One of the most destructive things in my life was the kind of parts I played in pictures. I studied Shakespeare and the classics, and I end up shooting Joan Crawford
and killing a horse that Elizabeth Taylor

Had one son, John Lawrence Fifield who later adopted the Markle surname. In 1987 he killed his wife, children and then himself.
Raspy but strong and often scary voice
