He entered Los Angeles City College with the intention of becoming a doctor, but got sidetracked into the dramatics department. A stint at the Pasadena Playhouse (where fellow students included Charles Bronson, Carolyn Jones and Aaron Spelling) led to roles on stage and in films; the starring role (as Cochise) on the popular television series Broken Arrow (1956) elevated Ansara to stardom. During the series' run of Broken Arrow, he met actress Barbara Eden on a date arranged by the 20th Century-Fox publicity department. The couple married in 1958 and in 1961 both co-starred in Irwin Allen's film Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
