Hollywood Loses Another Legend – John Forsythe – 1918-2010
The entertainment community has lost a true gentleman, and it is with unbelievable sadness that I post this announcement of John Forsythe’s death. John was an amazing man with tremendous humor, incredible understanding, and a gift for acting that through roles in Charlie’s Angels and as ‘Blake Carrington’ in Dynasty, will go down in the pages of Hollywood history as being nearly unparalleled.
John Forsythe passed away at his home last night at 92. He’d been battling cancer for the past several years, but had been in remission until it unfortunately returned last year. He had also been battling pneumonia, which is what finally ended his life.
On behalf of everyone at The Hollywood Show, our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Nicole, daughters Page and Brooke, his countless friends and co-workers.
On a personal note, I had the great privilege of having several conversations with John while working on assorted projects over the past decade, and this post, although I knew it would be one that would eventually be done, is without a doubt one that I wish we could have not needed for a few more years. Rest in peace, dear friend. You will be incredibly missed… JM
