About Gavin MacLeod (1930 – )
Gavin MacLeod was born on February 28, 1930 in Mount Kisco, New York. MacLeod's birth name is Allan See. He took his stage name from his college drama coach Beatrice MacLeod, and from an affecting TV drama in which a cerebral palsy victim was named "Gavin."
Gavin has four children; Keith, Julie, David and Meghan from his first marriage to Joan F. Rootvik(1955-1972).
MacLeod is sometimes credited as Gavin McLeod, O.D. Warbux and Sonny Wilde.
With a move to New York City Gavin MacLeod worked for a while as an usher and elevator operator at Radio City Music Hall. A solid break on Broadway in A HATFUL OF RAIN in 1956, led Gavin MacLeod to move to Los Angeles to attempt film and TV.
As Murray Slaughter, the balding, beaming news writer on MARY TYLER MOORE (1970), wisecracking, humble and un-hip to a fault, Gavin MacLeod (and Murray) became friendly household names in the 1970s. Gavin was honored with two Golden Globe nominations for his performance as Murray Slaughter.
Cast in stone with the enduring success of another TV series, THE LOVE BOAT, Gavin MacLeod's performance in the role of the ingratiating Captain Stubing entertained many, and earned Gavin two Golden Globe nominations. In 1977, the role of THE LOVE BOAT'S Captain Stubing (Gavin MacLeod) led to a long-running gig promoting the Princess Cruises.
MacLeod's autobiography BACK ON COURSE, the Remarkable Story of a Divorce That Ended in Remarriage" details his problems with alcohol and subsequent recovery and remarriage to second wife Patti MacLeod.
