Billy Redden (born 1956 in Rabun County, Georgia) is an American actor best known for his role as Lonnie, the banjo-playing boy, in the 1972 film Deliverance. Redden, then 15, earned his role in Deliverance during a casting call at Clayton Elementary School in Clayton, Georgia. Redden plays "Dueling Banjos" opposite actor Ronny Cox on guitar. Redden could not actually play the banjo. A local musician, Mike Addis, reached from behind Redden; this was disguised using careful camera angles.
Most people dont know that I was the first choice for the banjo boy in the 1972 movie Deliverance, they then gave to part to Billy Redden because I didnt look "inbred enough" for the role... They offered me another part in the film but I don't squeal like a pig for no man...
