Biography for Doug McClure

Educated at U.C.L.A., this blond leading man long made a career of apparent agelessness. He played one young sidekick after another through numerous movies and one TV series after another, playing twentiesh roles into his late forties. Although he made more than five hundred appearances in his career (counting TV episodes separately), he is undoubtedly best remembered as Trampas in the series "The Virginian" and "The Men from Shiloh" and the movie "Backtrack!" McClure was fighting cancer the last couple of years before his death; despite this, he continued working, appearing in the "Maverick" movie as one of the gamblers, as well as in "Riders in the Storm" and episodes of "Burke's Law" and "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues" which didn't appear until after his death. McClure got a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame shortly before his death.
