Bobby Driscoll was an American actor.
Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Driscoll gained his first television role at the age of five, which enabled him to be cast in the war picture The Fighting Sullivans and begin a career as a succesful child actor, particularly after he became the first actor to be taken under contract by Disney, for whom he appeared in a number of films; most notably Peter Pan.
Driscoll also appeared in the immensely successful Treasure Island with Robert Newton, but puberty signalled his decline and he began to only make appearances in television shows and specials. After a long problem with substance abuse, he passed away in 1968.
