Edward Laurence Albert
The son of TV and film star Eddie Albert and dancer-actress Margo, Edward Albert has worked steadily as an actor since the early 1970s. He made an adolescent debut in the feature "Fool Killer" (1965), then went back to school and didn't resume his career until undertaking the role of the blind hero opposite Goldie Hawn in the film version of Broadway's "Butterflies Are Free" (1972), winning a Golden Globe Award as Most Promising Male Newcomer. Albert went on to portray Liv Ullmann's youthful lover in "40 Carats" (1973) and appeared in "Midway" (1976) and "The Domino Principle (1977) before moving to Europe for " . . . a self-designed on-the-job training course. It gave me the freedom to choose roles without worrying how it would affect my career." After acting in the critically-acclaimed "Un Taxi mauve/The Purple Taxi" (1977) in France, he returned to the USA where his feature films have included "The Greek Tycoon" (1978, as Anthony Quinn's son), "When Time Ran Out" (1980), "Butterfly" (1981), "Getting Even" (1986) and the "The Underachievers" (1987).
