Rusty Hamer (1947–1990)

A deadpan, freckle-faced, curly-haired child actor of the late 50s, Rusty Hamer entered films at age 5 and became a precocious TV celebrity the very next year, trading quips with top comedian Danny Thomas as his lippy, obnoxious son, on the hit sitcom, Make Room for Daddy (1953), in 1953.

Personal Quote:

My life as a child bore no resemblance to what I believed was normal -- i.e., the way people lived on television, a medium I mistook for my window on reality. Even on TV, though, peer models were scarce, which is why I ended up identifying with a kid I didn't even like.

Trivia:

Younger brother of John Hamer.

Star Sign:

Aquarius
