Ray Walston

Ray Walston started his career with a local stock company in his native New Orleans, Louisiana and joined a traveling repertory company after his family moved to Houston, Texas. He later joined the Houston Civic Theater and the Cleveland Playhouse.

His varied talents enabled him to appear in dramas, comedies and musicals. His break came in 1939 when he was cast as a reporter in the Ben Hecht-Charles MacArthur play, The Front Page. He appeared in the stage version of South Pacific in 1949 and won a Tony in 1955 for his role as the Devil in Damn Yankees. He recreated the roles of Luther Billis (South Pacific) and Mr. Applegate (Damn Yankees) for the film versions of both musicals in 1958.

In 1963 he was cast as extraterrestrial Uncle Martin in the TV series My Favorite Martian alongside Bill Bixby. The show ran for three years. He made numerous appearances on television including The Wild Wild West, Fantasy Island, Newhart and the recurring role of Boothby, the gardener at The Starfleet Academy, on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager. His work as Judge Henry Bone on television's Picket Fences gained him two Emmys.

His last appearance was in his recurring role as Sgt. Millard on 7th Heaven in an episode that aired after his death.
