Friday Morning Man: John Terry! wasn’t until he was 30 years old that John Terry decided to move to New York and try his luck at acting after appearing in a few local theater productions.

Before that, the man who currently plays Nora Walker’s boyfriend, Dr. Karl West, on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters had spent time building custom log homes in North Carolina then moved to Alaska where he helped to start a river rafting company.

The handsome actor, who turns 61 later this month, has worked steadily since the early 80s but has never seemed more in demand than now.

Before sweeping Sally Field’s character off her feet on Brothers & Sisters, John was best known for his recurring role on ABC’s Lost as Christian Shephard, father of the character played by series lead Matthew Fox.

His other recurring or regular roles on TV series include Trauma, Wildfire, Las Vegas, 24, ER, and Against the Grain. Film credits include Full Metal Jacket, A Killing in a Small Town, A Dangerous Woman, Blue Valley Songbird, and Zodiac.

Let’s hope Nora and Dr. Karl find lasting love!

2 Remarks

  1. Don’t forget the Lifetime TV movie he made with Jean Smart, “A Change of Heart”, in which he played her husband and father of her children that came out as gay late in life. John is one handsome man that I would gladly call “Daddy”! John was ever so sexy in the short lived “Against the Grain” (also starring a young Ben Affleck) and it’s one of the few times I’ve actually seen him shirtless. I remember watching the show back in the day and seeing John sitting on the edge of his bed in his boxers has stuck with me to this day.

    Right now John Terry’s character has broken up with Nora on Brothers and Sisters. I hope this doesn’t mean he will totally disappear from the show but men often do on this series.
