Peter Fonda

Actor

Born - 23 February 1940, New York City, USA
Died - 16 August 2019

Tall, rangy, fair-haired American actor with long, lean features, the son of Henry Fonda, brother of Jane and father of Bridget Fonda. At first in bland leading man roles, he changed his image with his wild-haired, bike-riding appearance in Easy Rider (1969) and its 'wild angel' predecessors, but, despite some interesting leading roles, never quite became a box-office force. Kept busy, though, making almost 100 films: Tammy and the Doctor (1963), Lilith (1964), The Young Lovers (1964), The Wild Angels (1966, The Trip (1967), Spirits of the Dead (1968), The Hired Hand (1971), Dirty Mary Crazy Larry (1974), Race With the Devil (1975), Futureworld (1976), Outlaw Blues (1977), Wanda Nevada (1979), The Cannonball Run (1981), Dance of the Dwarfs (1983), Certain Fury (1985), Hawken's Breed (1988), Enemy (1990), Deadfall (1993), Nadja (1994), Escape from L.A. (1996), Ulee's Gold (1997), The Limey (1999), Wooly Boys (2001), Ghost Rider (2007), 3: 10 to Yuma (2007), Wild Hogs (2007), The Trouble With Bliss (2011), Copperhead (2013), Jesse James: Lawman (2015), The Ballad of Lefty Brown (2017), The Magic Hours (2018), The Last Full Measure (2019), his last, and many more. Twice Oscar-nominated, he was divorced from his (second) wife Becky after 35 years and married again in 2011. He died from respiratory problems following lung cancer.
