Albert, Edward 1951–2006

(Edward Laurence Albert, Edward Lawrence Albert, Edward Albert, Jr.)


Full name, Edward Laurence Albert, Jr.; born February 20, 1951, in Los Angeles, CA; died of lung cancer, September 22, 2006, in Malibu, CA. Actor and producer. Albert may have been best known as the son of actor Eddie Albert, but he was a performer in his own right. After making his film debut at age 14 in The Fool Killer, Albert took time off from acting to attend the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as Oxford University. In 1972 Albert starred in his breakthrough role in Butterflies Are Free. His performance as a blind young man trying to escape his overprotective mother garnered him a Golden Globe Award nomination for best actor and a Golden Globe Award for most promising newcomer. Albert continued acting in films, including Midway, The Greek Tycoon, and The Domino Principle. In the 1980s and 1990s Albert appeared in such low-budget films as The House Where Evil Dwells, Demon Keeper, and Sorceress. Though Albert worked steadily in film throughout his career, he appeared more frequently in television. He was a regular on such television series as Falcon Crest, Beauty and the Beast, soap opera Port Charles in the late 1990s, and Power Rangers Time Force. Albert guest starred in dozens of television shows, including Police Story and The Love Boat in the 1970s, Murder, She Wrote and Houston Knights in the 1980s, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Nash Bridges and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman in the 1990s. An avid environmentalist and committed to his Native American heritage, Albert was active in such organizations as the California Coastal Commission and the California Native American Heritage Commission.
