Robert Fuller is an American former television actor and current horse rancher. In his five decades of television, he is best known for starring roles as Jess Harper and Cooper Smith on the popular 1960s western series, Laramie and Wagon Train, and for his work in the lead role, Dr. Kelly Brackett, in the 1970s medical drama Emergency!, opposite Julie London and her husband, Bobby Troup. An only child, Fuller was born Buddy Lee in Troy, New York, to Betty Simpson, a dance instructor. Prior to Buddy's birth, Betty married Robert Simpson, Sr., a Naval Academy officer. The family moved to Key West, Florida, where Buddy took the name Robert Simpson, Jr.. The early highlights of Simpson's life were acting and dancing, and after graduating from the Miami Military Academy in 1952, he traveled to Hollywood, California, with his family, where Fuller's first job was a stunt man. He also worked at the prestigious Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Upon establishing his acting career, he changed his name to "Robert Fuller."

  • He was an uncredited extra in Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus (1960).
  • Father of Rob, Christine and Patrick
  • Was a semi-regular on the 70s game show "The Hollywood Squares". Often his job on the show was to intentionally give the wrong answer but in a way that might convince the contestant that this might be one of the rare times he was right.
  • He is the only _"Walker, Texas Ranger" (1993)_ (qv) guest star ever to be killed off twice in the same episode; it was the 2-part series finale, in which he played a dual role.
