People mainly know Bruce for his roles in movies and television shows, but he is more than it.Bruce is a science fiction and a suspense writer and a former model, as well as had a busy voice over career.Moreover, Bruce is known for his relationships which turned sour with his all three partners as well as his ex-wife.Currently, Boxleitner is a regular on the Hallmark Channel original series “Cedar Cove,” but he also continues to keep busy on other projects, including a new holiday film called “Silver Bells,” which makes its small-screen debut on UP TV on Dec. Bullz-Eye had a chance to talk to Boxleitner about both of these projects, along with several other items from his back catalog, but there were actually two conversations: one in person, one on the phone. I did a thing called “Bare Essence” years ago, I’ve done Judith Krantz (“Till We Meet Again”), I’ve done Danielle Steel (“Zoya”)… But I’m married to Peggy Beldon, played by Barbara Niven, and we were born and raised in Cedar Cove, and we run the Time and Tide, which is an inn, a bed and breakfast. So we’re kind of the patriarchal and matriarchal people for the younger characters.
That little story doesn’t shine a very favorable light on Mr.
Bruce Boxleitner has been making a living as an actor since the early ’70s, but there are many who consider the ’80s as the era when he really hit his stride, thanks to him having starred as the title character in “TRON” and following up that success with four seasons as Lee Stetson on CBS’s “Scarecrow and Mrs.
King.” Then, of course, there’s his work during the ’90s as John Sheridan on “Babylon 5,” and…well, basically, what we’re saying is that Bruce Boxleitner’s fanbase is multi-generational. In the past, I’ve done miniseries that were kind of romance-novel things. I have my own little deep secrets that I’m keeping, too, though. [Laughs.] I go to Vancouver – I’m flying up there tonight – I come home on Friday, have a weekend, and then I go back up again.
He is also known for his dual role as the characters Alan Bradley and Tron in the 1982 Walt Disney Pictures film Tron, a role which he reprised in the 2003 video game Tron 2.0, the 2006 Square-Enix/Disney crossover game Kingdom Hearts II, the 2010 film sequel, Tron: Legacy Boxleitner is best known for his leading roles in the television series How the West Was Won, Bring 'Em Back Alive, Scarecrow and Mrs.
King (with Kate Jackson and Beverly Garland), and Babylon 5 (as John Sheridan in seasons 2–5, 1994–98).
