who is Robert fuller?
A horse rancher and retired actor, Robert Fuller was born Leonard Leroy Lee on July 29, 1933. Throughout the years, he has starred on television, guest-starring primarily on western programs, and has also appeared in a number of movies, including: The Brain from Planet Arous, Teenage Thunder (both of which were filmed in 1957), Return of the Seven (1966), Incident at Phantom Hill (1969), and The Hard Ride (1971). In his five decades of television, Fuller was known for his deep, raspy voice and was familiar to television viewers throughout the 1960s from his co-star roles on the popular 1960s Western series Laramie as Jess Harper and Wagon Train as Cooper Smith. As well as playing Dr. Kelly Brackett in the 1970s medical/action drama Emergency!, he was also well known for his starring role in the film.
Robert fuller’s Early life; Christine fuller’s father
in 1933, fuller was born in troy, new york, as Leonard Leroy Lee, the only child of Elizabeth Lee, a dance instructor. Betty, who was married to Robert Simpson Sr. before he was born, had been working there for a number of years. When he was six, his family moved to Key West, Florida, where he was already known by a nickname of “Buddy”, and took the name Robert Simpson, Jr. As a young child, he had a strong interest in acting and dancing. His parents owned a dance school there. It was also his family that moved to Chicago, Illinois, where they lived for one year before they moved back to Florida. As Simpson, Jr. was then still known, he attended Miami Military School for his fifth and sixth grades, followed by Key West High School for his ninth grade.
He dropped out of school in 1948, at the age of 14, because he disliked school and was doing poorly there. When he was 16, he traveled with his family to Hollywood, California, where he worked as a stuntman for his first job as a teenager. In addition, he worked at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, where he began working as a doorman, rising to the position of assistant manager by the age of 18. In response to the advice of friends, Simpson, Jr. became a member of the Screen Actors Guild, embarked on a career as an actor, and changed his name to Robert Fuller, the name he was known by at the height of his fame.
Early career of Robert fuller; father of Christine fuller
a small part of Fuller’s early career was as an extra in the 1952 film Above and Beyond. Upon completing this role, he worked in many other projects as an extra, including I Love Melvin, which was his first movie role. He also played a minor role in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, starring Marilyn Monroe, and Calamity Jane, starring Doris Day.
After the war ended, Fuller served in the United States Army for a period of time. He returned to the United States in 1955 after serving a tour of duty in Korea. As Fuller had been considering giving up acting, he decided to attend Richard Boone’s acting classes at the suggestion of Chuck Courtney, his best friend. Boone suggested Fuller study under Sanford Meisner’s tutelage at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City. In 1956, Fuller was cast as a character in the film Friendly Persuasion, with his future Laramie co-star John Smith and another close friend, Doug McClure, also playing a role.
In the 1956 episode “The Comeback” in the religion anthology series, Crossroads, Fuller played the role of a former soldier in the show. Throughout the movie, Don DeFore portrays C. E. “Stoney” Jackson, the Reverend of a church, who offers spiritual insight to Lou Brissie (Chuck Connors), who is recuperating from the wounds he sustained during World War II so that he can return to professional baseball playing. In the film, Grant Withers played the role of Coach Whitey Martin and Crossroads regular Robert Carson played the role of coach.
the decades 1980s and the 1990s
in 1980, fuller starred as the title character in the pilot episode of a CBS Western series called Jake’s Way, along with actors who were younger and newer than Fuller, including Ben Lemon, Kristin Griffith, and Stephen McNaughton; the series failed to sell well. As the 1990s approached, he played supporting roles in more than 20 television shows, including The Love Boat, The Fall Guy (in two episodes that reunited him with Lee Majors, who met Fuller on The Big Valley), Murder, She Wrote (in which Fuller had the opportunity to be reunited with Eddie Albert, who guest starred with him on Laramie), Matt Houston, Tour of Duty, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr., JAG, and Diagnosis: Murder in an episode where he was reunited with Randolph Mantooth who played his Emergency! co-star.
On Walker, Texas Ranger, with Chuck Norris and Clarence Gilyard, he starred as Jess’ supposed great-great-grandson Wade Harper at the end of his career. In addition to his role as Wade, he played another character in the same series (in the episode “Last of a Breed”) before he was
cast as Wade. There were only a few of his films that were
made, including a small part as a doctor in the comedy film Repossessed (1990) and a cameo appearance as a poker player in Maverick (1994).
Robert fuller’s Personal life; Christine fuller’s father
in addition to being an accomplished singer, Fulller played several “bandstand” gigs with Bill Aken’s Los Nomadas rock group at Whiskey Flats holiday festivities. A few years ago, he performed a vocal rendition of the 1950s hit song “Caribbean” as grand marshal for the local Memorial Day parade, singing the same verse over and over. After the band asked him to tell them he knew the first verse of the song, he told them he only knew the first verse. In 1967, he recorded a record in Munich, Germany for the band. The majority of the songs on this album were
recorded in German, including “Ein Einsamer Cowboy” (“Lonesome Cowboy”), “Adios Mexicana” (“Goodbye Mexican Girl”), “Uberall auf der Welt” (“All Over the World”), and “Girls Are Like Flowers”.
It has been
reported that Fuller was
married for 22 years to Patricia Lee Lyon, whom he married on December 20, 1962 and to whom he had three children: Rob, Christine, and Patrick. They divorced in 1984; Lyon died from cancer in 1994.
As of the 1990s, Fuller had mostly retired from the film industry and has been
married to actress Jennifer Savidge, known for her role in NBC’s St. Elsewhere series since May 19, 2001. It was through Savidge that Fuller became friends with her acting coach, Norman Lloyd, who played Dr. Daniel Auschlander, a veteran producer and actor.
On March 18, 1990, Fuller, along with his longtime friend James Drury, was
invited to be a part of the celebrity panel for the annual Festival of the West, which is a public/private party where fans can ask Fuller questions about his roles in Laramie, Wagon Train, and other Westerns. It is also
included in the book that he tells the story of how he became a cowboy. There are country-western dancing, lunch, and dinner included at his party.
As a result of the Emergency! Convention ’98, held from October 9 to October 11, 1998, Fuller was
reunited with all of the remaining cast members, which took place at the Burbank Airport Hilton in Burbank, California. All of the main actors attended except for Julie London, who had suffered a stroke in 1995, and her husband Bobby Troup attended only four months before he died himself. It was an opportunity for Fuller and the rest of the cast and crew to answer fans’ questions and reminisce about their time together, when the castmates said they got along well during their time together.
At the Festival of the West on March 10, 2010, Fuller presented James Drury with the Cowboy Spirit Award, as well as paying homage to the late John Smith, who passed away from heart problems and cirrhosis of the liver 15 years earlier on January 25, 1995. Throughout the tribute, he gave a detailed account of Smith’s life, including their on-screen and off-screen bond during their time together on Laramie. He had also attended the Festival of the West for two seasons before his declining health made it impossible for him to attend any more seasons.
In an event sponsored by Bob Terry in Azle near Fort Worth, Texas on October 9, 2010, Fuller, James Drury, and Don Reynolds participated in the Wild West Toy Show. The event promotes horse riding, as well as the sale and exchange of Western merchandise.
During the month of September 2012, Fuller, along with a host of other western celebrities attended the first-ever Spirit of the Cowboy Western Festival held at Chestnut Square in McKinney, Texas. It is
billed as the biggest and best Western festival to be
held in North Texas.
It was in the middle of 2004 when Fuller and his wife Jennifer Savidge moved from Los Angeles to North Texas to raise horses on a ranch. After urging Fuller to move to Cooke County, his neighbor and long-term friend Alex Cord did so. It was in 1961 when Cord made his television acting debut on the set of Laramie that the two met for the first time.
In 2009, Fuller’s stepfather, Robert Simpson, Sr., passed away.
Fuller celebrated his 80th birthday with his fans and his wife on July 29, 2013 in Libby, Montana, where he was vacationing on a ranch with his wife and other family members.
