Unfortunately for Nader there were many well established actors on payroll with Universal. He was reduced to being cast in supporting or cameo roles. Never one to be disheartened, George Nader did his best and made a mark on the public. He was the only actor of that time who came on screen with his chest hair intact and was loved by the public.
In his personal life he was a committed homosexual who never faked a relation with any woman to keep the tabloids off his back. The homosexual scene back then was pretty strict with ostracizing at the very best.
Nader fell to the venom of a tabloid called ‘Confidential’ and was forced to quit his career in Hollywood and move to Europe. There he acted in a series of movies and TV shows. After a car accident, Nader was unfortunately unable to work in front of bright lights.
He retired from the acting scene and came back to the States with his partner Mark Miller. There he wrote a bestseller ‘Chrome’ in 1978 which went in for another 6 publications. Nader was hospitalized in September 2001 in a nursing home where he passed away peacefully in February 2002.
