Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Steve Kanaly is an American actor best known for his role as Ray Krebbs on the popular prime-time soap opera "Dallas." A southern California native, Kanaly served in the United States Army as a radio operator during the Vietnam War; upon his discharge, Kanaly began his initial forays into acting, including a small part in the Sergio Leone western "My Name Is Nobody," starring Henry Fonda and Terence Hill, and a role as one of the officers pursuing Goldie Hawn in Steven Spielberg's early success "The Sugarland Express." In 1978, he was cast in his breakout role as ranch foreman Ray Krebbs on "Dallas," who in time was revealed to be the illegitimate son of family patriarch Jock Ewing. One of the show's most popular supporting actors, Kanaly remained on the series until 1989, and reappeared for both the show's finale in 1991 and the second made-for-TV reunion movie "Dallas: War of the Ewings" in 1998. While he continued to take TV and film roles after leaving the series that made him a star, Kanaly has primarily focused on a successful sideline as a watercolor artist.
