Christopher John George (February 25, 1931 – November 28, 1983) was an American television and film actor who was perhaps best known for his starring role in the 1966–1968 TV series The Rat Patrol. He was nominated for a Golden Globe in 1967 as Best TV Star for his performance in the series. He was also the recipient of a New York Film Festival award as the Best Actor in a Television Commercial. George was married to actress Lynda Day George.
Christopher George was born in Royal Oak, Michigan, on February 25, 1931, the son of Greek immigrants John and Vaseleke George. John George was born in Thebes, Greece and was a veteran of World War I, and Vaseleke was born in Athens.
Christopher George could not speak English until he was six years old, because his family only spoke Greek at home. His father was a traveling salesman during his childhood. Christopher George accompanied his father on selling trips to cities such as Akron, New York City, Chicago, St. Louis, Memphis, and Detroit. From Michigan, the family moved to Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. Once George began learning to speak English, his father enrolled him in Greek school in addition to his regular school so that he would not forget the Greek language. That was where George first got interested in acting; at Greek school they performed Greek plays and recited Greek poetry. When George was 14, he and his family moved to Miami, Florida. As a child, George lived in the Coconut Grove section of Miami and attended Shenandoah Elementary School and Miami Senior High School. In school, George played soccer, football and baseball and ran track. While in Florida, he used to hunt for alligators in the Everglades. After obtaining his driver's license, Chris worked for his father, driving trucks between Miami and other cities along the Eastern seaboard.
When he was young, Christopher George felt bound to enter the Greek Orthodox Church and his family prepared him for it; his brother Nick said that all through his childhood, Christopher was an altar boy and a choir boy and that his parents and the priest were trying to groom him to become a priest. He served as an altar boy at St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Miami.
