IMDb profile

Vince Edwards (July 9, 1928—March 11, 1996) was an American television actor, best known as the star of the popular medical drama series Ben Casey from 1961 to 1966. During the show's run he recorded several albums and received some starring film work, but following the show's cancellation he was never able to duplicate that success again as an actor (which in later years he blamed on a gambling addiction). His one other regular series Matt Lincoln (1971) lasted just one season.

While acting remained his primary field, he branched out into television direction during Ben Casey's run. He directed the 1978 Season 3 opener of The Hardy Boys for Glen A. Larson which led in turn to his directing work on both Battlestar Galactica and Galactica 1980.

Edwards died of pancreatic cancer in Los Angeles, California, on March 11, 1996. He was buried at the Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California.
