Best known to TV audiences as Dr. Richard Kimball’s sister in The Fugitive, Jacqueline Scott was part of Quinn Martin’s group of (sorta) repertory performers who showed up in one role or another. She made at least four appearances on The FBI.
Born in Missouri, Ms. Scott began her acting career in the late 1950s, appearing in various television programs. One of Ms. Scott’s guest roles was on Richard Diamond, Private Detective in 1959. The show’s star was none other than David Janssen, who would go on to play her TV brother (and title character) in the 1963-67 Quinn Martin series The Fugitive.
Ms. Scott appeared at the East Coast Twilight Zone Convention on 12-13 August 2006 in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ.

Henry Silva quit public school to attend drama classes at the age of 13, supporting himself as a dishwasher in a Manhattan hotel. By 1955, Silva had moved up from dishwasher to waiter, and felt ready to audition for the Actors Studio. He was one of five students chosen out of more than 2500 applicants. When the Studio staged Michael Gazzo's play, A Hatful of Rain, as a classroom project, it proved so successful it came to Broadway, with students Ben Gazzara, Shelley Winters, Harry Guardino, Tony Franciosa and, of course, Henry Silva in key roles.
Called to Hollywood, he played a succession of "heavies" in films including The Bravados (1958), Green Mansions (1959), Ocean’s Eleven (1960), The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and Johnny Cool (1963). He displayed that talent in three episodes of The FBI between 1967 and 1974.
An Italian producer made Henry Silva an offer he couldn't refuse—to star as a hero for a change—and he moved his family overseas. Mr. Silva’s turning-point picture, the Spaghetti Western The Hills Run Red (1966), made him a hot box office commodity in Spain, Italy, Germany and France. His popularity was enhanced by a flair for the kind of gritty, realistic roles which also catapulted Charles Bronson (also a guest on The FBI) to European stardom, and a gift for languages. He speaks Italian and Spanish flawlessly.
