Writer's Workshop: Favorite Actors from my Childhood, Plus One I Adore!

I chose writing prompt #1..What actors from childhood do you think about?

When I was a kid my favorite actors were:

First and forever there was Michael Landon:

Little Joe Cartwright in Bonanza

Pa-Charles Ingalls in Little House on the Prairie
(I soo wanted him to be my daddy)

Jonathan Smith in Highway to Heaven

Then there was Lorne Greene:

Ben Cartwright in Bonanza

Adama in Battlestar Galactica

And of course there was Victor French:

Isaiah Edwards in Little House on the Prairie

Mark Gordon in Highway to Heaven

I can't forget Parker Stevenson:

Frank Hardy in The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries

Craig Pomeroy in Baywatch

Now we get to the man that makes me catch my breathe everytime I hear him speak. The most amazing Sam Elliot:

Gar in Mask

Wade Garrett in Roadhouse

I'm thinking..Wild Bill Hickcock in Buffalo Girls

Virgil Earp in Tombstone

Just to name a few, cause there are soo many more movies he was in that where great.

Ohhhh yeeeaaahhhhhhh!!!!

Excuse me...Brain overload

Hope that was fun for yall!

I had a huge crush on Parker Stevenson too! He was my favorite Hardy Boy. And Sam Elliot! Still love him.

And I have to add Tom Selleck. He's always reminded me of my Dad. I think it's the height and the mustache.
