Rewind ArchiveRoddy McDowall is one of the few child stars who successfully mastered the transition to adult actor, and in the process, he became part of our collective film memory. Born in England, McDowall had already begun to carve out a niche for himself as a child actor in British films before his family moved to America. Since then, the actor known for both his consistency and professionalism, has worked constantly in theater, film and television. McDowall has appeared in almost every major TV series of the past 20 years and well over 60 feature films, among them "Planet of The Apes" and "Fright Night".
