Biography

As a cute, juvenile lead, Fred Savage was capable of appearing wise beyond his years-a talent put to good use in the feature "Vice Versa" (1988), the story of a father (Judge Reinhold) and son who switch bodies. Other feature credits include his debut in "The Boy Who Could Fly" (1986) and as the grandson of Peter Falk to whom the tale of "The Princess Bride" (1987) is related. Savage is best remembered, however, as the perceptive and thoughtful kid on the popular drama, "The Wonder Years" (ABC, 1988-93). He has appeared in a handful of TV-movies including an affecting turn as a youth with muscular dystrophy who calls attention to the abuse and neglect in the nursing home to which he is confined in "When You Remember Me" (ABC, 1990). In a change of pace, Savage played the abusive boyfriend of a high school student (Candace Cameron) in "No One Would Tell" (NBC, 1996). The following year, the twenty-something actor returned to series TV as a recent college graduate negotiating the minefields of corporate life in the NBC sitcom "Working" (1997-99).
