Perhaps renowned for his portrayal of Lars Hanson about the favorite TV series Small House for the Prairie, he’s also remembered for his recurring roles about Lassie, Gunsmoke, The Virginian, and Bonanza. Before you begin his career like a display actor, he made an appearance inside a Broadway creation of THE PERSON Who Had All of the Good fortune and participated in such radio dramas as The March of your time and Lorenzo Jones. He passed away suddenly shortly after showing up in just a little House for the Prairie show where his personality also passed on. He was raised in NEW YORK as the kid of Swedish-born parents. His 1st relationship — to Virginia Hanscom Swenson — led to four kids; his relationship to celebrity Joan Tompkins created no kids and lasted until his loss of life in 1978. He made an appearance with Joseph Cotten in the 1967 film Brighty from the Grand Canyon.
