Although he loved to act in high school theater productions, Lance Guest never really thought a career in Hollywood was in the cards. But while attending UCLA, he auditioned for a part on the television series "Fame" and, even though he didn't get it, was encouraged to find an agent. He landed a role on the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" sitcom spinoff "Lou Grant," and subsequently a good part in the slasher sequel "Halloween II," opposite Jamie Lee Curtis.

His other notable television work can be seen in the primetime soap "Knots Landing" and in the family drama "Life Goes On."
