Pierce Lyden ACTOR


Pierce Lyden was born on January 8th, 1908 in Hildreth, Nebraska.  As a young boy he learned how to ride a horse bareback as his father worked as a horse buyer for the United States Army.  He grew up in a family that struggled financially but still was able to study at the University of Nebraska after graduating from Naponee High School as well as later studied at the Emerson College of Oratory in Boston.
His career began as a stock performer performing in a number of stage productions in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Soon, Hollywood began to take notice of him and he made his way west.  
Some of his early credits include appearing in the serials called, 'Cliffhangers' along with a large number of other feature films and television roles.  He is also well known for appearing in a total of 150 episodes of "The Cisco Kid" starring Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo.
Other television credits include, "The Lone Ranger" starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, "Wild Bill Hickok" starring Guy Madison and Andy Devine, "Space Patrol", "Hopalong Cassidy" starring William Boyd, "Tales of the Texas Rangers", "Tales of Wells Fargo" starring Dale Robertson, "Highway Patrol" starring Broderick Crawford, "Bat Masterson" starring Gene Barry and his last role in 1962 on, "Cheyenne" starring Clint Walker
He retired from the industry in 1962 and resided in Orange, California.  He married three times and was widowed twice.  He had one son who passed away in 1988.  Ten years later, he lost his life on October 10th, 1998 in Orange, California after suffering from cancer.
Pierce Lyden has been honored with a star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame and was as given the, "Buffalo Bill Award" in 1997 from the State of Nebraska.  He soon relocated to Hollywood and began appearing in a number of westerns, due mostly to his talent of horseback riding which he excelled at as a youngster.
