Life has never been easy. Nor is it meant to be. It is a matter of being joyous in the face of sorrow.

We all know Dirk as Dirk Benedict, but Dirk was born in Montana on March 1st, 1945 as Dirk Niewoehner. 
He was raised in the country, far away from anything connected with movies or acting. 
The college production of 'Showboat", was the first time he acted. Dirk had the main part. 
Dirk had a tough time when he was 18 years old, because his father died then.  
Georgia Georgia was the very first movie Dirk was in. 
When Dirk was around 30, his doctors told him he had prostate cancer. Dirk chose nothing to do with an operation or chemo. 
He chose to change his food and put himself on macrobiotic diet, which was very hard to do in the first place. Dirk normally ate the food that the other American boys ate,
hamburgers, french fries, pizzas etc.. more of that unhealthy stuff. 
So his life started all over.
You know, actually it's not even a real diet, it's a kind of life style. But the macrobiotic diet was succesful. 
Dirk was healthy and had no more cancer.
If you want to know more about Dirk Benedict and his macrobiotic diet you can read his book:
Confessions of a Kamikaze Cowboy you can also read his other book, 
And Than We Went Fishing. In the second book you can read more about his father's death. 
So Dirk started to act in the movie Georgia Georgia, but we all know him better as lieutenant Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica in 1978. 
And of course The A-team as lieutenant Templeton 'Face' Peck in 1983. 
In 2007 Dirk appeared in Celebrity Big Brother. 
In 1986 Dirk married Toni Hudson. They get two sons, George and Roland. They divorced in 1995. In 1998, Dirk learned that he also has another son, John, born in 1968, from early relationship.
