For five seasons between 1974 and 1978, actor Lee Majors played Col. Steve Austin, test pilot and former astronaut on the mega-popular television show The Six Million Dollar Man.
Majors, 72, who is still living in California and working in the film and TV industry, will be appearing in Toronto at FanExpo this weekend, which gave CBCNews.ca reporter and bionic fanboy Mark Gollom the opportunity (or excuse) to interview his childhood idol.
CBCNews.ca: Then they started to introduce more bionic people.
Majors: They brought in the bionic boy.
CBCNews.ca: You know what, I wanted to be the bionic boy.
Majors: Then they brought in the dog. And I said, "Wait a minute, you take the dog Max, and you take him over to Lindsay's show.
I have to admit that I never watched the show, but I liked the opening scene each week. Having grown up with the advent of TV in NYC, I have fond memories of the early days of TV. Paix, mon ami.
