Biography

Most actors count themselves lucky if they land one iconic role during their career. Charismatic actor Guy Williams was more fortunate than most--not only did he have a successful modeling career before turning to acting, but he portrayed both the swashbuckling masked hero in the popular Disney series "Zorro," and the commanding father of the galaxy-traveling Robinson family in the campy sci-fi hit "Lost in Space." In addition, Williams landed a recurring role on the popular Western series "Bonanza," and portrayed the legendary title role of Captain Sindbad in the 1963 European action adventure film "Captain Sindbad."
