Early life and career
Kinsolving was born on August 30, 1938, in Boston, Massachusetts, where his father, Rev. Arthur Lee Kinsolving, was serving as the rector of Trinity Church at the time. Father Kinsolving later became the rector of St. James' Episcopal Church, which brought the family to New York City. Kinsolving began his acting career on Broadway.
Kinsolving's acting credits include performances on nearly two dozen prominent television series during the 1950s and 1960s.

That same year Kinsolving played Jammie Murdock in an episode of Have Gun Will Travel titled "The Sons of Aaron Murdock." Later, in 1964, on The Twilight Zone episode "Black Leather Jackets," he was cast as Scott, an alien who falls in love with a human being, Ellen Tillman, portrayed by Shelley Fabares. In 1964 Kinsolving also guest starred on Gunsmoke as identical twin brothers, one good and one evil, in an episode titled "The Other Half."
