Actor. He is best known for his role as Luke Skywalker's Uncle Owen in the motion picture "Star Wars: Episode IV". Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he attended Standford University majoring in dramatics. His affiliation as co-founder of the Actors' Laboratory in Hollywood made him a target for the United States House of Representatives Un-American Activities Committee's investigation of suspected communists in the entertainment field. Eventually blacklisted, he moved his family to England, where he lived in self-exile for forty years. He continued to act in films, television and on the London stage where he appeared with Helen Hayes in "The Glass Menagerie." He returned to the United States, where he was a popular figure for autograph seekers at science fiction conventions. He died in Woodland Hills, California.
