Snow is acknowledged in the acting community as an accomplished character actor, with the vast majority of his work being roles in television series since the late 1970s, in series such as Man from Atlantis, Quantum Leap, L.A. Law and Beverly Hills, 90210. A highlight of Snow's television career is the role of Torin in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation called "Rightful Heir" during the series' sixth season.
