Biography

Dan Haggerty in 1978

Source: Wikipedia

Dan Haggerty (born November 19, 1941, in Hollywood, California) is an American actor, best known for the title role in The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. He was born in Hollywood, growing up amid the Southern California bodybuilding lifestyle. He had early roles in Muscle Beach Party and the Elvis Presley film Girl Happy. His ease in working with animals got him work as a trainer and handler for Walt Disney films, and he found work as a stuntman on the Ron Ely's TV show Tarzan.

Urban legend has it that Dan Haggerty was the only person to have his star on the Walk of Fame Removed. Not quite. When "Don" Haggerty's star was first unveiled, it mistakenly said "Dan Haggerty". The star was removed and replaced with one with the correct spelling. Thus the urban legend that Dan Haggerty is the only actor to ever have "his star" removed from the walk of fame.
