Early life

Markham was born in Manatee County, Florida, the son of Millie Content (née Willbur) and Jesse Edward Markham, Sr., who was a merchant.


Of his television roles, Markham is perhaps most famous for playing the dual role of Luke and Ken Carpenter in the 1967–68 ABC sitcom, The Second Hundred Years, and as Harry Kellem in the original Hawaii Five-O. Another of Markham's best known roles was as the racing-car-driver-turned-cyborg Barney Miller in the second-season episode of The Six Million Dollar Man entitled "The Seven Million Dollar Man," which first aired November 1, 1974. (Markham reprised the role—albeit with a character name change to Barney Hiller—in the third-season episode "The Bionic Criminal," which first aired just over a year later, on November 9, 1975). He appeared as Blanche Devereaux's brother "Clayton" on the NBC sitcom The Golden Girls, and portrayed the criminally insane character called Pike in the episode "Power Play" in the 1975 revival of The Invisible Man. From 1989-1992, he played the role of Captain Don Thorpe, senior lifeguard on Baywatch.


One of his earliest stage experiences was at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in the summer of 1961, where he played Horatio in Hamlet. Markham made his Broadway debut in 1973 in Irene, for which he won the Theatre World Award. He also appeared on stage in Same Time, Next Year.


Markham's film work includes Hour of the Gun, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, Midway and Airport 77. He has served as a consultant, director, producer, and narrator for A&E's Classroom and The Great Ships series.
