This is episode 1 of a 3 hour interview I had with Roy Thinnes on 10/20/15. I've decided to divide it into 12 segments to make it easier for fans to digest.
This segment talks about Roy's early career, from his teen years as an aspiring journalist to his first forays into show business leading to his first network television role, Chicago 212, an unsold pilot later used as part of a TV anthology series.
Roy is best known for his starring role in the 2 seasons of The Invaders, a drama about the human reaction to an alien invasion that has been imitated so many times since its inception in 1967. He was also the first Dr. Brewer on General Hospital, helping to launch that long running Soap. Another soap Roy starred in was One Life to Live, a series where he has the uncanny and unique distinction of having played 2 characters who were killed off. "I did 3 times on ONE life to live!" - Roy Thinnes. The producers felt Alex Crown didn't die hard enough the first time...but that's for another episode of Roy Thinnes Interview!
