    John Russell was only 37 - and looked even younger than that - when he was cast in this series. He believed that in order for a man like Dan Troop to have gained the kind of experience and maturity he possessed he would have had to have been in at least his mid-40s, so Russell had the makeup department streak gray through his hair and he lowered his voice when he spoke in order to appear several years older.
