Dynasty Patriarch John Forsythe Dies at 92
Friday April 02, 2010 03:35 PM EDT
Dynasty star John Forsythe, who played patriarch Blake Carrington on the primetime soap and was the voice of Charlie in both the TV and film versions of Charlie’s Angels, died on Thursday.

In a statement Friday, Reuters reported, “The family of John Forsythe sadly announces his passing on April 1, 2010. He was 92 years old and, thankfully, he died as he lived his life … with dignity and grace, after a years-long struggle with cancer.”

Forsythe, who also played Bentley Gregg, the swinging single saddled with an orphaned niece on the 1957-62 sitcom Bachelor Father, received three Emmy nominations for Dynasty, which ran from 1981-89. After making his film debut in 1943, he also appeared in the Alfred Hitchcock movies The Trouble with Harry (1955) and Topaz (1969), as well as 1988’s Bill Murray comedy Scrooged, among many others.

He will be remembered for his distinguished voice and courtly presence on screen. Off screen, it was his modesty that separated him from the rest of the crowd.

In 1979, Forsythe told PEOPLE, “I’m not a soaring talent. I am a good journeyman actor, but nowhere near the league of Brando or Scott. Those people are touched by the hand of God.”
