Chad Everett, Handsome TV Doctor

Chad Everett's interest in acting began in high school, when he took theater classes in Dearborn, Michigan. Everett then attended Wayne State University before moving to Los Angeles and signing a contract with Warner Brothers. According to his agent, the actor -- born Raymon Lee Cramton on June 11, 1937 -- changed his name because he was tired of explaining "Raymon, no 'D', Cramton, no 'P.'" Chad Everett was born in 1937 and was 75 years old when he died of lung cancer on July 24, 2012.
