From Grasshopper to the Prairie, actor Radames Pera performed in a number of iconic 70s television shows.  He joins us in this special episode, giving us a look at how his career all began with a chance encounter with director Daniel Mann, earning him the role of Stavros in the Anthony Quinn starring film, A Dream of Kings.  From there, he went on to appear in shows such as Medical Center, The Rookies, Night Gallery and many, many more.  He talks about his time as Grasshopper on Kung Fu and the adoptive son of Mr. Edwards on Little House on the Prairie.  Also, he shares his memories of his appearance on "Fool's Gold" on Shazam!

 

Radames Perá (born September 14, 1960) is an American former actor best known for his role as "Grasshopper" the student Kwai Chang Caine in the 1972–1975 television series Kung Fu. He is the only living regular cast member from the show.

At age eight, Radames was asked by director Daniel Mann to play the role of Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas' dying son in the film A Dream of Kings (1969). He met the director at a dinner party and was eventually cast in the role of Stavros. Pera's other acting roles include a disturbed pre-teen in an episode of Night Gallery, "Silent Snow, Secret Snow", narrated by Orson Welles, and guest appearances on The Six Million Dollar Man, as Don Ameche's son in the television movie Gidget Gets Married. Between 1969 and 1985, other guest-starring credits include two episodes of Lassie, Marcus Welby, M.D., the single episodes of Family Affair, Hawaii Five-O, and The Waltons among many others.

 

Today, Radames serves as a member of A Minor Consideration, a non-profit organization formed to give guidance to young performers, past, present, and future.
