The High Chaparral

Guest Stars

The High Chaparral  had notable guest stars nearly every week, some famous, some soon-to-be-famous, some great character actors and many others.  If you are wondering if someone guest starred on HC or in which episodes, you can find them in the alphabetical pages below where you will also find photos from most of their appearances.  These credits, for more than 320 guests, are mostly taken from the official NBC story line press kits.  They also include most, but not all, of the actors listed in the closing credits.  Of course, many actors in the series were not credited at all.  I continue to add guests and photos as I can identify them.

Kathleen Crowley as The Countess Maria 
"Once on a Day in Spring"

       Guest stars are also listed by episode in the second table below.  If you want to know more about a particular guest's career, enter their name in one of the TV/Movie data sites listed on the Links page.

We could use your help to identify these mystery guests.

Interesting Notes:  
Michael Keep is credited in the most episodes (6) of any guest star and was the only one credited in all four seasons.  He played a variety of Apache chiefs, including Cochise, Chief Natchez, Chiopana, Red Eagle, and Chief Tobar.  The only other guest credited with six episodes is Henry Wills who played a variety of small parts, credited and not credited, in many episodes of all four seasons.  He was also the stunt coordinator for the series, so his name is in the closing credits of every episode for that.  If you spot him in some episode I don't have listed yet, let me know and I will try to catch him.

William Tannen is Bob the Bartender in "Shadows on the Land"  then a few episodes later he is Mike the Bartender in "The Kinsman", both at the saloon in Tucson.
