Biography of David Wayne

David Wayne (1914-1995), born Wayne McMeekan, was a theater, movie and television actor. He originated roles in Broadway productions including Finian's Rainbow (1947), Mister Roberts (1948) and The Teahouse of the August Moon (1953). He won two Tony Awards and was an early member of the Actors Studio. His movie work included Adam's Rib (1949), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), The Tender Trap (1955), and The Andromeda Strain (1971). His career spanned the 1930s through the 1980s.
