Profile Bio Text
Lawrence Pressman (born July 10, 1939) is an American actor, probably best known for roles on Doogie Howser, M.D., Ladies Man, a recurring role on Profiler, and as the titular character on Mulligan`s Stew. His first role was on the soap opera The Edge of Night, and one of his first movie starring roles was in Shaft. In addition to Doogie, Pressman has often portrayed a doctor, such as in Mighty Joe Young, TV movies A Fighting Choice, Whose Daughter Is She?, Murder Without Conviction, Victims for Victims: The Theresa Saldana Story, as well as in guest roles on Hawaii Five-0, Paper Moon, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Griff, Dawson`s Creek, The Drew Carey Show, Providence, The Practice, Dangerous Minds, Law & Order, Matlock and Marcus Welby, M.D.. He had a guest role on M*A*S*H as trouble making Congressional aide, R. Theodore Williamson; who vindictively schemed to paint Margaret Houlihan (Loretta Swit) as a communist sympathizer, but eventually failed.
Pressman is also well known for playing various guest characters in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He played Cardassian leader Legate Tekeny Ghemor in the episodes "Second Skin" and "Ties of Blood and Water" and a Founder who appeared in both Human and actual form in "The Adversary". Pressman was married to Days of our Lives actress Lanna Saunders from 1973 until her death in 2007. They had one son, actor David Pressman. Pressman is Jewish and was one of millions of people to have had members of his family killed by the Nazis. Every member of his family in Russia (except for Pressman`s aunt who had escaped to the United States) was murdered. His father spent many years searching for relatives, but found they had all been killed.
