Lin McCarthy was a World War II veteran who used his G.I. Bill to study acting at Los Angeles' Geller's Theater Workshop. The popular character actor found early success on the Broadway stage before graduating to films with such efforts as Yellowneck (1955) and The D.I. (1957). Born in Norfolk, VA, in February of 1918, McCarthy made his earliest stage appearances in such plays as The Chase, as well as a touring production of Mr. Roberts. After marrying Mr. Roberts co-star Loretta Daye and relocating to Beverly Hills, McCarthy found subsequent television roles on such small screen drama series as Studio One and Philco Television Playhouse. He had an increasingly prevalent presence on television, and would make himself familiar to viewers with frequent appearances on Quincy, The Fugitive, and later Lou Grant and Knight Rider. Retiring from acting in 1984, McCarthy remained in Beverly Hills, CA, until his death from pneumonia in November of 2002. He was 84 years old.
