Darryl Hickman ACTOR

Darryl Hickman was born on July 28th, 1931 in Hollywood, California with the middle name Gerard.  He and his younger brother, Dwayne Hickman both began their careers as actors when they were children.  His brother became more remembered as time went on due to the hit TV show "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis", however, Darryl was more popular and considered a better actor when the boys were children.
Some of his earlier roles were in such films as, "The Grapes of Wrath" (1940), "Men of Boys Town", (1941) "The Human Comedy" (1943), "Leave Her to Heaven" (1945) and "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" (1956) starring Kirk Douglas
Along with working as a film actor, Darryl was also appeared on such television series as, "Gunsmoke", "Our Gang", "Pulitzer Prize Playhouse", "The Range Rider" and "Sky King".  Before he had even turned twenty one years old, he had already worked on over one hundred films.
Making the transition to adult actor from child actor was not too difficult for him, however he did take a break from acting in 1951 to join a monastery, but it did not work well for him so he returned to Hollywood.  He appeared on the television series, "The Lone Ranger" (1951-1953), "Mark Saber" (1952), "Sky King" (1972) and such films as, "Destination Gobi" (1953), "Island in the Sky" (1953) starring John Wayne and "Sea of Lost Ships" (1953).
While still working as an actor he was also pursuing a college degree at Loyola University and took a brief break from school and acting to serve in the military during the Korean war.
After he completed his military service he returned to acting and as his career progressed his brother was gaining a huge amount of popularity working in television however, roles were becoming less available to Darryl.  He did, though, continue to find work and some of his latest roles were on such series as, "Wild Fire" (1986), "Sky Commanders" (1987), "A Pup Named Scooby-Doo" (1988), doing the voice over work, "Baywatch" (1996), "The Nanny" (1997-1999) and such films as, "Sharky's Machine" (1981).
Later on in his career he decided to veer away from the acting side of the industry and began working as a program executive.  Daryl also worked as an acting coach on the side.  He is currently married to his second wife, Lynda Farmer Hickman.  He was married once before to Pamela Lincoln whom he wed in 1959 and after having two sons together the marriage came to an end in 1982.  In 1985 his youngest son, Justin, who was only nineteen at the time, sadly, committed suicide.
