Birth Name: Billy Drago
Born: 09/18/1949
Birth Place: Hugoton, Texas, USA

A Texas native of American Indian heritage, Drago was cast in Native American roles in his first TV and feature assignments. He had previously worked as a stuntman in a Western theme park in Dodge City, KS. Drago appeared in some plays in college before starting his entertainment career as a disc jockey at small stations in Kansas and Texas. Drago next turned decisively to acting, joining a small ensemble group touring Canada. He eventually landed in NYC where he began amassing credits on stage and TV. His TV credits include guest shots on "Hill Street Blues", "Moonlighting", and "Hunter". In features, Drago can be found in Clint Eastwood's "Pale Rider" and "Invasion U.S.A." (both 1985), and many direct-to-video actioners. He is the father of actor Darren E. Burrows.
