Born in California, Wood broke into acting in 1943, but very quickly took a hiatus to enlist as a Marine in World War II to avenge the death of his brother Charles, who was also an actor and also a Marine, after Charles was killed in action in the Pacific.[2] After the war, Ward Wood returned to acting in 1947, and was active until the early 1980s.
