Biography

Legendary character actor Logan Ramsey's introduction to performing came during World War II, when he would participate in entertainment programs, called "smokers," on board the aircraft carrier USS Block Island, where he served as a naval pilot. At the end of the war, he went to live in New York City to study with renowned acting coach Lee Strasberg. Ramsey's first television credits came on the anthology series "The Ford Theatre Hour" in 1948 and "Kraft Theatre" in 1951. His Broadway debut came in 1950 in a performance of George Bernard Shaw's "The Devil's Disciple." Although he made some film appearances, such as playing a doctor with a gambling debt in 1967's "Banning" and mob boss John Witter in 1973's "Walking Tall," Ramsey was primarily a television actor. He appeared on episodes of countless classic programs, such as "Route 66," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," "Star Trek," and "Knight Rider." Regrettably for him, however, he became typecast: throughout his 50-year career, his roles were rarely good guys, but rather villains, rednecks, and assorted creeps.
