Dear Richard,

Since 7 years I`m a very big fan of you. Now I`m 15 years old and I want to wish you a very great birthday and a lot of nice presents. So all the best to your 54th birthday on January 23rd, 04.

Sometimes I`m very sad because my biggest dream is to meet you one day but I think it will never happen. I would be very lucky if you should write to me. I don`t think you answer to my letter but I were very lucky about it and I hope it very much. If you should do this I will thank you for all my life.



Happy Birthday to you Rick. I hope you have a nice day. You are the sexiest men on the world. I love you so much. Say hello to your daughter Wylie. Hope to see you once in Germany.


Oldenburg, Germany

Seeing you on Stargate SG-1 every night is about as close as I'll ever get, but you and I love animals, log cabins, and the great sport of racing cars. We have a lot in common, single and happy I guess... HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Let's go horseback riding with our dogs!

Just a few words to wish you a very happy birthday. Enjoy your daughter as they grow up so quickly. Remember you are in the fantastic fifties now. Have a great day and many more in the future.

Best wishes,

So you're turning 54,
and still as handsome as ever.
You're a wonderful actor,
with a smile to die for.
May your year bring you as much joy,
as you've brought to others.

Happy Birthday Mr. Anderson. I hope you have a super birthday. I really enjoy your shows MacGyver and Stargate SG-1. Thank you for the enjoyment. I am also proud of my fellow Minnesotan. You have made us proud. Good luck in everything you do.

Best Wishes Always,

Debby Leon

Happy Birthday, Rick

I'm Ay-ru Yang, your big fan who lives in Taiwan. Do you remember some of Taiwan's fans who sent you and your family some Chinese jades? I'm one of them. And after that, I sent you Yo-yo Ma's CD as your birthday present. You may don't remember me but I still wanna say thank you.

I'm glad to write something to you with your fans on this website, because you helped me so much, and I just had no chance to say thanks to you. MacGyver affected me so much. He let me know, "Never give up," and this is what supported me. The idea and work of the environmental protection, I'll keep doing and trying to affect the people around me to do the same thing too. There are so many influences. He is just like my life's teacher, he keeps leading me to the right way. I believe there are many people around the world who would follow the lead of MacGyver just like me. It's a pity, I don't have MacGyver's episodes collected edition to make his effects keep going forward.

Anyway, I want to say happy birthday to you and wish your whole family happiness.

Your big fan,

Ay-ru Yang

Happy Birthday Mr. Anderson! Best wishes and love to you and your family! Thanks for sharing your special talent and sense of humor with us.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Anderson. Thank you for your skillful portrayal of the resolute, intrepid, peerless, and always "open-minded" Jack O'Neill (with 2 L's). You have made him even more endearing by showing us his (your) humorous side. I am hoping to see many more appearances by Col. O'Neill in Stargate SG-1. The creators of the show were very wise in seeking you out to play the part! May your 54th birthday add to your "JOIE DE VIVRE"!

Hi Richard.

I struggled long and hard to find just what I wanted to say and now I think I finally have it, so here we go:

I want you to know how amazing you are.
I want you to know how much you're treasured and celebrated and quietly thanked.

I want you to feel really good....about who you are
About all the great things that you do!
I want you to appreciate your uniqueness.
Acknowledge your talents and abilities.
Realize what a beautiful soul you have.
Understand the wonder within.

You make so much sun shine through, and you inspire so much joy in the lives of everyone who is lucky enough to know you.

You are a very special person, giving so many people a reason to smile. You deserve to receive the best in return, and one of my heart's favorite hopes is that the happiness you give away will come back to warm you each and every day of your life.

Thanks for all the smiles you've given me.

I hope you have a wonderful day - today and everyday.
I wish you love, peace and happiness - always.

Dearest Richard.

Sending you the dearest birthday wishes my heart contains.

May you have a fantastic day with your family and friends. I hope your life continues to be filled with love, joy and happiness.

As much as I want to see more of you on my screen, in roles we all love you in, your daughter is a very lucky girl to have you as her daddy, a daddy prepared to share so much time and love on her and the world she is growing up in.

Many, many happy returns, Richard.

With love,

Happy Birthday to a swell guy. (They said "swell" a lot back in your day, didn't they?) I hope you enjoy your 54th birthday and have a great start on your 55th year, and remember, you're not losing your youth, you're gaining arthritis, rheumatism, forgetfulness...

Bonjour Richard,

Il existe en France un coin de paradis. C'est là que poussent l'olivier, le thym, le romarin, la lavande... Ce coin s'apelle: LA PROVENCE.

C'est de là que je vous écris pour vous souhaiter un très bon anniversaire: bonheur, santé et.... succès.

J'espère que le Colonel O'NEILL (avec 2L) ne prendra pas encore sa retraite: il me manquerait.

Happy Birthday! I was happy to see you on the Wayne Brady show recently, and I thank you for being a part of one of my favorite shows, Stargate SG-1. For my sake, I hope Stargate lasts forever, but as we're not Goa'uld, I realize that's impossible. So, instead I'll say I hope the show continues for as long as it's meant to, and I thank you for all the work you've put towards this wonderful show. Fridays aren't the same since it's been on hiatus.

Dear Richard,

We would like to wish you a very happy birthday and a wonderful, fun-filled year. My daughter, Rachel, has the same birthday as you. (She will be 9 on Jan. 23.) When she found out, she became your second biggest fan (behind me of course!). We are big Stargate fans and are so happy that you will be doing an 8th season. The best to you and your daughter. Please keep supplying us with that great smile of yours and your sense of humor for many years to come.

I love you as Colonel O'Neill!


Hi Rick,

I wish you the very happiest birthday ever. I wish I could give you a birthday kiss in person but not gonna happen so here is my best to you. XOXOXOXOXOX.

I can only say WOW, AWESOME, VERY SPECIAL to express how I feel about you and the kind of man I think you are. I admire you for all you have done for others. Wylie is the luckiest young person to have a dad like you.

Maybe one day you can play a charity game of hockey (in Michigan) with the Celebrity All star Hockey team for Autism.

My Best to you and yours. Take Care.

I like you so much.
Happy birthday!


I have been a HUGE fan since your "General Hospital" and "MacGyver" days. Never missed a show... even the re-runs. And I have enjoyed you more and more over the years. Wishing you a wonderfully happy birthday, and hoping for more success as the year progresses. And I can honestly say... you are most definitely getting better with age.

Happy Birthday!

I absolutely love Stargate and love Jack - thanks for bringing such a great character to our screens. I hope you have a wonderful day!


Happy 54th Birthday, Richard! As a fan since MacGyver you just keep getting better looking with age. As far as I am concerned you don't look a day over 45. Thank you for all the years of enjoyment through your TV series and your TV movies. Being a father seems to agree with you and you are doing a great job with your daughter Wylie. Many more birthdays for you and please continue to be the great guy that you are.

Happy Birthday Richard!

Hi Ricky Dean!

Thanks so much for your work in protecting our environment, for the great one-liners delivered as Jack O'Neill (cracks me up), for the great messages in MacGyver, and for all of the work you've done that has kept us entertained.

I also want to thank you for going gray! I allowed my natural gray hair to show two years ago and I'm loving it. It's freeing!

You are truly an excellent actor. Best wishes for a very happy birthday, and great year to follow, and much love & hugs to you and Wylie.

MacGyver changed my life. Watching it everywhere in the world together with friends who loved it just as much, provided me with memories that will last a lifetime!

Take care.

Dear Richard,

I would like to wish you a Happy Birthday, enjoy this day with all your family, friends and fans. You have the prettiest 54 years than I've ever seen!!

I'm from Spain, and I'm your fan since always and I always will be. Thanks for the great moments with "MacGyver", thanks for the moments with "Emerald Point", thanks for "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and so many series. I hope you can read this message, you know you have a lot of fans in Spain. Kisses, and Merry Christmas too.


Just wanted to wish you the happiest of Birthdays on your special day. Not only have my husband and I been great fans of the roles you have played throughout the years, but we are also great fans of the work you have done ecologically and with children. Hope you have many more happy days!

I just wanted to say Happy Birthday, and thanks for the many hours of enjoyment you have given us with your talent and your time. Enjoy your day with Wylie and family. Happy Happy Birthday Snookums!!!

With lots and lots of love,
God Bless,


May your day be wonderful spending it with those who love you. Cheers :)

As a fan who followed your MacGyver career, thank you. I'd only wish to have been able to see your GH work. If I was more of a science fiction fan, I'd probably be a fan of SG-1 as well. I loved your interview on Jay Leno a while back. A very nice surprise to see you doing commercials too. I appreciate the postcard that was sent, not really knowing if I would get a response. I too ride motorcycles as well, maybe one of your charity rides will pass my way. That picture of you with your infant daughter was so beautiful I cried, how precious. Thanks again for sharing your craft with the world and representing the Midwest.

Take care and best wishes,

You really are an inspiration ...
your enthusiasm for life is just infectious ...
the world is truly a better place by having you in it!

Keep up the great work with the environmental projects
that have captured your imagination and heart ...
and of course Stargate!

May all your dreams and aspirations for the coming year come true!

Happy Birthday Rick and have great fun. Stay like you are charming and a great family guy.


Thank you for entertaining us and for gracing us with your presence - here's hoping for many more years to come.

Many happy returns - I hope you spend the day with those you love, sharing smiles and laughter.


Growing up is mandatory; growing old is optional...

Keep up the great work and have an awesome birthday!

I wanted to do something for you on your Birthday that would make you happy, but I couldn’t figure out exactly what.

Nothing I could come up with seemed special enough for a wonderful person like you. A couple of times of times I thought I’d found the answer but then I’d think NO, not good enough for such a terrific man.

I became obsessed. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. My work began to suffer as I fell into a deep depression. I started to become PARANoid. Whenever I’d hear people laugh, I thought they were laughing at my failure to do something nice for one of my favorite people on his Birthday. FiNaLLy I had a complete mental breakdown. I had to be institutioNalized.

I sure hope you’re happy now, you’ve ruined MY liFE.

(Oh, yeah! Have a Happy Birthday!)

Happy Birthday Richard.

Hope you have a great day and a great year.


Happy Birthday Richard!

How do you plan to spend it? I just wanted to let you know that I think you're incredible. I am planning a trip to Canada next summer and would love to visit Stargate studios - any chance??
