Successfully fought lung cancer in 1993, and had to have a significant portion of his lung removed, as a result of years of heavy smoking

Along with Larry Hagman, he is one of only two "Dallas" (1978) cast members to stay with the series throughout its entire run.

Appeared in almost all of the 357 episodes of "Dallas" (1978).

Was initially cast as Ray Krebbs on "Dallas" (1978) before being given the role of Cliff Barnes instead.

Not only were he and Larry Hagman both the only two actors to be on the entire run of Dallas, but post-Dallas both actors faced death and beat the odds, Ken with lung cancer and Larry with liver problems



Spouse : Cheryl Paris (21 October 1994 - 2004) (divorced) 1 child, Ava Fox (15 April 1986 - 1993) (divorced) 3 children

His father was a doctor and his mother was a nurse.
