Tragic Stars : Todd Armstrong

Todd Armstrong is known for his role as Jason in Ray Harryhausen's JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS. This would be his only major leading role, appearing in supporting roles afterwards on multiple TV series. His last acting job was in 1982 and Todd killed himself at the age of 55 in 1992. Little is known about him. There are some speculations written about him at his IMDb message board (link) but I can't confirm it. His voice was apparently dubbed for Jason without his knowledge which saddened him.

Apparently director Don Chaffey didn't like Armstrong at all. His co-star Nancy Kovacs found him to be a "troubled" man.
