FRANK CONVERSE: Guest Star on "Lazarus From the Mist"

Frank Converse launched his career as a student actor at Carnegie Tech. in Pittsburgh.

His interest in theatre soon had him traveling around the country with a Shakespearian repertory company. Settling down briefly in Seattle, he appeared in repertory theatre productions of "Night of the Iguana" and "Streetcar Named Desire."

After pleasing Broadway audiences in "House of Blue Leaves" and "First One Asleep, Whistle," Converse decided it was time to try television, and made an auspicious debut on the NET production of "Shadow of a Gunman."

"But my biggest television boost," he recalls, "was 'Coronet Blue'." Following that successful series, Converse had guest shots on most major dramatic series, including "The FBI," "Medical Center," "Alias Smith and Jones," "Moderate Squad" and "The Bold Ones."

For two years, he appeared in the police drama, "NYPD," and has done two made-for-television films, "Dr. Cook's Garden" and "The Tattered Web."

For the past thirteen years, Converse has been married to Carol Towser.
