Marco Antonio Lopez (born September 10, 1935), also credited as Marco Antonio, Antonio Lopez, and Marco Lopez, is an American actor who was known for his roles in Jack Webb-produced television series, such as Adam-12, where he played the recurring character of Officer Sanchez, and Dragnet, where he was credited as Marco Antonio, and sometimes stood in for Webb on long shots. His first Hollywood job was as a stand-in for Elvis Presley in the 1956 movie Love Me Tender.[citation needed]

Lopez was born in Los Angeles of Mexican descent. In 1972, Lopez was offered a role that would bring him into the homes of millions of Americans weekly, the role of Firefighter Marco Lopez in the Jack Webb produced television series Emergency!. Like his fellow Emergency! co-star Mike Stoker, Lopez used his real name as his character name, which led to confusion that he was an actual firefighter with the Los Angeles County Fire Department, this was later cleared up by Lopez himself, he had never worked with the LACoFD at any time.[citation needed]

He would later get roles in such television shows as MacGyver, Mission: Impossible, Adam-12, Murder, She Wrote, and The Six Million Dollar Man, he also starred opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Julia Roberts, in the movie America's Sweethearts, where he had an uncredited role as a photographer. Lopez was also one of the original "extra" crewman on Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, a show he lent his visage (though seldom his voice) to from 1964 to 1968.
