Which actor appeared in every episode of “M*A*S*H”?
The television sitcom M*A*S*H ran for 11 years, spanning 251 episodes. During this period, Alan Alda was the only actor to appear in every episode. Alda, who portrayed Captain Benjamin Franklin “Hawkeye” Pierce, commuted from Los Angeles to his New Jersey home every weekend for 11 years while starring on the show. He was the first person ever to win Emmy Awards for acting, directing, and writing for the same show. Loretta Swit (Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan) was a close second in terms of longevity, appearing in all but 11 episodes.
The correct answer is Alan Alda.
