Born Krekor Ohanian on August 15, 1925, in Fresno, California, US, he is best known for playing detective Joe Mannix in the CBS television series, Mannix. Athletic Connors has never thought he would ever become an actor while he was studying law at UCLA on a basketball scholarship. But after spending time in the Air Force, Connors saw acting as a future career perspective, all on the advice of producer/director William Wellman. Hollywood changed young Mr. Ohanian's last name to Connors, and along with the surname the actor got a suitably rugged first name, i.e., Touch. That's how the world got acquainted with Touch Connors in the early 1950s. Among his early roles on the big screen, as most notable can be mentioned his parts in critically acclaimed John Wayne film, Island in the Sky (1953) and Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments (1956). As for his small screen roles, they are numerous, including guest-starring on Hey, Jeannie!, The People's Choice, City Detective and State Trooper, among others. Having renamed himself "Mike", Connors would reach the peak of his fame starring in the three TV series CBS' Tightrope (1959-1960), CBS' Mannix (1967-1975) and ABC's Today's F.B.I. (1981-1982). With a resume containing countless other projects, aging Connors spends his days away from Hollywood's glare. He currently lives with his wife in Encino, California. The couple has two children together.
