Robert Mandan

Robert Mandan, who was born in Clever, Missouri, on February 2, 1932, opted for an acting career after completing his education at Pomona College in Claremont, California and at New York University. Having studied.dramatic art with Lee Strassberg, Herbert Berghof, Allan Miller and Dan Marek, Mandan developed into a performer of rare versatility.

While in New York, he appeared in "The Defenders," "Kraft Television Theatre," "The U.S. Steel Hour" and "Armstrong Circle Theatre." Having devoted himself almost exclusively to a television career, his stand-by for the Gig Young role in "There's A Girl in My Soup" marked Mandan's Broadway debut. He also appeared in nine off-Broadway productions, including a revival of Sartre's "No Exit," "Julius Caesar," "King Lear," "The Trojan Woman" and "Much Ado About Nothing."

Robert is hardly a stranger to the continuing drama, having played the leading man in television's longest-running serial, "Search for Tomorrow."

After he portrayed the producer in the highly-acclaimed play, "Applause," the role he re-created in London for telecast in the United States, Mandan left New York for the West Coast.

Mandan's television credits include "Cannon," "F.B.I.," "Mannix," "The Streets of San Francisco," "Most Wanted," "Kojak," "Police Story," "Phyllis," "All in the Family," "Maude" and "Sanford and Son." He co-starred in the series entitled "Caribe" and also appears in the theatrical film, "MacArthur."

The tall brown-eyed thespian estimates that he has made more than 1,000 appearances on TV.
