Biography for Tim O'Connor

Best known to television viewers as Elliott Carson, in the long-running TV series, "Peyton Place" (1964), Tim O'Connor began his acting career with the Goodman Memorial Theatre in Chicago just after World War II. Moving to New York in the early 1950's, he became one of television's busiest actors during the medium's dramatic coming-of-age. He appeared frequently on the "The United States Steel Hour" (1953) and became a mainstay of the "Family Classics" series, starring in such productions as "The Three Musketeers" and "A Tale of Two Cities". Until 1964, when "Peyton Place" (1964) became a runaway hit, O'Connor lived on an island in the center of Glenwild Lake near Bloomingdale, New Jersey. He soon found that commuting between the East Coast and Los Angeles was too wearing, and moved to California. O'Connor settled in Santa Monica, a few short blocks from the Pacific, and established himself as one of filmdom's most versatile performers.

A secondary actor, Tim O’Connor has always stood out for his long and rigid figure. Born in 1927 in Chicago, it was not until 1949 to see it for the first time on a screen in the horrific comedy, Master Minds. He will then appear a second time in a TV movie, ten years later, after a career in the theater which formed him to great classical roles. This explains his presence on many TV movies inspired by many masterpieces of literature such as the 3 musketeers or the Treasure Island. For the series, he started in 1965 in Peyton Place, then in 1978 in Wheels before flying to the 25th century with Buck Rogers. Finally in 1994, he joined the cast of General Hospital. We have also noticed it in certain episodes of Alfred Hitchcock presents, the 4th dimension, the Fugitive, Cannon, the streets of San Francisco, Mash, Wonder Woman, Lou Grant, K2000, the All Risks, Arabesque or Star Trek, The Next Generation. In all, more than forty appearances. His last appearance on the big screen dates back to 1992 in the parodic is there a cop to save the president?

Tim O'Connor is an American actor born August 29, 1927 in Evanston, Illinois. He has played in numerous productions in the cinema, on television and on stage during his career over 60 years.

O'Connor began his acting career in the 1950s, playing in plays in New York. He also played in television productions, especially in episodes of popular series like "Perry Mason" and "Drôles de Dames".

O'Connor was also a member of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and taught the art of comedy at the University of Southern California. In addition to his acting career, he also wrote and produced several plays.

In summary, Tim O'Connor is an American talented actor who has played in many cinematographic, television and theatrical productions during his career over 60 years. His career led him to work with renowned actors and to teach the art of comedy to students.
