Actor Wayne Crawford

Wayne David Crawford (1947 – April 30, 2016) was an American film and television actor, and film producer, screenwriter, and director. Crawford appeared in nearly thirty films, produced fifteen, wrote nine, and directed seven.

Crawford received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida Atlantic University and served at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts teaching directing for their School of Filmmaking.

He portrayed the title character in the film Jake Speed, which he also co-wrote and co-produced. Variety Movie Guide said his portrayal was “well played,” and that he delivered his lines “as an old-fashioned paperback hero would – in clichés.” He directed and starred in Crime Lords, which was called “predictable” by DVD & video guide 2005 while the Variety TV Review called it unpretentious and entertaining.

He co-wrote and co-produced the film Valley Girl with Andrew Lane. He fought against the studio to ensure that Martha Coolidge was maintained as the director.
