Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Bill Smitrovich is tall, somewhat brawny, and looks like the average working guy--just the part he played in the ABC series "Life Goes On" (1989-93), which followed an American family trying to make ends meet and make a better life for themselves. Smitrovich's character, Drew Thacher, went from the assembly line to owning his own restaurant, only to see it burn to the ground.
