George Segal was born in Great Neck, New York, in 1934. He had a magic act there when he was ten and has been performing ever since.
A veteran of stage, television and film, Segal has amassed an impressive resume of projects that run the gamut from the lightest of comedies to the most heart-wrenching of dramas.
He first gained critical attention as a distraught newlywed in Ship of Fools and as a P.O.W. in King Rat. He went on to garner an Oscar® nomination for his performance as Nick in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Among his many feature comedies are Where’s Poppa?, The Owl and the Pussycat, A Touch of Class, Fun With Dick and Jane, Flirting With Disaster and Blume in Love.
Segal resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Sonia.
