TriviaBroke into the entertainment field as a stunt man and stand-in for actor Anthony Perkins. Reliable over the years for playing boyish-faced bullies in westerns and police dramas. Best remembered today as astronaut Frank Poole in the Stanley Kubrick futuristic epic 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Ironically, Lockwood's Frank Poole character (from "2001") learns about Star Trek's success in the novel "3001: A Final Oddyssey". Attended UCLA on a football scholarship. While appearing in "Star Trek" (1966)'s second pilot episode, "Where No Man Has Gone Before", he was required to wear heavy silver contact lenses for his character. Lockwood had difficulty wearing the lenses as they were heavy, thick, and only had one tiny hole for him to see through. He claimed afterward that the lenses were to blame for his later vision problems.
