A great character actor who could adopt to many roles. He helped make Edge Of Night one of the classiest soaps ever, along with Henry Slesar's great scripts. Same with Radio Mystery Theatre!

Other credits include Pat Abbott on Adventures of the Abbotts and Harry Peters on David Harding Counterspy.

I love this man's voice! He was a talented actor and always very solid, but I always feel that the perfect fit for him is a character who is sophisticated, smart, usually wealthy or powerful, and refined. He really shines best in those roles.
