Don Harron, Canadian Writer and Actor, Dies at 90

18 January 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don Harron, a Canadian actor and writer who brought laughter to Canadian and American audiences alike with his alter ego Charlie Farquharson, died Saturday. He was 90.

According to the Associated Press, his daughter Martha said Harron died in his Toronto home surrounded by his family. He had chosen not to undergo treatment for cancer.

Martha said he didn’t lose the wit he was known for at the end of his life.

“He was still sharp. He was still capable of being funny even though his voice was barely above a whisper,” she told the AP. “It’s horribly sad, but it’s beautiful too.”

Harron first introduced Farquharson, a country bumpkin who took any chance to make fun of all things Canadian, on a CBC television revue in 1952. He would go on to appear as the character on U.S. television variety show “Hee Haw.”

Farquharson was an author »
