A former American football star, Olsen was inducted into the sport's Hall of Fame in 1982 after playing for the Los Angeles Rams, where he was part of the Fearsome Foursome, a formidable defensive force in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
But he really made his mark as Jonathan Garvey in episodes of Little House on the Prairie between 1977 and 1981. That led to lead roles in Father Murphy in the early 1980s and Aaron's Way in 1988 and 1989.
Olsen was also a respected sports broadcaster in America. »
Football Hall of Fame member and actor Merin Olsen has died. His death was announced by his brother, Orrin, who said that he'd been being treated for mesothelioma.
After a successful time playing college football, Olsen began playing for the Los Angeles Rams in 1962 as part of the National Football League. He was one of the leading defensive players of his era and missed only two games in his 15 years with the NFL. Following his time on the field, Olsen went to work as a commentator for NBC throughout 1980s.
