Personal Quote:

The theatre gave me an identity. It taught me social skills and taught me to listen, and made me more of a maverick.

Trivia:

According to Charles Ziarko in his article on Richard in the film magazine Classic Images, June 2008, the actor's father fought in the South Pacific during WWII, developed elephantiasis, and died of his illness within a short time. Richard kept the flag from his father's military funeral. See more »
