wanted it) and Micki and Ryan inherited it.

Lewis appears in quite a few episodes and when he does, he serves one of two purposes: 1.) Sets up the plot by describing past occurences through flashbacks or 2.) Is trying to come back to life. Lewis was married once, but his wife died as a consequence of his pact with Satan ["Hellowe'en"]. She was against it.

While it appears that R.G. Armstrong also plays the auctioneer in ["Eye of Death"], he doesn't. Apparently the actor who plays the auctioneer in that episode looks remarkably similar to Armstrong, but it is not him. Thanks to the Friday's Curse for spotting this!

Barclay Hope as Lloyd

Lloyd

played by Barclay Hope

Lloyd is Micki's fiance when the show starts. Although we only meet him twice ("The Inheritance" and "Root of All Evil"), there are several occasions between the two episodes when Micki speaks with him on the phone. He seems to have a great deal of influence in her life, but doesn't seem to have much respect for her ability to think for herself.

Barclay hope also played Steve Wells in "Epitaph for a Lonely Soul"
