Known for his good looks and versatility as an actor, Charles Aidman appeared in a wide variety of films and television shows throughout his career. As a young man, Aidman set out to become a lawyer, attending DePaul University in Chicago. These plans changed when a drama teacher sought him out and cast him in a play. His passion for acting ignited, Aidman began his onscreen career in 1952 with "Goodyear Playhouse," a series of televised plays. His ability to act across different genres landed him roles in projects as varied as the first incarnation of "The Twilight Zone" and a co-starring role in the 1962 Korean War drama "War Hunt"--performances that solidified his position as a coveted acting commodity. In 1971 Aidman starred as Walter Matthau's son in the award-winning dramedy "Kotch," directed by Jack Lemmon. The scope of projects with which Aidman was involved is impressive; perhaps the most unique was a co-starring role in the 1981 musical "Zoot Suit," as the public defender for a group of young Latinos. Though quite prolific in front of the camera, Aidman has also been recognized for his voice acting. He narrated the 1985 revival of "The Twilight Zone" for over 30 episodes, his last major role. He died of cancer in 1993.
