Biography

A sturdy, handsome player of stage and screen, Frank Converse went from heartthrob to character player, easily shifting from playing dashing policemen to fathers, stalwart men of order and even the occasional ne'er-do-well. He is perhaps best recalled as the lead in the short-lived mystery "Coronet Blue" (CBS, 1967) and as Detective Johnny Corso, the younger member of the team, on "N.Y.P.D." (ABC, 1967-69).
