Personal Quote:

[When responded about how he got along well with the Falcon Crest (1981) cast, esp. Jane Wyman, who played Angela Channing]: All of the people. I enjoyed working with all of them. Jane Wyman, Jane was wonderful,... Susan Sullivan, so many of the people... and I got to play with so many, like Kim Novak, some of the old stars, Lana Turner, Gina Lollobrigida, Leslie Caron. It was quite wonderful. See more »
