Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Prolific supporting actor Richard Fancy enjoyed the consistent work - if not the immediate name recognition afforded to character actors - over the course of a three-decade career that encompassed frequent appearances on "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ), "It's Garry Shandling's Show" (Showtime, 1986-1990), "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998) and "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-08). Though frequently cast as men of authority - doctors, lawyers, business figures - in dramas, Fancy was also adept at comedy, as his appearances on "Shandling" and "Seinfeld" clearly indicated. Between television assignments and small roles in features like "Nixon (1995) and "Being John Malkovich" (1999), Fancy was a frequent stage performer on both coasts, as well as a familiar face from numerous television ad campaigns and several short films. Though rarely singled out by media critics, Richard Fancy's vast list of credits, including numerous recurring turns on major series, underscored his status as one of Hollywood's most prolific supporting players.
