Patrick Duffy Biography

Patrick Duffy is an American actor who has been working in the entertainment industry since 1974. His tremendous worldwide audience appeal has been gained through three highly successful series. Starting with Man From Atlantis (1977-1978), then his thirteen years starring as Bobby Ewing on Dallas (1978-1991), and finally in seven seasons of the popular half-hour situation comedy Step by Step (1991-1998), Patrick has consistently been an audience favorite.

All three series were not only hugely successful in the U.S., but have become benchmark programs all over the world. Man From Atlantis captured its place in history when it became the first American television series program to be aired in China.

He began the Professional Actors Training Program at the University of Washington under RAD and Old Vic Alumnus William Duncan Ross and Canadian theatre and movement teacher Arnie Zaslov. This was the first undergraduate professional school for actors in a major U.S. university. Over 1,200 people auditioned for this 'second year' of the program and Patrick was one of 12 selected. The four-year program trained the actors in works from medieval morality play to the modern works, with the obvious emphasis on Shakespeare through Mr. Ross and theatre and movement with Mr. Zaslov.

Since beginning his TV career he has starred in well over a dozen movies for television and countless specials. While on Dallas he began his directing career by directing 30 episodes of that series and 49 of Step by Step. He and his good friend Larry Hagman co-produced the final television movie of Dallas. In March of 2000 he made his London West-End debut in Yasmina Reza's ART and has since returned for a season of the U.K.'s traditional PANTO.
