Edward Mulhare (1923)

Type :  


Edward Mulhare (8 April 1923 – 24 May 1997) was a popular television actor whose career spanned four decades.

Born at 22 Quaker Road, Cork City, County Cork, Ireland, and educated by the Irish Christian Brothers, Mulhare intended to study medicine, but was sidetracked by a growing interest in acting. After acting in various Irish venues including the Gate Theatre in Dublin, he moved to London where he worked with Orson Welles and John Gielgud.
His best-known stage role was as Professor Higgins in the original Broadway production of My Fair Lady, taking over from Rex Harrison in 1957.

His first television appearance was in 1956 in a production of The Adventures of Robin Hood. In 1957 he moved to New York succeeding Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins in the Broadway production of My Fair Lady. He was a guest panelist on the TV panel show What's My Line? in 1958. By 1965 he was back in Hollywood appearing in films and television shows. He earned a role in the films Von Ryan's Express in 1965; Our Man Flint in 1966, and Caprice in 1967. He guest starred in television programmes including guest-starring in 1966 as Luftwaffe Colonel Kurt Halland in the second season episode 29, "Siren Song" of Twelve O'Clock High. But he is more well known for his starring roles in two television series, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir and as Devon Miles in Knight Rider , as well as many guest starring performances on other programmes. He also guest-starred in one episode of the original Battlestar Galactica.

In the mid 1980s, Mulhare hosted a television series, Secrets of the Unknown. The show dealt with the supernatural aspects of historical events, and took place inside of a fictional, isolated castle. The main set room, which contained various displays and faux computer consols, helped to illustrate details of the subjects that were covered. These included the ocean liner RMS Titanic, Amelia Earhart, the rigid airship Hindenburg, dreams and nightmares, Stonehenge, the pyramids, ghosts, volcanoes, life after death, UFOs and others. In addition to pre-recorded interviews with guests, actors in period attire were used to portray people within the subject material. The series is still a cult favourite among sci-fi fans and history buffs.

He starred in a number of films in his career including Megaforce and Out to Sea. His final role was on Baywatch Nights alongside former Knight Rider co-star David Hasselhoff in 1997.


Edward Mulhare died in his Van Nuys home in Los Angeles of lung cancer in 1997. He never married. The Team Knight Rider episode K.R.O., broadcast 27 October 1997, is dedicated to Edward Mulhare's memory.
