TV-Movie Pin-Ups, July 1971
Although there are six doctors in Peter Duel’s family tree, he ignored tradition and decided to become an actor. Born in Rochester, New York, on Feb. 24, he grew up in Penfield with his younger brother Geoffrey and his younger sister Pamela. While attending St. Lawrence University, he became interested in theatrical productions … and this led to his enrollment at the American Theater Wing in New York City.
He gained experience by working as an assistant stage manager and actor in the Shakespeare Wrights Repertory Company. His lucky break in show business came when he signed for the film Wounded in Action. Upon moving to Hollywood, he appeared in guest shots on many TV series and now stars as Joshua Smith in Alias Smith and Jones. Ignoring the nightclub and party scene, he lives very simply in an apartment over a garage in West Hollywood.
Pete, a 6′ bachelor, has brown hair, brown eyes, and weighs 160 pounds. [Editor’s Note: Pete was actually 5’10.5″.]
