George Peppard Overview:

Legendary actor, George Peppard, was born George William Peppard Jr. on Oct 1, 1928 in Detroit, MI. Peppard died at the age of 65 on May 8, 1994 in Los Angeles, CA .


Fair-haired, blue-eyes, hard-headed American actor who looked to be a real find in the early sixties but proved disappointing in the leading roles of several big films (perhaps the wrong kind?) and was shunted into routine action thrillers and westerns. Found belated popularity as leader of TV's The A-Team. Married (divorced, remarried, and divorced) to Elizabeth Ashley from 1966 to 1972. He married his fifth wife in 1992. Died from pneumonia.
