Rona Barrett's Hollywood
September 1980


The thirty-one-year old mild-mannered Deputy Birdwell Hawkins on NBC-TV's Sheriff Lobo series is anything but that when he's cruising through his own digs in suburban Hollywood.


Brian's misadventures in medical school led him to acting. As the son of a Chicago area doctor, Brian switched from medicine to drama after one month in pre-med and set out for Southern California. After completing all the required courses and picking up his degree, Brian went to New York where he latched onto a running part in The Young and the Restless soap opera. The trip from that daytime hit to his Lobo bonanza is a story in itself but it's just one of many stories this six-foot bachelor would love to unravel for you when you step into his very un-Loboish pad.
