Early life and education

Hill was born in Melfort, Saskatchewan, the son of Edith Georgina (Spence) and Olin Drake Hill, a lawyer.[1] Hill served as a mechanic in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II and attended the University of British Columbia, where he studied law, but was lured to the stage.

Career

Hill made his Broadway debut as Cornelius Hackl in the 1957 revival of Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker. In 1963 he won the Tony Award for Best Dramatic Actor for his portrayal of George in the original Broadway production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (with Uta Hagen). His other Broadway credits include Ben Gant in the original production of Ketti Frings's Look Homeward, Angel (1957), All the Way Home (1960), Something More! (1964), and More Stately Mansions (1967).

He played Dr. Jeremy Stone in the film adaptation of Michael Crichton's The Andromeda Strain (1971). Other film work included roles in The Ugly American (1963) with Marlon Brando, Harper (1966), Richard Lester's Petulia (1968) with George C. Scott, The Chairman (1969), Sam Peckinpah's The Killer Elite (1975), Michael Crichton's Futureworld (1976), A Bridge Too Far (1977) (uncredited), and his narration on the film version of Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983).

Arguably, Hill's most famous acting role was that of lawyer Owen Marshall, the lead role in the 1971–74 TV series Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law. He appeared on many other series, including The Reporter, a 1964 drama starring Harry Guardino. He also played Grandpa Lansford Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie (1976).

In 1966 he appeared as a special guest star in the Mission Impossible TV show episode "The Carriers" (S1:E10), in the Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episode "The Monster from the Inferno" and was a guest star in the pilot episode of Murder, She Wrote in 1984, returning to that same role in an episode in 1990. The same year he played the governor of California in a Columbo episode, Agenda for Murder; this was his last onscreen role.

Death

Hill died in a Pacific Palisades, California, nursing home, aged 84, after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. His ashes were scattered into the Pacific Ocean.[2]
