Mini Bio (1)

A native New Yorker, he was born to Scottish/Irish parents. David Patrick Wilson was raised and schooled on Long Island (Northport HS, Class of 1967). A scholar athlete, he gave up sports in his senior year to star in his school's production of "South Pacific," opposite Broadway legend, Patti Lupone. David went on to attend Columbia University in Manhattan, briefly (2 yrs). Bitten by the acting bug, he left the Ivy in the spring of '69 to attend The Neighborhood Playhouse where he studied with the legendary, Sanford Meisner and his devoted disciple, William Esper. After graduating, he launched his career on the stages of New York (Public Theater) and Chicago (The Ivanhoe), in film ("Going Home," "The Seven-Ups") and soaps ("Secret Storm") before moving on to LA in '74. He later extended his stage, film and TV career to include work in all three disciplines in Stockholm, Sweden and Tel Aviv, Israel. He is the proud father of five (3 girls; 2 boys) and has 5 grandchildren. Still in love with acting and singing (he trained under 'American Idol' coach, Seth Riggs), he has added screen writing, directing and producing to his many professional successes.
