First John Forsythe now him. Wonder who will be next from the cast of Dynasty to hit the can.
See inside for more details.
British actor Robin Sachs, best known for his role in the hit TV series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, has died at the age of 61.
His villainous character Ethan Rayne was the arch enemy of regular character Giles, played by Anthony Head.
The London-born actor also played the evil General Sarris opposite Tim Allen in Galaxy Quest.
His ex-wife Casey Defranco called him "a wonderful person, extraordinarily talented as an actor."
Staff on his official website wrote: "Please join us in raising a glass to Robin - goodbye, dear friend. Thank you for all the laughter and the cookies. We will miss you so very much."
Sachs' first role was with the British Hammer film studio, in the movie Vampire Circus.
He went on to play Adam Carrington in the 1991 miniseries Dynasty: The Reunion when the original actor Gordon Thomson was unavailable.
Scene from Galaxy Quest Sachs was closely associated with science fiction
Sachs worked on several sci-fi shows, with appearances in Babylon 5, Star Trek: Voyager and Torchwood: Miracle Day.
His stage work included touring productions of Hamlet and Twelfth Night.
In 1999, he appeared heavily disguised under layers of heavy make-up as the baddie Sarris in the satirical comedy Galaxy Quest, which co-starred Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman.
Later in his career, Sachs provided voices for several video games including Mass Effect 2 and 3 and Resident Evil Damnation.
Thanks for that pic, R31, but I think it's a sweet picture, not sad. His hair's a mess and he has those huge glasses but you can still see the handsome guy he was. And his spirits look good.
The episode when Tony is riding the horse shirtless and Fallon tells him to put his shirt on is great.
Paul Keenan and John Wesley Shipp did the film "Summer Fantasies" together.
I read Keenan was on Days of our Lives as Todd Chandler, Liz's brother did he also date Marlena (Diedre Hall)?
I remember that, r35. What gay guy who grew up in that area could resist a film Keenan, Shipp, as well as Ted Shackelford naked the entire time. That movie and Jon Erik Hexum's Making of a Male Model were huge JO material for me.
OP epic fail.
Title should be: Ethan Raynes from Buffy DEAD!
Please tell me Karen Cellini is OK.
WEHT Karen Cellini? That'd be an interesting thread. Quite a rise and fall. Wasn't she selling T-shirts at a Planet Hollywood when Aaron Spelling hired her for Dynasty. Then in about six months she went from playing a Carrington on freakin' Dynasty to...what? The souvenir counter at Planet Hollywood? A rise and fall would have to fuck up your life forever.
OMG this is like saying LEAD SINGER OF THE SUPREMES DEAD!!!!!!!! and finding out it's Scherrie Payne.
You can "hit the road" or "hit the showers." You can "can it," "kick the can" even "kick the bucket."
But you can't "hit the can" in this context, OP.
"Hit the can" means to use the toilet.
