'The A-Team' Star Dwight Schultz Is 73 Now and Has a Daughter Who Serves in the Marines
Dwight Schultz from "The A-Team" has come a long way from the man he was while the show aired. He is now a father, and his daughter serves in the marines.
It's been more than three decades since "The A-Team" debuted on NBC. The show followed the misadventures of a four-man band of former US Army Special Forces turned fugitives who went on the run for war crimes they didn't commit.
Like many of the other cast members, Dwight Schultz rose to fame for his stellar performance on the show. He portrayed the mentally unstable Captain H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock.
Although the show's producers had been planning to drop Shultz's character after the series debut, they changed their minds because it became a hit with the audience hence making his character popular.
Murdock was "The A-Team's" craft pilot, and he got his nickname for the time he spent in a mental hospital. The original series ran for five successful years from 1983 to 1987.
It saw people fall deeply in love with all the lovable characters; Bosco Albert Baracus, First Lieutenant Templeton Peck, Colonel John Smith, and Captain H. M. Murdock, as they were forced through different trials and tribulations.
After "The A-Team," Schultz remained all up in people's faces as Lt. Reginald "Reg" Barclay in "Star Trek: The Next Generation."
Schultz met his wife on the set of "The A-Team" and fell completely in love with her.
He went on to reprise the role for "Star Trek: Voyager" and the film "Star Trek: First Contact." Afterward, Schultz would co-star alongside Paul Newman in "Fat Man and Little Boy."
Until 2009, Schultz hosted a conservative radio program titled Howling Mad Radio, but fans still hear his voice because he worked as a voiceover actor on several projects.
Schultz has lent his voice in the making of high-caliber video games like "Spider-Man: Web of Shadows," "FusionFall" and "Terminator Salvation: The Video Game."
His recent work on-screen includes the remake of "The A-Team," which he participated in back in 2010, and "Wolfenstein: The New Order" (2014). His acting career has been great, and so has his relationship life.
He has been married to the same woman, Wendy Fulton, since June 12, 1983. She played the role of Jean Hackney for 23 episodes of "Knots Landing."
Schultz met his wife on the set of "The A-Team" and fell completely in love with her. They have one child, a daughter named Ava who reportedly works in the marines.
