Question: The Incredible ...

Question: The Incredible Hulk's Peter Banner was married in the series, and then his wife passed away. What was the actress's real name? Televisionary: It depends on which wife you mean. The first wife of David Banner (Bill Bixby) was played by Lara Parker (Dark Shadows). Already dead when the story began, she was seen only in flashback. His second wife was a psychiatrist played by Mariette Hartley (who won an Emmy for her troubles), but she, too, was doomed. (Why do you think he had that chip on his shoulder?) Both episodes are paired together on a DVD which Universal released in June.
