» "Danger Man" finally safe/Mr. Roarke leaves "Fantasy Island"
Mood: sad
Star of "Danger Man" (better know as "Secret Agent" in the US), Patrick McGoohan has died at age 80. He had a long and varied career including creating and staring in "The Prisoner" about a former spy who is held prisoner in a mysterious colony. The show was spoofed on "The Simpsons" with McGoohan providing the voice of his character. He was one of my favorites. I'll miss him.

Just as I finished typing this, I saw a report that Ricardo Montalban has also died, but there aren't any details as yet. He was 88. He also had a long and varied career. What a great loss to the entertainment business.

I was very sorry to hear about both of these actors leaving us, especially Patrick McGoohan who I always liked in The Prisoner and the various films he made over the years. He was also very good in Columbo, creating some excellent villains in this series.

May both of them rest in peace. They will be sadly missed.
