Armando Joseph Catalano a.k.a. Guy Williams (January 14, 1924 – April 30, 1989) was an Italian-American actor and model.

He is best remembered as Don Diego de la Vega / Zorro in the eponymous 1950s series and as Professor John Robinson in Lost in Space.

His charisma and good looks ensured him a successful photographic model and TV lead career, but he never achieved bona fide movie stardom.


Tropes in his works:

  • Badass Mustache: As Don Diego de la Vega / Zorro, of course.
  • Cast the Expert: He was a fencer, and put his skills to good use in Zorro.
  • Fake Nationality: He played Don Diego de la Vega / Zorro despite having no Spanish nor Latino background (his parents were immigrants from Sicily, Italy). Add to that he was from New York and not California — California was Spanish then Mexican at the time the Zorro stories take place.
