Spouses

Because of episodes with Peter and Shera together, and people like John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands (separately), I can't help wondering how many spouses of Columbo actors would've worked on the show.

Re: Spouses

I think it would've been a fan's dream come true to see George C. Scott (husband of Trish Van Devere) as a murderer! There have to be more...

Re: Spouses

Robert Culp was married to France Nuyen.

Re: Spouses

They were already long divorced before Culp made his first appearance. He left his previous wife (and mother of all his kids) for Nuyen as a result of an "I Spy" they did. The marriage only lasted a couple years. When Culp did a commentary for that episode in the late 90s I think he kept referring to her as "Miss Nuyen".
