Solidly built, boyishly handsome American leading-man Christopher George was the son of Greek immigrants.
Weaned on stories of the legendary Greek heroes, Christopher and his brother Nick (later a prominent fashion photographer) both quit high school to join the Marines. Completing his education after his tour of duty, George acted in numerous TV commercials, winning a New York Film Festival award for his efforts.
George became a TV star by virtue of the weekly wartime adventure series The Rat Patrol.
In his last years, George was a frequent guest on the religious talk-show circuit.
