“He wasn’t too far from the characters that he played,” the now-68-year-old shared. “He was a very well-known, established character actor even before ‘I Love Lucy.’ And in those days, when it came to doing a television series, there were only three networks. And when you tune in to a TV series, 25 million other people were watching. So his fame really exploded. But on set, he just loved to make my brother and I laugh.”
