He usually played swashbuckling action heroes in the 1950s and 1960s, but never quite achieved movie-star status.Among his most notable achievements were two TV series: Zorro in the title role, and as the father of the Robinson family on the popular sci-fi series Lost in Space. During most of the 1970s, Guy Williams frequently visited and worked in television shows in Argentina, where he was most revered. Read more on Wikipedia
