"Tuning in 'Alias Smith and Jones' is one of the most exciting things I do!" confessed a devoted fan of Ben Murphy's...and judging by the letters TiGER BEAT is receiving, she's just one of many who feels that way!
Good-looking Ben, whose show business career really began to soar on "Name of the Game" several years back, claims his desire to act came about all of a sudden: "I was just preoccupied with school, not giving too much thought to the future, and wound up going to eight different colleges before realizing that acting was what I really wanted to do! So I packed up and headed for California, became a member of the Pasadena Playhouse, and decided to let fate guide me from there!"
"Fate" turned out being lucky for Ben, as he landed roles in the movies "Yours, Mine and Ours," "The Graduate," "The Thousand Plane Raid" and numerous TV shows. It seems only natural with the luck Ben is accustomed to that he should be starring in his own series at this time!
Ben's all-time favorite thing to do is
go to the movies, especially with people he's just met. He loves
blind dates and never tires of being introduced to new people.
When Ben has time to himself he enjoys of being introduced to
new people. When Ben has time to himself he enjoys tennis and
skiing, and just getting in his car and traveling non-stop for
miles and miles. "There's so much left to be discovered,"
he believes, "and I intend to do a lot of it!"
