He was born as William Eugene Burrows in Hugoton, Kansas. He became interested in acting and took his mother's maiden name 'Drago', as a stage name. First, he worked as a stuntman in Kansas, then he went to University of Kansas. After he graduated he worked as a radio host, before he joined an acting crew that leaded him to New York.
