American actor George Maharis, 92, rose to prominence in the early 1960s after he starred in the first three seasons of the popular TV series Route 66.

But his rise was short-lived, as he stopped getting casting calls and received very few opportunities after his series departure. The reason for that was an incident that disclosed his concealed sexuality.

Maharis Hasn't Done Anything Significant Since His Exit From 'Route 66'

After quitting the series, the actor showed up in very few acting projects. 

According to IMDb, George's last few acting projects were in the early 1990s, including the movie Doppelganger (1993) and the T.V. series Murder, She Wrote (1990). Since retirement, the former star lives in Beverly Hills, overseeing his investments and creating impressionistic oil paintings. His paintings can be seen at the Elizabeth Collection in Rochester, N.Y.
