Biografía

Biografía

DARREN MCGAVIN, NACIDO WILLIAM LYLE RICHARDSON (7 de mayo de 1922, San Joaquín, California – 25 de febrero de 2006) fue un actor estadounidense.

 

Biografía y carrera

Formado en el Actor’s Studio como tantos grandes del cine de su tiempo a tenor de sus primeras creaciones para la gran pantalla, nadie hubiera predicho que su verdadero destino iba a estar en la televisión. Entre esas interpretaciones tempranas, que hicieron augurar en McGavin a un nuevo Martin Balsam, Rod Steiger o Jack Palance los grandes secundarios formados por Lee Strasberg a la sombra del Método de Stanislawsky, McGavin se imponía como un intérprete sugerente.

 

Otto Preminger le reclamó entonces para dar vida al Louis de El hombre del brazo de oro (1955), un certero acercamiento de este realizador a las miserias de los heroinómanos en el que McGavin daba vida al proveedor de droga, del desdichado Frankie Machine, el yonqui encarnado por Frank Sinatra.

 

Mucho más próximas al que fue su destino se encuentran las dos colaboraciones que el actor realizó en la serie ‘Alfred Hitchcock presenta’ —’Triggers in Leash’ y ‘The Cheney Vase’— en 1955. Aunque no fueron dirigidas por el mago del suspense, aportaron al intérprete una gran popularidad.

 

Ya en 1956, McGavin dio vida a Mike Hammer en una primera serie de las aventuras del célebre detective creado por Mickey Spillane, que se prolongaría hasta 1959. Aunque por aquellas fechas la serie ‘La ley del revólver’ ya había comenzado su larga andadura en la televisión estadounidense, McGavin participó en varios episodios: ‘Twenty Miles fron Dodge’, ‘The Hostage’ (ambos de 1965) y ‘Gunfighter RIP’ (1966).

 

En 1974-1975 nació la teleserie de culto Kolchak: The Night Stalker, gracias al éxito de 2 telefilmes anteriores protagonizados por Darren del mismo personaje: «The Night Stalker» en 1972 y «The Night Strangler» en 1973. Aquí le dio vida al periodista-investigador Carl Kolchak, memorable e incomprendido personaje que resolvía los casos más inverosímiles y misteriosos: un vampiro, un científico loco, Jack El Destripador, una criatura de las cloacas, un motociclista sin cabeza, un hombre lobo, un pirómano de ultratumba, un caballero medieval, una mortal e inmortal Helena de Troya, un hombre de las cavernas, un hechicero azteca, un fantasma, una entidad energética, brujas, un alien, un robot asesino, un zombie y, en el que tal vez sea el mejor episodio de todos “Horror in the Heights”, un demonio mitad hindú mitad Lovecraft llamado el Rakshasha: un ser con la capacidad de convertirse en el mejor amigo de la víctima y después…aniquilarlo, todo eso fue Carl Kolchak, el verdadero precursor y pionero de los Expedientes Secretos X.

 

Además de Airport ’77, rodada por Jerry Jameson en el año aludido, también se le pudo ver en The Natural (1984), donde da vida a un frío y manipulador dueño de un equipo de fútbol, la némesis del protagonista Robert Redford. Luego su creación de Bill Brown, el padre de Murphy, en Murphy Brown, la aplaudida serie protagonizada por Candice Bergen y creada por Diane English en 1988.

 

Muerte

Murió el 25 de febrero de 2006, tenía 83 años.

DARREN MCGAVIN (MAY 7, 1922 – FEBRUARY 25, 2006)

 

DARREN MCGAVIN, BORN WILLIAM LYLE RICHARDSON (May 7, 1922, San Joaquin, California – February 25, 2006) was an American actor.

 

Biography and career

Trained in the Actor’s Studio like so many great filmmakers of his time based on his first creations for the big screen, no one would have predicted that his true destiny would be on television. Among those early interpretations, which made a new Martin Balsam, Rod Steiger or Jack Palance augur in McGavin the great secondary ones formed by Lee Strasberg in the shadow of the Stanislawsky Method, McGavin was imposed as a suggestive interpreter.

 

Otto Preminger then called on him to give life to the Louis of The Man with the Golden Arm (1955), an accurate approach by this director to the miseries of heroin addicts in which McGavin gave life to the drug supplier, the unfortunate Frankie Machine, the Junkie played by Frank Sinatra.

 

Much closer to his destiny are the two collaborations that the actor made in the series ‘Alfred Hitchcock presents’ – ‘Triggers in Leash’ and ‘The Cheney Vase’ – in 1955. Although they were not directed by the suspense magician , brought the interpreter great popularity.

 

Already in 1956, McGavin gave life to Mike Hammer in a first series of the adventures of the famous detective created by Mickey Spillane, which would last until 1959. Although at that time the series ‘The Law of the Revolver’ had already begun its long journey in On American television, McGavin participated in several episodes: ‘Twenty Miles fron Dodge’, ‘The Hostage’ (both from 1965) and ‘Gunfighter RIP’ (1966).

 

In 1974-1975 the cult TV series Kolchak: The Night Stalker was born, thanks to the success of 2 previous telefilms starring Darren of the same character: «The Night Stalker» in 1972 and «The Night Strangler» in 1973. Here he gave life to the journalist-investigator Carl Kolchak, memorable and misunderstood character who solved the most unlikely and mysterious cases: a vampire, a mad scientist, Jack the Ripper, a creature from the sewers, a headless motorcyclist, a werewolf, an arsonist from the grave, a medieval knight, a mortal and immortal Helen of Troy, a caveman, an Aztec sorcerer, a ghost, an energetic entity, witches, an alien, a killer robot, a zombie and, in which he is perhaps the best All episode «Horror in the Heights», a half Hindu half Lovecraft demon called the Rakshasha: a being with the ability to become the victim’s best friend and then … annihilate him, all that was Carl Kolchak, the true precursor and pioneer of the Secret X Files.

 

In addition to Airport ’77, shot by Jerry Jameson in the aforementioned year, he could also be seen in The Natural (1984), where he plays a cold and manipulative owner of a football team, the nemesis of the protagonist Robert Redford. Then his creation of Bill Brown, Murphy’s father, in Murphy Brown, the acclaimed series starring Candice Bergen and created by Diane English in 1988.

 

Death

He died on February 25, 2006, he was 83 years old.
