Profile Bio Text
Raymond William Stacey Burr (May 21, 1917 – September 12, 1993) was a Canadian-American actor, primarily known for his title roles in the television dramas Perry Mason and Ironside. His early acting career included roles on Broadway, radio, television and in film, usually as the villain. He won two Emmy Awards in 1959 and 1961 for the role of Perry Mason, which he played for nine seasons between 1957 and 1966. His second hit series, Ironside, earned him six Emmy nominations, and two Golden Globe nominations. In addition to acting, Burr owned an orchid business and had begun to grow a vineyard and was well known for his philanthropy. He was a collector of wines and art, and was fond of cooking. After his death from cancer in 1993, the details of Burr's personal life came into question as some details of his known biography appeared to be unverifiable (the existence of a first wife, son, or a third wife, service in the navy).
