Hans Meyer - Tyroll








13 misalliance 1   moment of truth Tyrol appears only in the beginning


Hans was born into a German farming family on 21 July 1925 in Paulpietersburg, South Africa, and spent his childhood in Natal/Zululand Province.  Upon completing schooling he became a farmer, but after a few years he decided to leave that life and travel to England.  While in England, Hans inspired the creator, Sidney Jordan, of the acclaimed Daily Express newspaper science fiction comic strip "Jeff Hawke" to model his comic's hero on Hans!  This is regarded as one of the most important science fiction comics ever created, and was published between 1955 - 1974.Hans also modeled for "photo novels" (a popular form of romance novels) in Europe, and became a well known advertising model for several products including Terry Cognac in Spain, where he is still known as "Senor Cognac".  A friend in Germany who was working in an advertising agency saw potential in his handsome friend and arranged for Hans to have his first acting job, in a television advertising campaign for Pushkin Vodka.  His acting debut was such a success that this vodka quickly became the best sellling vodka in Germany and Hans became one of the best known faces in Germany!  Because of this success with his first appearance before a camera, Hans was offered the leading role in a Spanish film, "Culpable Para un Delito".  This new career as an actor appealed to Hans, but he realized he needed to study acting to develop his talents if he was to achieve further success.  He decided to study with the great French film director, Claude Chabrol, in Paris.  Within a few years Hans was part of the popular "Nouvelle Vague - New Wave" film genre developed in France between 1958 - 1973, appearing in a succession of films directed by some of the greatest directors of that era, and acting alongside most of the popular actors of the day:  Godard/Belmondo & Karina (1965), Oury & Korber/ de Funes (1966 & 1971),  Enrico/Delon (1967), deBroca/Belmondo (1973).    When BBC Television was searching for European actors for the German roles in it's groundbreaking television series "Colditz" in 1972,  Hans joined the cast of this series and became one of it's most popular cast members.  In 1973 Hans starred in a BBC television series production of "Heidi", as "Grandfather".  Although young at 48 for the part, his creative talent brought the role to life and this version of the classic children's story remains the most charming of the many created over the years.  In 1978 Martin Chomsky directed the renowned television series "Holocaust" and cast Hans in the role of Ernst Kaltenbrunner.  Hans impressed Chomsky with his portrayal of Kaltenbrunner,  and Chomsky again cast Hans as Kaltenbrunner in his 1982 "Inside the Third Reich".  In 1960 Hans connected with the gifted young director Leos Carax, for his short film "Strangulation Blues".  This led to two further assocations with Carax,  "Boy Meets Girl" (1984) and "Mauvais Sang" (1986).   In 1987 Hans co-starred in the popular television series "Crossbow", based on the Swiss tales of William Tell.  Hans portrayed "Tyroll" with a touching combination of menace and pathos.  In 1989 Hans began what would become an on-going colaboration with talented, young, upcoming directors in the field of Short Films, starring in "Celeri Remoulade".  He went on to star in a long list of films in this genre that continues to this day, including "John" (1992), "un Cuilleree pour Papa" (1992),  "Entre les Vagues" (1997), "Morteterre" (2002), "Baptiste" (2003), "Sentence Finale" (2006), "Piscine du Maman" (2007), and "Fin du Bal" (2007).   Hans admits his very first love of acting focused on the theatre, and while his life's work took another direction he has "tread the boards" in several theatre productions including "Juin '40" (19??), Theatre le Lucernaire, Paris...."Fragments Nocturnes, Tapages Faciles" (1999), Theatre Essaion, Paris.....and "Phedre et Hippolyte" (2001), National Festival at Bellac, France.  (www.hansmeyer.info)

John Ernest Crawford 5' 8" (1.73 m)

Was one of Walt Disney's original Mouseketeers in 1955.

With five Top 40 hits in the 1960s, Crawford's recording of "Cindy's Birthday" peaked at 8 on Billboard's Top 40 in 1962.

Most famous for portraying Chuck Connors sensitive young son, Mark McCain, on TV series "The Riflemen" (1958).

Continued performing in theater and nightclubs after his early TV and pop-music heydays.

Crawford had a key role in the early career of Victoria Jackson of  "Saturday Night Live"(1975 fame. In 1980, she was a college student in Birmingham, Alabama, earning credit doing flip-flops, as a member of the chorus, in a summer stock production of "Meet Me in St. Louis", featuring Crawford. He presented her with a one-way plane ticket and encouraged her to pursue a career in Hollywood. This led to her 22 appearances on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson"  (1962), before she was cast as a regular on Saturday Night Live"  (1975)

Personal Quotes

There were only about 50 people there, and they were all enjoying the band, and almost all were dancing. One fellow was standing off to the side watching for the longest time; it was Dustin Hoffman. He loved it. He said it reminded him of when he was a little boy and his parents took him to see Ted Lewis. Martin Short was a riot. He said, 'I wanna sing with Johnny Crawford!'

[On his orchestrated band]: It's a unique, romantic sound, and people love to hear it. It takes people back to an older America and a simpler, more elegant time. It's a sound I really love, and I find that once people get a chance to hear it live, in all its glory, that they love it, too

[As to why his Mark McCain character became popular with audiences]: What boy wouldn't love dressing up as a cowboy and getting paid for it! It was hard work, and I took it very seriously as an actor, but I was living in a dream

I always say that life is not easy for anybody. People hear about the young actors who have a rough life, but there are plenty of other kids who aren't actors who have a rough time, too, and I don't know if the ratio is any different.

[Comparing his character on "The Riflemen" (1958) to his real-life role as a bandleader]: The way I look at it, Mark McCain could have grown up to lead dance bands in the 1920s and '30s. As a young man who sang and played the guitar in two episodes, he might have made his way to Los Angeles, where there was lots of work for musicians in the early 1900s. By 1931, when he would have been the same age that I am now, he might have been leading his own band. I like to think he would have

[On his on- and off-screen chemistry with Chuck Connors, who played Lucas McCain]: He was my hero. I enjoyed being with him. He wasn't as stern as he was on camera. He was like a kid around me.

Of Chuck Connors): Well, it was a great childhood, and he was bigger-than-life, a wonderful guy, very intelligent, and a big influence on me, and a great supporter, too. He was always interested in what I was doing and ready to give me advice or help me and he would call me out of the blue, and I really miss him. He left us in '92, and it's still a shock to me to think that he's not around because he had so much energy, and loved life and loved people, and he was 'The Rifleman.' He was that and a lot more.

His first important break as an actor followed with the title role in a Lux Video Theatre production of "Little Boy Lost," a live NBC broadcast on March 15, 1956. Following that performance, the young actor worked steadily with many seasoned actors and directors. Within two and a half years, he accumulated almost sixty television credits, including featured roles in three episodes of "The Loretta Young Show" and an appearance as Manuel in "I Am an American," an episode of the crime drama Sheriff of Cochise.

Crawford had a key role in the early career of Victoria Jackson of Saturday Night Live fame; after appearing together in a summer stock production of "Meet Me in St. Louis," he presented her with a one-way airline ticket to California and encouraged her to pursue a Hollywood career. This led to her early TV appearances on The Tonight Show before she was cast as a regular on Saturday Night Live.

He reconnected with his high school sweetheart, Charlotte Samco, in 1990, and they wed in 1995.



Georgia Lyman




In choosing acting as her career, the BU grad was following in the footsteps of her father, Will Lyman, a mainstay on the Boston theater circuit and the voice of PBS’s Frontline. The younger Lyman’s work is hardly limited to the stage, either. For three seasons, she delivered an unforgettable performance as the hard-edged Cassie Giggs on Showtime’s Brotherhood, a series loosely based on the Bulger brothers. Set and shot in Providence, it was a harbinger of the upsurge in filmed work now seen in Boston — an upsurge in which Lyman has already taken part, having recently appeared in Bride Wars.

Though looking forward to future opportunities from this influx, Lyman maintains an unflagging commitment to theater, which inspired her and a cadre of actor friends to form the Orfeo Group in 2007. The company’s sophomore effort last summer was a free production of John Osborne’s classic Look Back in Anger at the Factory Theatre. Yes, free. “The idea is ‘theater for all,’ ” says Lyman. “The arts are too important to let finance be in the way. We’re in it for the art, the experience, and to remind people that theater is a necessity, not a luxury.”

Williams' son and grandson are the polo players, Nick Williams Sr. and Nick Williams Jr. Addie also spent time in Argentina, again with Williams. His family's house in Sapperton in the Cotswolds, near Cirencester meant that he was involved in polo every day through the season through much of the 1970s and early 1980s. He was a keen horseman and accomplished swordsman and former competitive archer.

Addie was married and divorced three times. He had three children: Alexander, Alastair and Caitlin. He died on 20 November 2003, aged 43, just three weeks after being diagnosed with lung cancer
