Personal Quote:

Flying back from New York, the flight attendant said, "God, I wished you were here yesterday, we had a stroke on the plane". I said, "If I have a stroke on a plane, I hope the pretend doctor isn't the one on the plane. I want a real doctor." See more »


When Edwards received a large bonus from the producers of ER, he donated a large portion of it to the Santa Barbara Junior High School for the renovation of its theater, later named in honor of his middle school drama teacher, Marjorie Luke. The Theater is now home to numerous plays and performances not only for the Junior High School, but also for the entire community. See more »
