As you might remember, Richard played the role of Oscar Goldman, the boss of a U.S. astronaut who was injured so severely in a crash that the government decided to rebuild his body with artificial limbs.

The show started as a TV movie in 1973 but when the producers saw that it was a hit, they decided to make a weekly TV series. Three years later, in 1976, the spin-off show "The Bionic Woman" was created.

The cyborg's name was Steve Austin, a character that was played by Lee Majors in "The Six Million Dollar Man." After Richard's death, Lee

about him in an interview with Fox:

"Richard became a dear and loyal friend, and I have never met a man like him. I called him 'Old Money.' His always stylish attire, his class, calmness and knowledge never faltered in his 91 years."

Majors said that Anderson had talked to his friends a couple of weeks ago and he was still the same charming man he had always been.


During that time, Anderson portrayed Oscar Goldman in both series. From time to time, we could even see him in both shows in the same week.
