Victor French

Victor French was born in Santa Barbara, California on December 4, 1934. His father was a stuntman and French wanted to get into acting from early childhood. He had a successful movie and television career, specializing in Westerns.

He was the first Agent 44, appearing in that role in five episodes in the first season. His first appearance, however, was as an insurance agent in Too Many Chiefs.

French had starring roles in Little House on the Prairie and Carter Country, which led to his most famous role, Mark on Highway to Heaven. French also worked as a director, winning a Critics Circle Award in Los Angeles in 1982. He died of cancer in 1989, just after Highway to Heaven’s run ended. Contents
