David Ogden Stiers was born in Peoria, Illinois, moved with his family to Eugene, Oregon during high school and began his acting career in Northern California, acting in the Actor's Workshop and California Shakespeare Festival. He later moved to New York, where he studied drama at Julliard, and joined the Houseman Acting Company at its outset. He often lends his voice to animated films, with Lilo & Stitch (2002) being his 25th theatrically-released Disney animated film. He is also an avid fan of classical music, and has conducted many orchestras, including the Yaquina Chamber Orchestra in Newport, Oregon, where he is the principal guest conductor.

  • Some of the _"M*A*S*H" (1972)_ (qv) actors jokingly had his dressing room painted orange and purple while Stiers was off for Thanksgiving break.
  • Played French horn in the orchestra at Julliard, which is rather more amusing considering an episode of _"M*A*S*H" (1972)_ (qv) where he bothers Hawkeye and B.J. with persistent bad horn playing.
  • His last name is pronounced "styers".
  • Was a high school classmate of Chicago Sun-Times film critic 'Roger Ebert' (qv).
  • Has conducted 70 orchestras in over 100 appearances. He is resident conductor of the Newport Symphony Orchestra in Newport, Oregon.
  • Provided the voice of Cogsworth the clock in Disney's _Beauty and the Beast (1991)_ (qv). His advice to the Beast on what to give Belle, "Flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep..." was his own creation.
  • Has a son from a relationship in the 1960s.
  • On _"M*A*S*H" (1972)_ (qv), he played an Harvard alum and in real life, Stiers taught theater games at Harvard.
