"It doesn't matter if you're big and tall or ugly or pretty. Deep inside, every actor wants to play Hamlet--at least I hope he does, because that's the craft."
--Ted Cassidy
Ted Cassidy is best known for his portrayal of Lurch, the butler at the Addams Family house, but he portrayed many other characters, too. This site is in memory of Ted Cassidy.

Ted Cassidy could display a wide array of emotions without saying a word! My screen shots will depict many of Lurch's antics. Just click on one of these pictures of Lurch to go to my Addams Family Screen Shots page.



"I try to keep my feelings out of the role. Sometimes I slip." --Ted Cassidy on always having to fight the image of being a "dumb, untalkative giant" throughout his life.


Ahh...Thing. Always there when you need him. Always there to "lend a hand." But WHICH hand? Was he a lefty or a righty? Was he ambidextrous? Click on Thing's picture for episode-by-episode "Thing Trivia."

Thing starts the music for Lurch's dance lesson.

"I played Thing. I always have."--Ted Cassidy, Starlog magazine
Yes, that is true, but what about the episodes in which both Lurch AND Thing appeared in the same scene? See a list of those episodes on my "Thing Trivia" page.

Cassidy in "Women's Prison Escape"

I have never been able to find much information on Cassidy, and I always wondered what he looked like in roles other than "Lurch." Here is a screen shot of Cassidy in the 1974 movie, Women's Prison Escape. Click on his picture to see many more screen shots from his many other roles.
