Gordon Jump | Mormon Actors

[sc:top_left_adsense300x250_1] Beginning with bit parts in theatre productions, Gordon Jump’s status as a Mormon actor and celebrity grew slowly but before he made the jump into TV, he was converted to the Mormon faith following his work in a play revolving around the Mormon way of life. This was no small feat, as Sandy Dietlin put it: “Once he joined the Church, he was truly converted, and that is not an easy thing in the theatre business because you are always surrounded by people who have a totally different view of life than you do.”

Once Jump had reached TV his status as a Mormon celebrity grew, with his work and characters in series such as WKRP and the sitcom Soap. This Mormon actor was best known for playing quirky, incompetent characters that were beloved by audiences.
