John Carroll O’Connor Wiki Biography

John Carroll O’Connor was born on the 2nd August 1924, in Manhattan, New York City USA, of American and Irish descent, and died on the 21st June 2001 in Culver City, California USA. He was an actor, director and producer, who starred in a number of film and TV titles, including “Kelly’s Heroes” (1970), “All In The Family” (1971-79), “Archie Bunker’s Place” (1979-83), and “In The Heat Of The Night” (1988-95). His career was active from 1951 to 2000.

Have you ever wondered how rich was Carroll O’Connor? According to authoritative sources, it was estimated that the total size of Carroll’s net worth was equal to $20 million, which was accumulated through his successful career as a professional actor. Another source of his wealth was his ownership of a restoration shop.

Carroll O’Connor was the eldest son of Edward Joseph O’Connor, who was a lawyer, and his wife, Elise Patricia O’Connor. After matriculation, he went to Wake Forest University in North Carolina, but soon quit education because of the World War II. He was rejected by the U.S. Navy, so he served in the United States Merchant Marine Academy. When the war was finished, he enrolled at the University of Montana-Missoula, where he worked as an editor for a student newspaper, but he didn’t graduate there, as he moved to Ireland where he finished his studies at the University of Dublin.

Carroll`s career began in the 1950s, appearing on stage throughout European cities, including Dublin, London, and Paris. However, his breakout came in the late 1950s in the Broadway production of “Ulysses”, which certainly helped his career as he then made a screen debut in the TV series “Sunday Showcase” (1960). During the 1960s, Carroll made numerous brief appearances in TV series such as “The Untouchables” (1961-1962), “The Naked City” (1962), “The Defenders” (1962-1963), “Dr. Kildare” (1962-1965), “Profiles in Courage” (1965), among others, which helped boost his career and net worth. He also made several notable appearances in films “Point Blank” (1967) with Lee Marvin and Angie Dickinson, “Death Of A Gunfighter” (1968), and in the TV series “All In The Family” (1968-1979), the latter increasing his net worth by a large margin. After “All In The Family” finished, his character Archie got his own series “Archie Bunker’s Place” (1979-1983), in which Carroll reprised his role, which also increased his net worth.

In the 1970s, Carroll appeared in films too, such as “Kelly`s Heroes” (1970) with Clint Eastwood and Telly Savalas, “Law And Disorder” (1974), “Of Thee I Sing” (1972), and “The Last Hurrah” (1977), among others, all of which added a lot to his net worth.

Nothing changed much for Carroll in the next decade, as he had several notable roles, including those as Chief William O. ‘Bill’ Gillespie in the crime drama TV series “In the Heat Of The Night” (1988-1995), and he also voiced Santa in the animated film “The GLO Friends Save Christmas” (1985).

As he was focused on the series “In The Heat Of The Night”, Carroll didn`t look for new roles, however, after it had ended he landed the role of Jacob Gordon in another TV series, entitled “Party Of Five” (1996). The same year he was selected for the role of Gus Temple in the TV series “Mad About You”, and latterly made appearances in films “Gideon” (1998), and “Return To Me” (2000), which also increased his net worth by a large margin.

Thanks to his skills, Carroll received several prestigious nominations and awards, including a Golden Globe Award in category Best TV Actor – Comedy or Musical for his work on “All In The Family”, and 10 Golden Globe Award nominations for “All In The Family”, and “In The Heat Of The Night”. Furthermore, he won six Primetime Emmy Awards, five for “All In The Family”, and one for “In The Heat Of The Night”, among many other awards. Speaking about his personal life, Carroll O’Connor was married to Nancy Fields from 1951 untilhe passed away from a heart attack caused by diabetes, at the age of 76 in 2001. They had an adopted son.

John Carroll O’Connor Quotes

  • [on auditioning for Archie Bunker] I was approached in 1968 and [a producer had] secured the rights to a show that was a big success in England and it was called ‘Till Death Us Do Part,’ I thought we’d never do a show that outrageous in this country. And I wanted to do something outrageous. I didn’t think we’d last a month.
  • [At one point, All in the Family (1971), was getting cancelled]: I thought that the public would kick us off the air, because of this egregious guy. No. They loved … they knew him.
  • [Who moved on with his life after his son’s death]: The biggest part of my life was the acquiring and the loss of a son. I mean, nothing else was as important as that.
  • [on his popularity while playing the fifty-something Archie Bunker on All in the Family]: Archie is what he is. He is over 50 and you can’t expect any turnover in his character. He might modify his racist language in the house because he grows tired of his wife and kids jumping all over him. I am not playing Archie with any axe to grind. As I have said before, Archie is made up of persons who really exist. I have seen them.
  • [In 1974]: Television audiences are seeing more of the good and admirable qualities of blacks than they have ever seen before. Some of these shows are causing the fears that underlie prejudice to be a bit dissipated.
  • [Who told his congressman, who got elected, despite the fact that he was Polish]: The Polacks voted for him to get even with the Irish for tellin’ all those Polish jokes; the Italians voted for him to prove it was the Irish; and the colored people voted for him ’cause they like Polish jokes and they thought he was the best one yet.
  • [Who cursed one critic vehemently, called critics in general, jerks]: I concluded too many of you don’t know what you’re doing.
  • [When approached to do The Last Hurrah]: I say okay, but I wanted to see the Tracy movie. So I did. I didn’t think I could repeat what I saw on the screen, so I said, ‘Let me see the old screenplay … maybe what was on the screen wasn’t the screenplay.’
  • [In 1972]: It happens everytime I wear this here suit. I get a helluva hand.
  • [In 1976]: I’m going to keep the bigotry Edwin O’Connor had in the novel, but I’m going to play it as an undertone rather than as the main theme.
  • [When asked to explain the remarks, he replied]: I think you all have been in a position where you all have said something out of pure emotion that is not all true. There are semi-literates. They write bad grammar. A lot of them copy what other people write and add a little twist of their own so that it appears the local boy has the inside track.
  • Nothing will give me any peace. I’ve lost a son. And I’ll go to my grave without any peace over that.
  • Get between your kids and drugs any way you can if you want to save the kid’s life.
  • People see Archie Bunker everywhere. Particularly girls-poor girls, rich girls, all kinds of girls are always coming up to me and telling me that Archie is just like their dad.
  • Get between your kid and drugs any way you can.
