William Daniels Facts
Portrayed John Adams in the original Broadway stage version of 1776 and reprised his role in the movie 1776 (1972).

While performing on both "St. Elsewhere" (1982) and "Knight Rider" (1982) in the 1980s, Daniels made goodwill visits to children's hospitals. He discovered that not many children were thrilled to meet an actor who played a doctor, but the fact that he voiced the talking car KITT always appealed to them, so he shifted emphasis during his visits. He entertained the children with KITT-styled phrases, and answered their questions about "Knight Rider" while hardly mentioning his other, larger acting role.

He and his wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, won Emmys for their portrayals of a married couple, Dr. and Mrs. Mark Craig, on the cult TV series "St. Elsewhere" (1982) in 1982.
