Life Story of Dirk Benedict

It's a long way from the vastness of Montana's Big Sky country to the vastness of outer space, but Dirk Benedict is taking the transition in stride. The actor's hometown of White Sulphur Springs, Montana, was so small that it lacked a television station. White Sulphur Springs, MT did have a motion picture theater! Benedict became the co-star in MCA TV's Battlestar Galactica (1978) as a skirt-chasing, fun-loving combat pilot aboard an embattled spaceship in a far-off galaxy.

It was at Whitman College, in Walla Walla, Washington, that Dirk became interested in acting. During his freshman year, he accepted a dare to audition for the Spring musical and won the lead role of "Gaylord Ravenal" in "Showboat". The next three years were filled with many more musical productions. Upon graduation, Benedict began a two-year training program under John Fernald, who had headed London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London for fifteen years. He then played repertory theatre in Seattle and in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he played such roles as "Edmund" in "King Lear", "Tarleton" in "Misalliance", "Ensign Pulver" in "Mister Roberts" and the lead in Neil Simon's "Star-Spangled...

Willie Aames, Dirk Benedict, Marji Martin, and Maureen Teefy in Scavenger Hunt (1979)

After his parents divorced, Dirk's mother got a restraining order taken out against her ex-husband, prohibiting him from seeing the children at their own home. When Dirk was 18, his father violated the order and told Dirk to go fishing with him. Dirk's mother had previously told him to say whatever he needed to to get out of going with his father. Fed up, his father stormed into the house, was shot and killed by his older son, who also nearly shot Dirk when he followed their father into the living room.
