Nicholas Pryor

Biography: American character actor Nicholas Pryor has played his share of weak or ineffectual characters, but can exert authority and strength if the need arises. One of the busiest actors on the daytime-drama scene, Pryor has been a regular on such soapers as All My Children (he was the third of four actors to play Link Tyler) Young Dr. Malone, The Nurses, Another World, The Edge of Night, Love is a Many Splendored Thing and The Nurses. His prime-time TV roles include John Quincy Adams II in The Adams Chronicles (1976), vice principal Jack Felspar in Bronx Zoo (1987), and chancellor Arnold in Beverly Hills 90210 (1990- ).
