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.

He wasn't the real Adam Carrington so this doesn't really matter.

His ex-wife Casey Defranco?????

Our good gay Adam is still alive...bad misleading headline OP.

What's the problem R4?

He played Adam on Dynasty

OP is evil and should be destroyed.

He played Adam for what - a total of 4 broadcast hours? And was miscast in my opinion.

by Anonymousreply 702/07/2013

I did an "Oh no!" and then I clicked on the link and did an "Who the fuck is that???".

He played Adam in the reunion movie because Gordon Thomson was busy taping Santa Barbara.

I hope Geri Reischl is safe. I'd hate to see a topic proclaiming "JAN BRADY IS DEAD!!"

She has nothing to worry about, r10. My sources tell me that Emma Samms is despondent and suicidal over being the only person ever to appear on GH and not be asked back.

by Anonymousreply 1202/07/2013

Fuck off, OP!!!

Gordon Thomson today.

Emma Saams, Jack Coleman and Karen Cellini must be very nervous today.

WEHT Al Corley, the first and best looking Steven?

by Anonymousreply 1602/07/2013

Emma Samms has gone back to GH - once a few years ago where they totally wrecked her character, and then for about 3 episodes about six months ago.

r16, watch your back. I may pay you a visit one of these days.

You suck OP, your title should have led with his character on Buffy since he is best known for that.

You deliberately wanted to mislead people.

Who was the hungest of the Dynasty studs? I was too young to pay attention to bulges back then.

Tony the stableboy had the biggest cock. Paul Keenan, who played Tony, was so hot. He died of AIDS.

Um, doesn't that mean to go potty?

Not like the old days when Thomson was getting tapped on the roof of the Sports Connection in WeHo.

Wow! He was gorgeous, R25!

Here's a sad pic of Paul Keenan in the throes of the disease.

by Anonymousreply 3102/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3202/07/2013

God'll get you for that, OP!

by Anonymousreply 3302/07/2013

Keenan had a maginifent chest.

by Anonymousreply 3402/07/2013

Paul Keenan and John Wesley Shipp did the film "Summer Fantasies" together.

by Anonymousreply 3502/07/2013

I read Keenan was on Days of our Lives as Todd Chandler, Liz's brother did he also date Marlena (Diedre Hall)?

by Anonymousreply 3602/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3702/07/2013

OP epic fail.

Title should be: Ethan Raynes from Buffy DEAD!

by Anonymousreply 3802/07/2013

Please tell me Karen Cellini is OK.

by Anonymousreply 3902/07/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 4102/07/2013

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.
