Birth Name Arthur John Miles Anderson

He was an actor, known for Midnight Cowboy (1969), Courage the Cowardly Dog (1999) and Dark Shadows (1966). He was married to Alice Anderson. He died on April 9, 2016 in Manhattan, New York City, New York.

He began his career as a boy actor in Orson Welles's Mercury company and also worked with Welles in radio, playing Jim Hawkins in his version of "Treasure Island".

He was highly critical of the film Me and Orson Welles (2008), which was about a fictitious actor (played by Zac Efron) who is fired from Orson Welles's stage production of "Julius Caesar" in 1937. The Efron character is playing the small role of "Lucius" in the play, and is fired out of spite by Welles because they are rivals over a girl. In reality, it was Anderson who played Lucius, and, in 2009, he pointed out to interviewers that (a) there had been no romantic rivalries between himself and Welles (Anderson was only fourteen at the time); (b) he was not fired; (c) no one else was fired, either; (d) he had never known any actor to be fired from an Orson Welles production, and he had worked on several others; and (e) Welles had always treated him with exemplary kindness.

From 1963 to 1992, he was the voice of the cartoon leprechaun Lucky the Leprechaun in TV ads for Lucky Charms cereal, popularizing the catchphrase, "They're magically delicious.".
