  • Quotes

  • The man who loved Suellen on "Dallas"!

    Jared Martin should have been a much larger presence in Hollywood than he ever was. Smart, a graduate of Columbia University, and a real looker, Martin never seemed to catch on fire, even in his heyday as the love interest of Suellen Ewing on "Dallas" in the 1970's and 1980's. Martin also appeared on the science fiction series, "The Fantastic Journey". This series only lasted two months, but brought Martin to the attention of"Dallas" producers and it looked for awhile that J.R.Ewing might just lose his wife to Dusty Farlow, the son of Jock Ewing's arch-enemy Clayton Farlow. Next, Mr. Martin appeared as Dr.Harrison Blackwell on the series version of "War Of The Worlds" from 1988-1990. Jared Martin continued to guest star on a number of series up through the mid 1990's. Today, Mr.Martin is involved with "The Big Picture Alliance" in Philadelphia. He is married to Yu Wei, a classical dancer.moreless
