Richard Dean Anderson is my favorite actor. What can you tell me about him, and where can I write to him?
A: The 53-year-old Minneapolis native dreamed of being a hockey player as a young man, then studied drama in college, and - after a free-spirited period working as everything from a mine to a fish feeder at Marineland - he began appearing in plays.
He came to national attention as Dr. Jeff Weber on "General Hospital", but it was as ABC's "MacGyver" that he became a household name. Romantically, the never-married Anderson has been linked to such beauties as Sela Ward, Marlee Matlin, Teri Hatcher and Katarina Witt. He has a 4-year-old daughter, Wylie Quinn Annarose Anderson, by Apryl Prose.
