Plunged into entertainment industry since he was still a kid, Kurt Vogel Russell successfully has built a good prolific career along the way to keep shining as one of the fine actors people would always cherish of. Looking up on the fact that he is the son of actor Bing Russell, best known for his role of Deputy Clem Foster in NBC TV series "Bonanza", certainly it was not hard for everyone to deduce how this Springfield, Massachusetts native could flourish an interest in acting at such a young age then. Born on March 17, 1951, the boy fortunately did not have to wait long enough to commence his journey in the field as Walt Disney Studios surprisingly took notice on his talent and eagerly signed him to a one-decade contract by the 1960s.
