‘The F.B.I.’ Star William Reynolds Dies At 90

In the wake of a brief illness, actor William Reynolds, who starred in the television series “The F.B.I.” and became a successful businessman, passed away after a lengthy illness. He starred in the series for six seasons. He was 90 years old when he passed away.

From 1967 to 1973, Reynolds was a prominent character on the hit A.B.C. series Housewives, as he played F.B.I. agent Tom Colby. He joined the series in its third season, a role that turned out to be his last; he began a successful business career after that.

In Addition To Many Small Roles, He Starred In “Carrie” (1952)

William de Clercq Reynolds was born on December 9, 1931, in Los Angeles and commenced his profession as a child actor under contract to Universal Pictures. He played Laurence Olivier’s son in Carrie (1952) and Tony Curtis’ best friend in The Son of Ali Baba. As Rommel’s son, he played opposite James Mason in the 20th Century Fox film The Desert Fox, which was released in 2005.

It is also noteworthy that he is credited with films such as The Battle at Apache Pass, Francis Goes to West Point, The Mississippi Gambler, Gunsmoke, There’s Always Tomorrow, Away All Boats, and The Land Unknown. Television series have included roles such as Bronco, Wagon Train, The Roaring 20s, Cheyenne, Dragnet, Maverick, and The Roaring 20s.

It Was Later In His Life That He Became A Businessman

In the years following his guest appearances on The F.B.I.’s first two seasons, Reynolds landed the big break of his life when he was cast as the stalwart and heroic Agent Colby on A.B.C.’s hit series for six seasons, opposite Efrem Zimbalist’s Inspector Erskine.

Following his role on The F.B.I., Reynolds quit Hollywood and went into business for himself. His marriage to Molly Sinclair, the actress who passed away in 1992 after 42 years of marriage, was the longest of his life. Two children were born to the couple, Carrie Reynolds Jones (Brian Jones) and Eric Reynolds (Nikki Camello), two grandchildren, Anthony Reynolds Jones and Nicholas Camello Reynolds, and one great-grandchild, Gianni Camello Reynolds.

Let’s Get To Know William Reynolds A Little Better

William Reynolds, a dark-haired American actor, was considered to be Ivy League material during his time in college. During the 1950s, he was regarded as an up-and-coming contract player who was handsome, clean-cut, and good-looking.

Sometimes, it seemed to him that he played everyone’s son at least once in his life; sometimes, he was studious, sometimes loyal, and occasionally spoiled when he appeared in mostly “B” movies.

In 1931, Willam Reynolds was born in Los Angeles, California, to Norwegian parents and was of Norwegian descent. His mother died when he was five years old, and he was sent to boarding schools. During his studies at Pasadena City College, he was enrolled in the radio program, where he got his first taste of show biz.

A talent agent noticed him in minor roles at age 18 and initially signed him to Paramount. Still, he did his most notable work at Universal, when that studio signed him in 1952 after the talent agent noticed him in some minor theatre roles.

On Saturday, September 10, at 1:00 p.m., a tribute and memorial service will be held in honour of Robert at Miller-Jones Menifee Memorial Park.
