Johnny Crawford was born to Betty and Robert Lawrence Crawford, Sr.; his older brother Robert Jr., is also an actor. Johnny together with his father and brother was nominated for Emmy Awards in 1959. Thus, he was raised in a family full of actors and musicians, and under the influence of that, his professional acting career began while he was a child. He attended Hollywood High School, from which he matriculated in 1964.

Johnny`s career began in the 1950s, when he was still a child, appearing firstly in the “The Pinky Lee Show” (1950). Six years later, he became more focused on acting, being cast in such TV series as “The Lone Ranger” (1956), “Telephone Time” (1956-1957) and “Make Room for Daddy” (1956-1958). However, in 1958, he was chosen for the role of Mark McCain in the highly popular TV series “Rifleman” (1958-1963), which increased his net worth by a large degree. After the series ended, Johnny looked for another long-term commitment, and managed to land roles in such productions as “Indian Paint” (1965), “Village of the Giants”  and “The Restless Ones” both in 1965 and then appeared in “El Dorado” (1966), with John Wayne and Robert Mitchum in lead roles. Before the end of the decade, he also starred in “Hawaii Five-O” (1968), and “The Big Valley” (1969), among others, all of which increased his net worth.

In the 1970s Johnny`s career declined somewhat, and he appeared only in minor roles in films and TV series such as “The Naked Ape” (1973), “The Inbreaker” (1974), and “The Great Texas Dynamite Chase” (1976), but certainly increased his net worth.

His fame returned in the 1980s, as he appeared in such popular productions as “Macbeth” (1981), “The All American Cowboy” (1985), and “William Tell” (1987-1988), among others, all of which added to his net worth.

Before he decided to retire, Johnny made several appearances in the 1990s, in films and TV series such as “The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw” (1991), in which he repeated his role from the “Rifleman”, “Rupert Patterson Wants to be a Super Hero” (1997), and “The Thirteenth Floor” (1999).

Johnny has also been recognized as a musician, and ever since 1992, he has been the leader of a California-based vintage dance orchestra, with which he has released one album “Sweepin’ the Clouds Away” in 2012, which has also increased his net worth somewhat.

Regarding his personal life, Johnny Crawford has been married to Charlotte Samco since 1995, although now apparently separated. He is also known as a former member of the AJRA (American Junior Rodeo Association) and the PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association).
