Peter Breck


Born - 29 March 1929, Haverhill, Massachusetts, USA
Died - 6 February 2012

Tall, dark, good-looking and solidly built, this reliable American actor is best remembered for his work as the short-fused Nick, middle son of western matriarch Barbara Stanwyck in the TV series The Big Valley, from 1965 to 1970. Mixing semi-leads with beefy supporting roles, Breck worked in TV from the mid 1950s, but there were a few films in between his prolific work for the small screen: Thunder Road (1958), I Want to Live! (1958), The Wild and the Innocent (1959), The Beatniks (1960), Portrait of a Mobster (1961), Lad: A Dog (1962), Hootenanny Hoot (1963), Shock Corridor (1963), The Glory Guys (1965), Benji (1974), The Sword and the Sorcerer (1982), Highway 61 (1991), Decoy (1995), Lulu (1996), Enemy Action (1999) and Jiminy Glick in Lalawood (2004), his last. He suffered from dementia in his closing years.
