Biography

American actor Gary Lockwood has forged a lengthy film and television career distinguished by his work with legendary talents like Stanley Kubrick, Elia Kazan, and even Elvis Presley. The ruggedly handsome Van Nuys native, a former UCLA footballer and stunt double for Anthony Perkins, was fresh off a notable appearance in the Presley-starring juvenile delinquent drama "Wild in the Country" (1961) when he landed a supporting role in Kazan's Oscar-winning romance "Splendor in the Grass". Lockwood followed up with several high-profile TV roles, then teamed with Presley again in the 1963 musical caper "It Happened at the World's Fair". Within a year, Lockwood was starring in his own series on NBC, as Lt. Bill Tiberius Rice on "The Lieutenant"; the Marine corps drama was created by Norman Felton ("The Man from U.N.C.L.E.") and Gene Roddenberry, the visionary producer behind the landmark sci-fi series "Star Trek". "The Lieutenant" lasted only a season, but one indelible appearance on "Star Trek", portraying a Star Fleet commander driven mad by mysteriously endowed mental powers, earned Lockwood a place in science fiction history; that legacy was extended further by his role as the doomed Dr. Frank Poole in Kubrick's classic "2001: A Space Odyssey". Through the '70s and '80s, Lockwood continued to bring a sly, sturdy presence to a variety of TV roles on shows from "The Six Million Dollar Man" to "Hart to Hart" (opposite then-ex-wife Stefanie Powers), carving out a niche playing gruff men of authority.
