Midwesterner and long time character actor Andrew Duggan didn't start acting until after serving under actor Melvin Douglas in the 40th Special Services Company during World War II. Following Duggan's tour of duty, he met Broadway director Daniel Mann on his way back to the States, and it was Mann who suggested that Duggan give stage acting a try. Duggan began performing on stage during the latter half of the 1940s in the plays "Fragile Fox," "The Rose Tattoo," and "The Third Best Sport," before beginning what would prove to be a long and prolific career in television and film. Duggan began as a character actor guest starring on numerous television series during the late 1940s and early 1950s but didn't land a starring role until 1959 with the part of Cal Calhoun in the detective drama series "Bourbon Street Beat." More smaller roles in TV would follow entering the 1960s, with his most notable role that of George Rose on the short-lived sitcom "Room for One More" before earning larger roles in films like the family comedy "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" and the espionage comedy "In Like Flint." Towards the end of the 1960s and early 1970s Duggan would continue to guest in several western series including a recurring role on the "Bonanza" spinoff, "Lancer," in 1968. Duggan would continue to provide character parts in television and even lend his voice to Walt Disney's theme park attraction Carousel of Progress before his death at the age of 64.
