James Child Drury, Jr. (born April 18, 1934) is an American actor probably best known for his success in playing the title role in the 90-minute weekly Western television series The Virginian, broadcast on NBC from 1962-1971. With 12-14 hour workdays, the series had perhaps the most demanding production schedules in the history of network television.
