Blond, wavy-haired actor Christopher Rich's movie star good looks landed him roles as Prince Charming and dashing but dumb news anchor Miller Redfield, but he proved himself more than just a pretty face with a consistent and varied acting career. Rich started out on stage and made his Broadway debut starring as Dionysius in the 1980 Circle in the Square production of "The Bacchus". By the following year, he was a regular on the NBC daytime drama "Another World", playing Sandy Cory, an audience favorite harboring a secret. Though his character was earmarked to be the first gay man in daytime television, producers changed their minds and Rich lost an opportunity to be a very memorable player in soaps. Nevertheless, he made the most of the role until his departure in 1985. Following up his soap success with a string of failed pilots, Rich finally landed a starring regular role in "The Charmings" (ABC, 1987-88), a sitcom about a fairy tale family trapped in contemporary suburbia. Playing the legendary husband of Snow White offered the actor the opportunity to do comedy, and he rose to the challenge with an often inspired turn as the handsome but brainless patriarch of a fish-out-of-water clan.
