At 12 he began performing on Los Angeles children's TV shows, then at 14 he debuted onscreen in De Sica' Stazione Termini/Indiscretion of an American Wife (1953). Beymer continued appearing in films for the next decade, progressing from boy roles to juvenile leads. In 1963 he quit movies and went to New York to study at the Actors Studio. In 1964 he participated in the drive to register black voters in Mississippi; he made a documentary about the event, and his work won a prize at the Mannheim Festival. Beymer later directed a short film, A Very Special Day, followed by the feature The Innerview (1974), which he also produced, wrote, filmed, and edited. He returned to occasional screen acting in the '80s and '90s, and was a regular on the TV series Twin Peaks.
