Trivia (2)

Daughters: Winita - born 9/4/1954; Lewellyn - born 5/21/1957.
His nickname "Blade" was given to him in 1967, when he arrived in Hollywood and did guest shots on one of many western television series directed by Virgil W. Vogel, who gave him the nickname because he said Ed's profile was so strong, it could cut the screen like a knife--hence "Blade" was all he ever called him and the name stuck.
