Biography by Hal Erickson

Trained at Manhattan's New School and London's LAMDA, Andrew Robinson made his off-Broadway bow in the 1967 satire MacBird. Within four years, Robinson was eliciting hisses and screams from moviegoers in the role of "Scorpio," the giggling serial killer in Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry (1971). While this assignment could very well have typecast Robinson for life (he's certainly played more than his share of slimy villains since), the actor has been careful to accept as many sympathetic roles--doctors, police officers and the like--as his schedule allows. A prolific TV guest star, he has played Sgt. Stark in the 1979 miniseries From Here to Eternity, John F. Kennedy in a 1986 Twilight Zone episode, Elim Garak in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1992 ), and the title role in the 1988 biopic Liberace. In 1984, Andrew Robinson won the Los Angeles Drama Circle Award for his stage performance in In the Belly of the Beast, which also served as his Broadway debut.
