Happy Birthday Rick!

Wishing you all the best for yourself and your family on this wonderful day. Here's hoping your great work will carry on for a few years yet. Great work it is too, I should know I've watched you since I was 3.

Anyway, may you keep in good health and good spirits for years to come. And don't ever loose your humour, it's what makes you who you are.

Wishing you a wonderful birthday and hoping that the coming year is everything you want it to be.

Have a great time.


Hi Rick.... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

I wish I had something cool to say to you like a poem or something but I don't! What I do have to say though is that I'm a big fan and I enjoy watching everything you're involved with. You are truly a remarkable guy (and a cute one at that!) and you deserve all the rewards you are getting. I find it encouraging that you work so hard for our planet at every opportunity and you are my hero.

I wish you, and Apryl, and your beautiful daughter, Wylie every happiness in the world and I hope that you get everything you wish for on your birthday.

I especially hope you like the present that the fans got for you. Now your star will definitely be shining for ever!

All the best

Health and happiness to you and your family. The luckiest of white heather to you on your birthday!

Best wishes,

Happy Birthday & Penblwydd Hapus
in English and Welsh, from Wales

This is to wish you a "Penblwydd Hapus Iawn" which is Welsh for a "Very Happy Birthday" and to express our thanks to you for all the years of pleasure you have given us with your skilful portrayals of the many enjoyable characters you have brought to life.

We've read that you will not be doing the full Season 6 of SG-1 and that you intend to curtail your acting in favour of your family commitments and your documentary and photographic pursuits? If this is, indeed, so then may we all wish you fulfilment and joy in anything you choose to do. It is shaping up to be a year of change and challenge for you so launch yourself out there and may you find yourself in love with your new life and revel in your changed direction. We will miss you.

Happy Birthday & La Beithe Sona Duit
in English and Gaelic, from Northern Ireland

Happy Birthday Mr Anderson!!!

I can't for the life of me believe that it's your 52nd birthday, and I don't think I will ever believe it, you'll alway be MacGyver and Jack O'Neill to me. Those two will always be remembered with a smile and a laugh. Well done in all your projects and I hope to see you on TV a lot more when Stargate finishes.

Once again Happy Birthday


Belfast, Northern Ireland

All the very best and thank you for all the entertainment you have provided.

Jack Deans

Happy Birthday Rick!

I really enjoy SG-1 and your character appeals to me most.

Sorry I missed the whole MacGyver thing, I still cannot believe I only ever saw one episode! Although folks at school often called me MacGyver because I used to fix all kinds of stuff for them.

I must say that I enjoy the featurettes on the DVDs, especially when you're involved, there's a whole different side to you and a mischievous glint in your eyes.

Keep up the good work!

Many Happy Returns!

Hi Rick,

Many Happy Returns. I am a huge fan of Stargate SG-1 and of course you are my favourite, I love your character [big understatement]. I hope you have a lovely birthday and don't eat too much cake.

Happy Birthday and thanks for the great work.


Dear Mr Richard Dean Anderson:

Happy 52nd Birthday and I wish you and family all luck and happiness in the world and I hope you have a nice birthday...

Take Care...

Maria "Mac" Malmquist

Best wishes on your Birthday!!

Isn’t it strange what a huge effect our actions can have on the world. And how utterly uncontrollable they are. I watched MacGyver when I was a kid. And I never imagined for a moment that it would mean so much to me or that I would learn such valuable lessons from it. One line in particular that you used as MacGyver, I think it was in a scene with Cuba Gooding Jr, has stayed with me.

“Every action has a reaction.”

How simple. How true. In many ways the essence of MacGyver. And even though we rarely understand the full impact, we can be sure our actions will have an effect on the world, may it be a small one. I take great comfort in that knowledge. And today, as a small token on your birthday, I have taken the opportunity to express some of the impact your actions have had on me. Thank you!

I wish you the very best of birthdays. Or as we say in Sweden,

"Grattis på födelsedagen"

I hope to meet you one day....

Hyvää Syntymäpäivää
in Finnish, from Finland

Hi RDA, happy birthday. My name is Tanja and I'm from Finland and I've been your fan for many years. After MacGyver stopped there was a big gap not seeing you on TV. But now I can watch Stargate and I'm happy to see you again. It's nice to see you're happy and well, so happy birthday again.

Tanja, 21

Paljon Onnea Rick!
Joyeux Anniversaire Rick!

I am French and live in Finland for 15 years, so I am a Finn now (almost)!

I just wish you Rick a great birthday!

You are my Number One Artist for over 20 years! I think you are a wonderful man, I love your grey hair, it is so charming... You are also a great dad, just how you talk about your daughter shows how loving and warm a person you are.

I am glad to follow you on Stargate with all the SG-1 Team. It is a great show, and I have only one regret, not to be a member of this wonderful adventure!

Love and kisses,

Martine Makijarvi

Happy Birthday Richard!

And the same in Finnish:
Hyvää syntymäpäivää Richard!

It can be just a coincidence, that Stargate SG-1 and MacGyver are the best TV-series ever, or then it's all thanks to YOU! And I'm sure it really is YOU! So keep it going and stay well! I'm already waiting for the next Stargate episode to air because there acts someone very special to me...

Matti Ruohonen

Happy Birthday Richard!!! You have been an inspiration to me from the first episode of MacGyver I saw and ever since. Lots of love to you and your family.

...and this is how you say happy birthday in my native tongue, Swedish.

"Grattis på födelsedagen!"
or more formally:
"Hjärtliga gratulationer på födelsedagen!"
(which means heartfelt congratulations on your birthday in Swedish).

Olivia Granholm
Vaasa, Finland

Happy Birthday to You Richard!

I have enjoyed your series since 80-90s and now they started MacGyver re-runs here in Finland and I'm enjoying those episodes as much as when I saw them the first time. It was nice to learn that you like ice hockey too, hope you have time to watch the Olympics tournament.

All the best to you and your family from Finland!


Tillykke med Fødselsdagen
in Danish, from Denmark

Dear Richard,

I wish you a very Happy Birthday.

I also wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart. For all the wonderful hours you have given me through your work. Every single episode of MacGyver touched me with thoughtfulness, loneliness, fear, hope, laughter and love. Stargate SG-1 has given me hours of excitement, fun and a lot of laughter and of course a bit of crying too. For that I am very grateful. For you I also wish the very best from this world and the best from the other side.

With Love and Hugs
From Your Soulmate

Kathrin Liisbeth Gynning

Happy Birthday Richard!

You are a very rare and special person and a wonderful part of the world. May you always have the best and happiest things in life.

With best wishes to you and your family.

I wish you a happy birthday and the best for the coming year!

Hi Rick!

I want to wish you a very happy 52nd birthday! I hope you get to spend it with the ones you love!

I heard you might cut down on acting a bit and focus more on the big-river-project. If that makes you happy, it'll make me happy! Thanks for all the wonderful characters you brought to life and remember... don't do it if it's not FUN!

Tessa Carati

Hey Rick!!

I want to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I think that you're a great actor.

I wish you all the best

Hello Richard,

Congratulations on your 52nd birthday and live a long life in very good health. I also take this opportunity to thank you for all the characters you play. Too bad that both MacGyver and Stargate are off the air, here. I spend many hours in front of the TV to watch you. Keep up all the good work you do!!!

Once again, Happy Birthday, or as we say it in Dutch:

Hartelijk gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag!

With love,

Eindhoven, The Netherlands

I just wanted to say that I wish you and your family a very happy day. Let's hope for many more.

Greetings from,


Dearest Rick,

I`d like to wish you a very happy birthday and many more to come.

May happiness and love always be with you as you deserve it.

Thank you also for all the joy you gave and still give to so many people, and especially me.

Good luck in your work.

Lots of love,

Monique van Gerwen

First of all I'd like to congratulate you with your birthday. And I'd also like to thank you. Because after watching MacGyver a few times I finally knew which classes to take at high school. Like chemistry and machinery. Thanks a lot, and Mazzel (that is what we say in Amsterdam when we say goodbye).


Dear Richard,

I want to wish you a very happy birthday and I hope there would be many many more birthdays. And for the rest I like to say that I really enjoyed watching MacGyver and of course Stargate.

Happy Birthday!

I hope someone gets you a leatherman, but never throw your Swiss army knife away!

Thanks for hours of entertainment.


Hi Rick,

Van harte gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag!
Or maybe happy birthday is a bit more understandable.

I hope you have a great day, surrounded by the people you love and love you.

Thank you for all the hours of entertainment. For Stargate, MacGyver, Legend and all your films. Thank you for making me laugh, for making me cry. Thank you for all this and lots more.

And where ever the road (or river) may take you, may it be filled with love and laughter.

The music you heard on the opening page is from the composition "Sea Shepherd". I composed this music originally for two harps. I found the title reading an article about you mentioning your interest in the protection of the environment and the waters of our planet. Quoting their website information (www.seashepherd.org), Sea Shepherd is an organisation that is 'dedicated to the protection and conservation of marine ecosystems and biodiversity.'

The name "Sea Shepherd" filled my mind with images of the open sea and whales and I worked these elements (waves, sonar-like sounds, whales diving) into the original composition. For this fragment I arranged the two themes for one harp and added a few "starry" harp glissandi for good measure.


Elisabeth Millenaar

Hi Rick,

Happy birthday to you!! I hope you will have a lovely day and that you can celebrate it with all the people you love. For the rest of the year I wish you nothing but the best; I hope you will have more time to enjoy being with Wylie, have a lot of fun doing Stargate SG-1's final year, and good luck on your River Project documentaries! I admire you for everything you do for the environment, and I want to thank you for it very, very much. It's important, and you really can and do make a difference!

Love and best wishes,

Hey, Rick! Happy Birthday! 52 years... I have a couple of years to go before I get 52 (I am a 17 year old girl). Hope you will enjoy the reading of this fan-mail as much as we (your fans) do when we are watching to you.

My favorite TV-series of you is MacGyver. Oh Lord, can you solve many problems! And then the way you can bring a smile on your face. I wish I could meet you one time in my life, but I guess every fan of you would wish that...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY or as we will say in The Netherlands:


Lots of Love,


Dear Mr. Richard Dean Anderson,

I want to wish you a very happy birthday, or as we say in the Netherlands “een fijne verjaardag.”

My name is Zarina. I am 17 years old, but almost 18 (February the 4th). I grew up with the series “MacGyver”, I even watched it before I understood English or could read the subtitles (just like my little sister of four years old, if she sees “MacGyver” (or “Star-Gate”, she doesn’t know the difference) she always says: ‘MacGyver, MacGyver…’).

Although I must have seen every episode of “MacGyver” at least two or three times, it is still one of my favourite television series. I can still watch “MacGyver”, because they repeat the series over and over again here in the Netherlands, and since a week ago “Star-Gate” started again, so I watch that too. They are great series!!! I have also seen some of the movies you act in, and I really think that you’re a great actor; you can play very different parts very convincingly.

Last but not least, because I have spent many hours watching television and have seen you become MacGyver, Jack O’Neill or another character, I just want to thank you for every series or movie you performed in, it is really great to see you act. So therefore, THANK YOU. And I hope I can see much more of you on my television screen in the future.

Love from a huge fan,

Emmer-Compascuum, The Netherlands
