#Fact
1 While appearing in Star Trek (1966)'s second pilot episode, Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before (1966), he was required to wear heavy silver contact lenses for his character. Lockwood had difficulty wearing the lenses as they were heavy, thick, and only had one tiny hole for him to see through. He claimed, afterward, that the lenses were to blame for his later vision problems.
2 Friend of actor Billy Lockwood, great-nephew of Joshua Logan.
3 Attended UCLA on a football scholarship.
4 Got his name from legendary director Joshua Logan, whose middle name is Lockwood, because no one could pronounce Gary's real last name: Yurosek. A generation later his daughter actress Samantha Lockwood is best friends with actor Billy Lockwood, who is related to the very man who gave Gary his first job!.
5 Ironically, Lockwood's Frank Poole character (from 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)) learns about Star Trek's success in the novel "3001: A Final Oddyssey".
6 Father of daughter Samantha Lockwood with Denise DuBarry.
7 Best remembered today as astronaut Frank Poole in the Stanley Kubrick futuristic epic 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).
8 One of his most memorable TV roles, and one of the most memorable on the series, was on the Love, American Style (1969) episode, Love, American Style: Love and the Doorknob/Love and the Phone Booth (1969), in which he plays a guy who is told his mouth is too small. To test it out, he accidentally wraps his mouth around a doorknob and gets stuck! His co-star in that episode was, none other than, his wife at the time, Stefanie Powers.
9 Reliable over the years for playing boyish-faced bullies in westerns and police dramas.
10 Appeared in the Star Trek (1966) pilot episode, Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before (1966), and has since appeared at many of the "Star Trek" conventions. He recently attended the Trek Expo in Tulsa, Oklahoma (2002).
11 Broke into the entertainment field as a stunt man and stand-in for actor Anthony Perkins.

1 I've been very fortunate. I've played football, I've crashed cars, I chased a lot of girls, I've got a great education, I've done stunt work, and I got to work with many wonderful people in my career. What more could I have asked for?
2 It's kind of what life is all about. If you don't have some of that recognition between now and the time you die, it wouldn't be a hell of a lot of fun being here. But I've been blessed throughout my life to have those kinds of accolades. I've just been lucky.
3 Chicks love dough. Any kind. Cookies, muffins, and money.
4 I'm an actor. I've done a little bit of everything. An actor is kind of like a cowboy. The show's over on Sunday and then you ride off to the next gig. Basically, that's what show business is all about.
