Personal Quote:

Acting is the most mortal of the arts. Like perishable foods, it must be taken fresh or not at all. See more »

Trivia:

During the filming of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), fellow actor and real-life psychiatrist Dean R. Brooks diagnosed Redfield with leukemia (this was long before the days of bone marrow transplants) and gave him 18 months to live. Redfield died 18 months later, pretty much to the day. See more »
