Actor. Best remembered for playing Captain Frank McNeil in the TV detective series "Kojak" (1973 to 1978). The idea of acting appealed to him during his youth and at the age of fourteen, he made his introduction to audiences in a production with the WPA's Federal Theatre Project. While serving with the Special Services in the US Army during World War II, Frazer was able to continue attaining experience in theatre and following his return home, he initiated his association with Broadway in "Christopher Blake" (1946 to 1947). He launched what was to become a lengthy career in television with "Studio One in Hollywood" (1950), followed by roles in the series "The Phil Silvers Show", "Car 54, Where Are You?", "The Untouchables", among others and made his motion picture debut playing Father Murphy in the memorable "Lilies of the Field" (1963). Frazer's most identifiable role was his playing of Telly Savalas' superior during the five season run of "Kojak". (bio by: C.S.)

I loved your character Captain McNeil in Kojak. I am currently watching all 6 seasons and movies. Great days not forgotten. Thanks for the memories. To live in the hearts and thoughts of those left behind is not to die.
