Lanky blond actor Larry Bryggman is perhaps best known to daytime TV viewers as the dedicated (and formerly villainous) Dr. John Dixon on "As the World Turns," a role he has played since 1969 and which brought him two Daytime Emmy Awards. Discerning theatergoers in NYC, however, may recall the actor for his many appearances on and off Broadway, notably with the New York Shakespeare Festival. Since his 1962 debut, Bryggman has rarely not found a stage role to supplement his daytime work. In 1993, he was honored with an OBIE Award for "sustained excellence of work" and the following year he received a Tony nomination for playing the reliable Howard Bevans in the Broadway revival of "Picnic." The actor has also frequently appeared in support of star Al Pacino, dating from their mutual association with the Theatre Company of Boston in the late 1960s. Pacino, in turn, included Bryggman in the 1996 documentary, which focused on actors performing Shakespeare's "Richard III."
