Pernell was interested in acting and performing from an early age, and during his high school days appeared in church and school plays, in addition to playing the horn. Speaking about his education, Roberts attended Georgia Tech, but ended up leaving without graduating. He also spent two years in the US Marine Corps, from 1946 until 1948. As of 1949, Pernell had a role in ‘’The Man Who Came to Dinner’’, which was also his professional debut on stage, and subsequently spent some time working at the Bryn Mawr College Theatre located in Philadelphia, where he played Dan in ‘’Night Must Fall’’. Roberts took a big step towards his success as he moved to Washington D.C. where he performed in theatre. During this time, however, he had to find other jobs to support himself, not unusual for budding actors at this time.

Having spent two years in Washington D.C., he decided to move to New York, where he sang in one-act operas. Pernell eventually rose to fame when in 1959 he was cast as Adam, one of the main characters in ‘’Bonanza’’, an Emmy Award-winning western television series, in which he had a chance to work alongside Lorne Greene, Michael Landon and Dan Blocker among others. Despite the series’ success, Roberts found this transition from stage actor to a television actor difficult, and eventually ended up leaving ‘’Bonanza’’ in 1965, making negative comments about the type of show, as he was used to being flexible in both roles and locations on set.

Roberts went on to return to theatre, and sometimes acted on television but mostly in minor parts, as he wanted to be free to play diverse characters. As of 1970, he starred in ‘’Four Rode Out’’, portraying US Marshal Ross and acting alongside Sue Lyon. In the mid-70s, he continued acting mostly on television, his appearances included ‘’Bronk’’, ‘’The Quest’’ and ‘’Cannon’’. In 1979, he landed another notable role in ‘’ Trapper John, M.D.’’, playing the title character, in the a total of 151 episodes for seven seasons, and was nominated for six primetime Emmy awards, and in received a mostly positive response from the audience, so adding to his net worth.

In 1981, he starred in the movie entitled ‘’ Incident at Crestridge’’ as mayor Hill, but continued making television appearances, most notably in two episodes of ‘’Diagnosis Murder’’ as George Fallon and Dr. Elliott Valin, a recurring character he played from 1994 until 1997.

In conclusion, this American actor is mostly associated with support roles on television, but nevertheless, his talent allowed him to catch the attention of media and have an influence on the acting world. He appeared in more than 100 projects.

In his private life, Roberts was married four times, firstly with professor Vera Mowry in 1951, and from that marriage, Pernell had his only child, a son Jonathan Christopher Roberts, who died in 1989. He was then married to Judith Anna LeBrecque (1962-71), and Kara Knack (1972-96). He was then married to Dr. Eleanor Criswell from 1997 until he died of pancreatic cancer in 2010, in Malibu, California.

#Quote
1I just didn't enjoy Bonanza (1959) anymore. My contract was up and I left. It became joyless and boring and predictable and I had to get away. But I never said those things people said I said.
2I distinguished myself by flunking out of college three times.
3On playing the same character that Wayne Rogers would've been famous for after M*A*S*H (1972), when he left in 1975: Time is moving along. I'm 51 and I say, 'Well, maybe I better hedge my bet a little and get into something more lucrative so I won't have to find food in the garbage vehicles of America, when I'm old.'
4Who played the same character that Wayne Rogers had created, when he was on M*A*S*H (1972), except Roberts played his mellower than Rogers: I really don't know what the thrust of the series is. Sometimes it's drama, sometimes farce. I have absolutely no input. The actor is the last person the producers want to hear from.
5Who proclaimed about leaving his role on Bonanza (1959), after he appeared in the show's 177 of the 430 episodes: I feel I am an aristocrat in my field of endeavor. My being part of Bonanza (1959) was like Isaac Stern sitting in with Lawrence Welk.
6Who recounted casting for the lead role of Trapper John, M.D. (1979): The beginning of this year, I got a call to come in and talk about the show. 3 weeks later, I was called back to do a screen test. And then, I waited again, until I finally got the word about a week before we shot the pilot that the network had approved me for the part.
7In 1980: I've seen it all before. A hundred times before. Actors on their way up. Actors coasting. It was the same 20 years ago as today.
8Why do a series? It's called paying the rent. It's called paying your dues. But so much depends on timing. Mine was a bit off when I quit Bonanza (1959).
9Who never quite stomach it, who in turn never hid his feelings: There are times when I think we almost manage to transcend our constant lack of good scripts, proper rehearsal and all the other things that bug a man in this business ... Everything on TV is that monster, compromise ... Let's face it, Bonanza (1959) could be really good if the powers-that-be care enough to make it that way.
10Of what led him to do Trapper John, M.D. (1979), when he sounded subdued, almost resigned: I'm getting old. I just turned 51. I need to make a live. I hope that I can be totally responsible for my life till I die. Perhaps I won't have to worry in my later years.
11When questioned if he was sorry for leaving his role on Bonanza (1959): God no! I'm just sorry I wasn't able to get out of my contract and leave sooner. So the other made millions. How much does one person need to live? I've never needed or wanted that much.
12As we get older, we become more political in terms of survival. We realize a certain amount of cunning is necessary and that you just end up in a victim when you are totally honest in an environment where those around you aren't. It's a matter of remaining true to yourself while continuing to move forward. It's also a matter of learning to keep control of one's balance.
13In 1979: I've never been career oriented. Did I even want to be a star? What's a star? Is that something in the heavens? That's the only definition that comes to my mind. And the most important goals in my life have been to move gently to be at ease with the mystery of what it's all about.
14Isn't it just a bit silly for three adult males to get father's permission for everything they do? I haven't grown at all since the series began four years ago. I have an impotent role. Everywhere I turn, there's the father image. - In 1963 when Bonanza (1959) was too remote from reality.
15They told me the four characters [Lorne Greene, myself and Dan Blocker and Michael Landon as brothers] would be carefully defined and the scripts carefully prepared. None of it ever happened. - (In 1964 about the limitations he felt about his character given on-screen for Bonanza (1959).)
16There are times when I think we almost manage to transcend our constant lack of good scripts, proper rehearsal and all the other things that bug a man in this business.... Everything on TV is that monster, compromise.... Let's face it, Bonanza could be really good if the powers-that-be cared enough to make it that way.
17I'm never satisfied with my own work.
18I had six seasons of playing the eldest son on that show. Six seasons of feeling like a damned idiot, going around -- me, like a middle-aged teenager, saying, 'Yes, Pa,' 'No, Pa' on cue. It was downright disgusting -- such dialogue for a grown man. I felt I wasn't being taken seriously as an actor, and that's like death to one's talent...Stuck as Adam Cartwright, I was only able to use about one-tenth of my ability. -- PR on why he left Bonanza (1959)
19I was teaching a Sunday school class at one of the churches in Waycross, Georgia, where I grew up. And the lesson dealt with equality and all of us being one under the eyes of God. All of a sudden it hit me!! This isn't true! The church was - is- the most segregated place one day a week there is in our country. And it's so ironical and so tragic that here's a philosophy which preaches and teaches human understanding and brotherly love and practices, in essence, the most vicious form of human relationship there is.
