University of Arkansas and Catholic University alumnus Laurence Luckinbill studied acting with Uta Hagen before appearing in his first Broadway play, A Man For All Seasons. Luckinbill familiarized himself with a large portion of American TV followers through his work in the daytime dramas The Secret Storm and Where the Heart Is. He made his movie bow in 1970, re-creating his stage role of "conservative" homosexual Hank in The Boys in the Band. Two years later, he starred as espionage agent Glenn Garth Gregory in the TV series The Delphi Bureau. His TV movie credits (The Lindbergh Kidnapping Case, Ike: The War Years, Lincoln) have thus far outnumbered such large-screen assignments as the role of Sybok in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989). Formerly married to soap-opera star Robin Mattson, Laurence Luckinbill is the husband of actress Lucie Arnaz, with whom he has toured in such theatrical productions as They're Playing Our Song.
