Coward began acting in the Wild West amusement park Ghost Town in the Sky in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. Coward got the role as the murderous toothless mountain man in Deliverance when Burt Reynolds remembered him from working together at the park early in his career. Coward turned up for the audition looking so much like a hillbilly that director John Boorman, who had trouble finding an actor for the part, thought Reynolds had told him what to wear.
