Peter Haskell


Peter Haskell, who starred as producer-writer Kevin Grant on NBC Television Network's "Bracken's World," admired adventurers and jumped from airplanes more than 100 times to put himself in that category. His zest for living spilled over into his role as a successful producer in "Bracken's World."
Peter was born on Oct. 15 in Boston, Mass. During his grammar and high school years he was active in sports and earned letters in hockey, baseball and football. After completing studies at the Browne and Nichols Prep School in Cambridge, he enrolled in Harvard in 1953. A year later he began a two-year hitch as a paratrooper with the Army's 11th Airborne Division. After a brief return to Harvard, Peter decided to see the country
and worked his way as a horse wrangler, a parachute test jumper, a U.S. Forest Service firefighter and a dishwasher. Back in Harvard once more, he became Intercollegiate Champion in skydiving in 1958, placed fifth in the Eastern U.S. Championships and seventh in the U.S. Nationals. Peter finally took his studies seriously and was graduated from Harvard, cum laude in English literature, in 1962. Haskell's first paid performance came during one of his Harvard "drop out" periods when he
landed a part at Boston's Charles Playhouse. Roles in summer stock followed. Later he moved to California where he received an acting assignment in "Outer Limits." Roles in "Ben Casey," "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." and "Dr.
Kildare," "The Green Hornet," "The Big Valley," "iron Horse," "Combat" and "Land of the Giants" have been added to his credits.
Peter was 6'2", weighed 180 pounds and had brown hair and blue-grey eyes. He and his wife, the former Ann Compton, whom he married during his Harvard years, lived in Hollywood. Peter died in 2010.
