Neville Brand played a former Union Army officer who came to the Rangers with something of a checkered past, which amused his younger partners. Riley, a gentle soul by nature, had been raised by Indians and so was the best tracker. Cooper was from New Orleans and had the reputation of a fast gun, although not as a gunfighter.

Character Bio


ERIK HUNTER was added to the Laredo cast in the second season, an addition in keeping with the outlandish direction some of the plots took. Erik came to Company B from Europe by way of Company A. (Not as a rookie Ranger as some synopses have it.) There was a saying in Company A that there were two ways of doing things, the Ranger’s way and Erik Hunter’s way. ["Legend of Midas Mantee"] This meant he would fit right in with Chad, Joe and Reese. Erik was sometimes paired with Reese (Neville Brand) because the contrast between them provided opportunity for comedy. He was rarely partnered with Joe (William Smith) perhaps because the writers had not written Joe as educated enough to play off Erik verbally or as enough of a buffoon to provide a humorous contrast. More often, if not working alone, Erik was paired with Chad (Peter Brown) They could exchange witticisms at the same level and compete for women. As Reese said of Chad & Erik, “Putting you two in the same place with one girl is like throwing a pork chop between a lion and a tiger.” ["Dance of the Laughing Death"]. The Captain referred to them as “God’s gift to the working girl.” ["Enemies & Brothers"]. Erik frequently bested Chad in the skirt chasing department; a number of second season episodes ended with Erik romancing the female villain. As in most Western series, other Rangers wore the same clothes in every episode. Erik had a bottomless saddlebag of outlandish outfits.
