Biography

Sonny Shroyer is a character actor who has been active in film and television for over 35 years. Born on August 28, 1935, in Valdosta, Georgia, a small town near the Florida border, Shroyer is most known for his role as Enos, the deputy on "The Dukes of Hazzard", a southern comedy about the Duke boys of Hazzard County. Shroyer got his start on the big screen in 1973, making cameos in the dramas "Payday" and "Sixteen", followed by another appearance in the 1974, Burt Reynolds prison comedy, "The Longest Yard". Shroyer appeared on an episode of the landmark slave drama, "Roots", in 1977, before landing the role of his career, as Deputy Enos Strate on "The Dukes of Hazzard", a series about a couple of southern good ol' boys and their speedy car, the General Lee. Shroyer was in 98 episodes of the show, through 1985, and in 1980 "Enos" was spun off into his own series, which ran 17 episodes, into 1981. Shroyer reprised his career role on the diner sitcom "Alice", in 1983, as well as in "The Dukes of Hazzard" reunion shows in 1997 and 2000. Back on the big screen in his later years, Shroyer made cameos in "A Love Song for Bobby Long", and "Ray", in 2004, and had a major supporting role in the Dean Cain-starring drama "The Way Home" in 2010.
