Finding The Money
Money is no issue for Hollywood’s elite, but what about the up-and-coming actors who haven’t gotten their big break yet? Before he hit it big, Elliott worked part-time in construction to help pay the bills between auditions.
An Outdoors Kid
Born in Sacramento, California in 1944, Elliott moved to Oregon as a young child. His father worked in wildlife conservation for the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This inspired a great love of nature in Elliott, but it never deterred him from his dream of being an actor. Elliott’s father’s disapproval of his son’s career choice would eventually strain their relationship.
