Initially a film and TV actor, Eric Laneuville transitioned into a respected television director working on some of the medium's highest profile shows. He began acting in junior high-school musicals and made guest appearances on TV series in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The critically acclaimed show "Room 222" offered him his first recurring role on a series playing one of the students at Walt Whitman High. A role in the 1971 science-fiction film "The Omega Man" starring Charlton Heston also raised his profile. He continued to make TV guest appearances throughout the rest of the decade, including three episodes of "Sanford and Son." His break as an actor came in the form of the ensemble hospital drama "St. Elsewhere," playing Luther Hawkins, an orderly who became a paramedic as the show progressed. It was on "St. Elsewhere" that he began his directing career and once his involvement in the show ended he shifted his focus from acting to directing. He directed episodes of "Midnight Caller," "Doogie Howser, M.D.," "L.A. Law," "I'll Fly Away" and numerous TV movies throughout the 1990s. He remained very active in the 2000s helming multiple episodes of the hit show "Lost" and over a dozen episodes of the supernatural drama "Ghost Whisperer" between 2005 and 2010. He also earned multiple Emmy nominations for directing and won for his work on "I'll Fly Away."
