Solidly built, boyishly handsome American leading-man Christopher George was the son of Greek immigrants. Weaned on stories of the legendary Greek heroes, Christopher and his brother Nick (later a prominent fashion photographer) both quit high school to join the Marines. Completing his education after his tour of duty, George acted in numerous TV commercials, winning a New York Film Festival award for his efforts. After appearing in plays like A Streetcar Named Desire and films like Howard Hawks' El Dorado (1965), George became a TV star by virtue of the weekly wartime adventure series The Rat Patrol ('66-'68). He later starred in the science-fiction series The Immortal (70-71) then returned to filmmaking. In his last years, George was a frequent guest on the religious talk-show circuit. Christopher George died of a heart attack at the age of 54; he was survived by his wife and frequent co-star, actress Lynda Day George.
