What These Celebs Are Up To Now
Thomas was born in Manhattan in 1951, the son of Barbara Farris and Richard Thomas. His parents are dancers from the New York Ballet and own the New York Ballet School. Richard is best remembered for the catchphrase “G’night, John Boy”, a line from an episode of The Waltons. The actor was born into a showbiz family and many expected that he would make it big in the industry.
With his boyish looks and natural charm, he was the obvious choice to play the young John-Boy in the TV series. It is clear that the actor made significant investments towards his craft over the years. This helped him go from working on TV to big movie productions. He is also a theatre actor and has tried his hand at hosting. He also had a memorable turn as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Musical Christmas Carol. At 69 years old, he is showing no signs of slowing-down.
