Lee Majors


Lee Majors (birth name Harvey Lee Yeary) was born on 23 April 1939, in Wyandotte, Michigan. Majors' biological parents were killed in an auto accident when he was just a toddler. He was adopted by his uncle and aunt (Harvey and Mildred Yeary) as their own son. The family also included Majors' brother, Bill Yeary. Growing up in the small Kentucky town of Middlesboro, Majors attended Middlesboro High School, where he played on the varsity football team and was involved with the theater program. Furthering his education at Eastern Kentucky University, Majors played on the football team, but an injury ended what was being touted as a possible professional football career. After graduation, Majors relocated to Los Angeles, in hopes of employment in the film industry.

Majors has starred in seven series over the years and these include The Virginian, The Big Valley, Owen Marshall, Counselor At Law, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Fall Guy, Raven and Tour Of Duty. The role of astronaut Steve Austin in The Six Million Dollar Man shot Majors to international fame. He and second wife Farrah Fawcett made television history in 1976, being the first married couple to star in two separate, highly rated television series at the same time. Majors went on to also star in The Fall Guy, as Colt Seavers, a stuntman and bounty hunter. The Six Million Dollar Man and The Fall Guy were Majors' greatest hits and longest running series. Majors' film career has not been as well received as his television work. The most notable film he has appeared in was The Norseman. Today, Majors continues to work in television and film, but usually in supporting roles. He has also made a number of commercials.

Lee Majors has been married four times (Kathy Robinson, Farrah Fawcett, Karen Valez, and Faith Majors). He is the father of four children, Lee Majors II with Kathy Robinson and twin sons,Trey and Dane, and daughter Nikki, with Karen Valez.
