Ed Nelson, ‘Peyton Place’ Star, Character Actor, Dies at 85

12 August 2014 4:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ed Nelson, a star of the 1960s primetime soap “Peyton Place” and an actor with almost 200 credits, mostly in television, died on Saturday in Greensboro, N.C. He was 85.

Nelson had most recently appeared in the 2003 courtroom thriller “Runaway Jury,” starring Gene Hackman. He had a more significant role as General Sherman in the 1998 Jackie Chan vehicle “Who Am I.”

On “Peyton Place,” he played Dr. Michael Rossi during the entire five-year run of the series — 436 episodes. He returned in 1985 for reunion telepic “Peyton Place: The Next Generation.”

Mia - still the will of the wisp by Richard Mowe

With her wispy, curly hair and laid back attitude, Mia Farrow still looks like a child of the Sixties. Now grounded by her humanitarian works as a Unicef ambassador, she travels to Darfur, Chad and other parts of Africa to draw attention to the desperate plight of people unable to help themselves. She has spent her life in the spotlight, the issue of Hollywood royalty (the writer-director John Farrow and the actress Maureen O’Sullivan) with famous men in her orbit: Frank Sinatra, whom she married at 21 when he was 50, conductor André Previn and Woody Allen. She created a home for her 14 adopted and biological children but managed to combine family with a career that started »

Ruby Dee: A TV Trailblazer Who Was Not Allowed to Dance with George C. Scott

12 June 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ruby Dee scored plenty of film and stage triumphs during her long career in showbiz. The actress who died Wednesday at the age of 91 is equally renowned for her activism on behalf of civil rights and other humanitarian causes.

But Dee also left a proud legacy of accomplishments on the small screen thanks to her roles on such early- to mid-1960s series as “Peyton Place,” “East Side, West Side,” “The Defenders” and “Nurses.” They were mostly guest shots, with the exception of her recurring role on “Peyton Place,” but even granting a prominent guest role to a black actress was still seen as groundbreaking for the time.
