Dodger [Episodes 9-64, recurring previously], played by Jeff Kober

Evan "Dodger" Winslow (as played by Jeff Kober) was the soul of the Vietnamese war drama China Beach. Dodger represented the generation of young men sent to fight in a conflict they did not understand. Enigmatic, restless, and very much the loner, Dodger diligently played the role of soldier but refrained from making human contact with those around him. It was through the character of Dodger that John Sacret Young (the master storyteller behind China Beach) visioned for the audience the true horrors of war and their affect on the human psyche.
Colleen McMurphy, played by Dana Delany

The central character in the Vietnamese war drama China Beach was Nurse Colleen McMurphy. McMurphy was a very complex individual. She could be tough as nails when the situation called for it but kind and compassionate when caring for her charges. McMurphy suffered her own demons brought on by the stress of the war. She began drinking heavily and eventually sank into alcoholism. It was nearly twenty years after she left the China Beach base that McMurphy finally found a measure of peace.
