Mini Bio (1)

Born in Lowell, Massachusetts (July 24, 1936), the actor (real name: Charles Goddard) grew up in Scituate, Massachusetts, where his father owned a five-and-ten. At Holy Cross, the head of the dramatic society encouraged him to become an actor and, soon, Goddard was off to Manhattan, attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He worked with stock companies and made guest appearances on TV before landing regular parts on TV series of his own. Throughout his acting career, in between jobs, Goddard has worked with children, from Head Start programs in California to Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. His daughter, Melissa Goddard, is a producer; the two co-wrote 1992's Big Girls Don't Cry... They Get Even (1992), a film about Mark's work with "at-risk" kids.

Personal Quotes (4)

I had a wonderful life as an actor. But I didn't want to be sitting around in Hollywood, kind of a halfway celebrity looking for his next job.
[on the discouragement of the actors]: Well, that's going to happen. I understand that. I understand there are times when you have to read, when you have to do things. But I can tell you horror stories about it - every actor out there can, horror stories from people who I've worked with.
[on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Jonathan Harris, who played Dr. Zachary Smith]: You know, for Jonathan, it was gruelling days, because he was in just about every scene, he had a lot of weight to pull on the show, he had a lot of lines to learn and he worked with them creatively. He made up lines, he re-wrote lines for himself and he worked very hard. Plus, he took time in the make up chair, it wasn't just thrown on, he cared about that, he cared about every aspect of Lost in Space, because he is the consummate professional. We all were professionals, we all had a great background before doing Lost In Space, but Jonathan had done a lot of theatrical work, television work and movies. He worked very hard on the set.
[Of Jonathan Harris]: Jonathan and I get along real well. He's a wonderful man, he worked very hard in the part. We had a lot of laughs and we still do get together. We really share memories and we have a great time.
