William de Clerq Reynolds, born in Los Angeles, began his film career in 1951, one year after his marriage to Molly Sinclair. The handsome actor portrayed many authority figures, both in the movies and on television. He managed to display a wide emotional range, as evidenced by his tour-de-force performance as "Lt. Fitzgerald" in the 12 February 1960 episode of The Twilight Zone (1959), episode The Twilight Zone: The Purple Testament (1960).

Reynolds also had a close relationship with Jack Webb. He had the lead role in Pete Kelly's Blues (1959), and had a memorable guest spot as "Sgt. William Riddle" on Dragnet 1967 (1967). His last role was on the Webb-produced series, Project U.F.O. (1978). His greatest success was as "Special Agent Tom Colby" (1967-1973) on The F.B.I. (1965).

Dark-haired American actor William Reynolds was Ivy-League material, a handsome, clean-cut, up-and-coming contract player during the 1950s who seemed to play everybody's son at one point or another--sometimes studious, sometimes loyal, sometimes spoiled--in predominantly "B" pictures. He was born William de Clerq Reynolds of Norwegian descent in 1931 in Los Angeles, California. He lost his mother at age 5 and was sent to boarding schools. His first taste of show biz came while enrolled at the Pasadena City College in their radio department. After being noticed in some minor theater roles by a talent agent, he was briefly signed by Paramount at age 18 but his more noticeable work was done at Universal when that studio signed him in 1952. He seemed to specialize for a while in playing everyone's son, as he did with Laurence Olivier in Carrie (1952). He played one of the Dalton boys in The Cimarron Kid (1952), Jane Wyman's son in All That Heaven Allows (1955), and Fred MacMurray's son in There's Always Tomorrow (1955). Overshadowed by the studio's push for glamor guys Rock Hudson and Tony Curtis, Reynolds was left struggling in the secondary ranks along with other overlook
