1960

Radames Pera was born in New York City in 1960. He moved to Hollywood with his mother in 1963 so she could pursue an acting career. In 1967 Radames was "discovered" by director Daniel Mann and cast as Stavros, the dying son of Anthony Quinn and Irene Papas, in A Dream of Kings (1969). He got an agent and he ended up guest-starring in many TV shows in the late '60s and throughout the '70s.

This reputation led to his landing the co-starring role of "Grasshopper" (the Young Caine) in the seminal TV series Kung Fu (1972) and later as the writer/poet John Jr. (and fiancé of Mary Ingalls) in Little House on the Prairie (1974). In the summer of 1978 Radames began a three-year intensive study of acting and directing with Stella Adler, first in L.A. and then in New York City. While in New York he played Alan Bates' estranged son in the British feature Very Like a Whale (
