The Bold and the Beautiful’s Charlie Webber isn’t exactly someone you would call in the midst of a pressing emergency. But he and Pam Douglas are exactly the ones you’d contact if you were in need of party planners and/or caterers. In fact, the character could probably handle the preparations necessary for the celebration of actor Dick Christie’s very special milestone.
Happy Birthday, Dick Christie!
And that’s because he was born on October 21, 1948, in Malibu, California, which means that this much-beloved actor is turning 73 years old today! Christened Richard Leslie Johnson, Christie made his acting debut in the 1979 picture The Last Word.
That was followed by guest appearances in episodes of The Ropers and Eight Is Enough, as well as the made-for-television film Enola Gay: The Men, the Mission, the Atomic Bomb. Subsequently, he appeared in the films Any Which Way You Can, Honky Tonk Freeway, and Looker.
In 1985, Christie accepted an offer to join the inaugural cast of the science fiction sitcom Small Wonder in the role of Ted Lawson – it would become the part for which he is best known. The series followed the adventures of a family who adopted the father’s latest creation: a robotic child whom they named Vicki.
Christie’s other acting credits include episodes of Ace Crawford…Private Eye, Knots Landing, Mama’s Family, Hunter, Who’s the Boss, Days of our Lives, and Breaking Bad. He has played BB’s Charlie since October 2013.
Outside of acting, Christie is known for his skills as a writer. He fashioned the story on which four Small Wonder scripts were based and he personally wrote one episode of the series. He also authored the 1999 feature film, Molly, which starred 80s darling, Elisabeth Shue.
