Hank Stratton

Character actor Hank Stratton began his professional career in the late 1980s, specializing at first in low budget science- fiction and other genre films, as well as inexpensively made syndicated TV dramas; one notable role at this stage in his career came as doomed husband Greg Smart opposite Helen Hunt in the fact-based 1991 TV movie "Murder in New Hampshire: The Pamela Wojas Smart Story." Surprisingly, although Stratton worked steadily in television through the 1990s and 2000s in increasingly high-profile shows, it was not until 2004, when he joined the cast of early-1960s period piece "American Dreams" as closeted homosexual travel agent Donald Norville, that he garnered his first recurring role.
