Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

You know, I never paid much attention to who was the lead, who was the second banana, where was I -- was I the fifth banana? -- whatever. I had a zest for life. And I was rather impractical about my career. I was never career oriented. I was more life oriented. So I didn't really care about billing and stuff.

Trivia:

Bo Svenson was appointed Sports Commissioner for the 2015 Special Olympics judo event being held at his old alma mater, UCLA. See more »
