We have obtained from M. Krause an actin gene which hybridizes to 4 actin
genes in C. elegans. I'm not sure where you can find his phone # and
e-mail address, but you could probably look him up in on the net, or maybe
worm breeder's gazette. You can probably get his address in this
reference: Krause, M., and Hirsh, D. (1987) Cell 49, 753-761.

Hope this helps!
