Michael Fairman is a veteran of TV, film and stage, with over 100 credits to his name. Surprisingly, he didn't get involved in showbiz until he was an adult.
While working as an Air Force navigator, he was stationed near Tokyo, Japan. There, he joined a theater group and discovered that he loved acting. When he returned to New York City, he attended New York University, where he enrolled in drama and starred in plays such as Oedipus and A Streetcar Named Desire. In the '70s, he appeared in a few TV movies and popular prime-time series like EIGHT IS ENOUGH and CHARLIE'S ANGELS. His career really took off in the '80s, however — and has been going strong ever since!
