Upon graduation from New York’s American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Lupton secured immediate stage work. Then he was signed as a contract player at MGM in Hollywood. Lupton was lanky and handsome like James Stewart or Henry Fonda, but never achieved similar fame.
In the 1954-1955 television season, Lupton appeared in several episodes as a college student in the CBS sitcom, The Halls of Ivy. In 1957, he was cast in the ABC western series, Broken Arrow, which ran for two seasons.
Lupton also co-starred in 1956 with Fess Parker in The Great Locomotive Chase. He guest starred on several television series, including ABC’s 1961-1962 crime drama with Stephen McNally.
