3He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6922 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on November 13, 1986.
4He was battling lung cancer while filming Castle: The Blue Butterfly (2012). It ended up being his final screen appearance; he died six months after the episode aired.

8Had two daughters with Shelby Grant: Shannon Everett and Katherine Everett.
9Was a client from the early to mid-1960s of noted talent agent Henry Willson, noted for his penchant for making stars--and changing names--of young, good-looking male actors, such as Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter and Troy Donahue. Willson was the one who renamed Everett and signed him to Warner Bros.
10At one time in 1966, he and Richard Chamberlain were the only actors left under contract to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Eventually, Everett became the very last contract player at the studio.
11Changed his name to Chad Everett because, he said, he got tired of explaining his real name, "Raymon-no-D, Cramton-no-P".

13Best known by the public for his starring role as Dr. Joe Gannon on the medical drama Medical Center (1969).
