James Olson

Actor

Born - 8 October 1930, Evanston, Illinois, USA
Died - 17 April 2022

Tall, very fair-haired American actor of fresh complexion and fine-boned features. A floppy-locked juvenile lead of the 1950s, he reappeared a decade later with high forehead and receding hair, looks that qualified him for cerebral star roles over the next few years. With his star days done he kept busy, but retired from acting in the early 1990s. Film credits include appearances in The Sharkfighters (1956), End As a Man/The Strange One (1957), The Three Sisters (1966), Rachel, Rachel (1968), The Stalking Moon (1968), Moon Zero Two (1969), Crescendo (1970), The Andromeda Strain (1971), Wild Rovers (1971), The Groundstar Conspiracy (1972), The Sex Symbol (1974), The Mafu Cage (1978), Ragtime (1981), Amityville II: The Possession (1982), Commando (1985) and Rachel River (1987), his last.
