George Peppard (Detroit, October 1, 1928 – Los Angeles, May 8, 1994) was an American film and television actor.
George Peppard Jr. was born on October 1, 1928 in Detroit, Michigan, the son of construction contractor George Peppard and opera singer Vernelle Rohrer. After finishing high school he did military service in the naval artillery. Peppard enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in July 1946, reaching the rank of corporal. He began his studies in civil engineering at the University of Purdue, possibly with the intention of working a posteriori in the family business. He alternated his studies with jobs as a taxi driver, a bank employee and a motorcycle mechanic. He then moved to the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he received his bachelor’s degree in 1955.
He enrolled in Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon University the same year his father died, which left an unfinished construction project that ended George.
After his university studies, Peppard decided to become an actor and wanted to prepare for it, putting much effort from that moment to his acting career. He studied at the prestigious Actor’s Studio in New York.
After completing her training, she began to work in television films and in the theater. His first appearance on television was in 1956 with The United States Steel Hour, accompanied by a young man named Paul Newman. A few years later he would play The Pleasure of His Company, which would give him a contract with the MGM. His first film for the cinema was made in 1957, in which he repeated a role he had already played on Broadway.
His popularity was increasing in his following films, especially when he intervened in The Scandal came with him (1960) along with Robert Mitchum, Eleanor Parker and George Hamilton; and reached its peak thanks to Breakfast at Tiffany’s (Breakfast with diamonds, 1961) with Audrey Hepburn. His next films were also successful, especially The Insatiable (1964), co-starring Alan Ladd and Tobruk in 1967.
However, his career began to decline because he suffered from alcoholism and had a difficult personality. He began to be less requested by producers and studios, so he had to intervene in films of less interest. The television series Banacek (1972-1973) reconverted him for a time into an admired actor, but his film career continued to be decadent. In 1978 he made his directorial debut with Five Days From Home, a film that was well received. However, Peppard was not interested in repeating the experience. He devoted himself mainly to movies and television series when he saw that his film career was coming to an end.
Once again he achieved considerable success with the series The A-Team (called The Team A in Spain and The Magnificent or Brigade A in Latin America) with Mr. T, Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz, a production that made him very popular in all the countries that issued it. Of her five seasons were recorded in the period 1983-87, with a total of 98 episodes.
Because he was a heavy smoker, Peppard was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1992, although that would not stop him from acting, having completed the pilot episode for a new series that was being prepared.
