Emmy and Tony winner Ken Howard, the tall, barrel-chested actor known for starring in CBS’ late ’70s sports drama “The White Shadow,” NBC drama “Crossing Jordan” and, more recently, for his appearances on “30 Rock” as well as for his presidency of SAG-aftra, died Wednesday. He was 71.

SAG-aftra announced that he died at his home near Los Angeles. A cause of death has not yet been revealed.

“Ken was a remarkable leader and his powerful vision for this union was a source of inspiration for all of us,” SAG-aftra acting president Gabrielle Carteris said in a statement. “Ken was an inspirational leader and it is an incredible loss for SAG-aftra, for his family and for everyone who knew him. He was a light that never dimmed and was completely devoted to the membership. He led us through tumultuous times and set our union on a steady course of excellence. We will be forever in his debt. »

“Ken was a remarkable leader and his powerful vision for this union was a source of inspiration for all of us,” SAG-aftra acting president Gabrielle Carteris said in a statement “He was an exceptional person and we are deeply saddened by his passing. He had a remarkable career and he never forgot what it was like to be a working performer. The merger of SAG and AFTRA was something of a ‘North Star’ for him and, once he fixed upon it, he never wavered from that goal. »
