Sid Haig was brought up in an Armenian community by his parents – Sid later adopted his father’s Christian name. As a child he was very interested in dancing, and by the age of seven he was already a paid dancer in a Christmas show for children, after which he became a member of a vaudeville revival show. Later, he began playing the drums, and in his teens, Sid signed a one-year contract, releasing a single entitled “Full House” via the T-Birds in 1958, which reached No. 4 on the charts. However, while in high school, Sid was spotted by the head of the drama department Alice Merrill, who encouraged him to pursue a career as an actor. He enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse, and was tutored by such successful actors as Gene Hackman, Robert Preston, Dustin Hoffman; after the course was over he moved to Hollywood.
