Robert Ito, actor If you recognize the face then you were, more than likely, a fan of the series Quincy, but Quincy was a long way from where Robert Ito began.
Born July 2, 1931, there is no doubt that Robert Ito would grow up to become a performer. He wanted to be on stage from the very start, but interestingly, not as an actor. Fact is, he started out as a dancer and heard the warm sound of applause when he was just five years old. His family had entered him in an amateur tap-dancing contest, and he won $25. As he grew, he auditioned for and was accepted at the National Ballet of Canada, where he spent 10 years as a performer. He then headed to New York City, where he had landed a featured role in the Broadway production of F lower Drum Song. As anyone who knows anything about dancing will confess, it isn't a career you can stay in forever. Much like professional sports, the wear and tear begins to take its toll, and the older you are the harder it is to find work. Knowing this, Ito decided to move his considerable talent into film, and so he headed west.

Ito was interested in "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai" from the moment he heard the pre-production rumours. Determined to get the Hikita role, he hobbled into his audition, masquerading as an old man. Complemented by thirty years worth of old-age makeup which he designed himself, Ito's preliminary performance was so convincing that director Rick Richter hired him on the spot.
Born in Canada, Ito started his show biz career as a dancer, winning a Vancouver amateur contest at age five. "I did a tap dance routine and the prize was a whopping $25 -- a good sum of money at the time," he recalls.
Thus inspired, Ito went on to join the National Ballet of Canada, where he performed in works like "Swan Lake" and "Giselle" for ten years.
The lure of the bright Times Square marquees eventually led him to New York City where he landed a featured role in the Broadway hit "Flower Drum Song. A good part in "What Makes Sammy Run" convinced him to forsake his dancing career for acting. In 1965 he moved to Los Angeles to concentrate his efforts in film and television.
Ito is best known for his regular role as Sam Fujiyama on the NBC series "Quincy," starring Jack Klugman.
...
Ito is married and has two children, Jennifer (21) and Thomas (18).
