Lang Jeffries

Lang Jeffries (June 7, 1930—February 12, 1987) was a Canadian-American actor of television and film who was married to actress Rhonda Fleming (born 1923) from 1960-1962. Jeffries was born in Ontario, Canada. He was living in Michigan at the time he procured his Social Security number. Jeffries served in the United States Army during the Korean War and was among only three survivors of his 177-man unit that landed in Inchon, South Korea, in the fall of 1950, in a mass landing conducted by general Douglas MacArthur. From 1958-1960, Jeffries procured his first and most successful acting role, that of Skip Johnson, in all seventy-three episodes of the syndicated adventure series Rescue 8, with co-star Jim Davis (1909-1981) as Wes Cameron. The Screen Gems program offered heart-warming accounts of difficult rescues completed by the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Davis was later cast as the indomitable Jock Ewing of CBS's prime time soap opera Dallas.
