And yet another MSTed actor has passed. Ricardo Montalban, who was best known as Mr. Roarke on “Fantasy Island” and Khan Noonian Singh in “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” (and the “Star Trek” episode “Space Seed”) died Jan. 14th in Los Angeles due to complications associated with old age. He was 88. MSTies will remember him as the uncredited dubbed voice of King Claudius in episode 1009- HAMLET. Coincidentally enough, he died on the same date–96 years later–that Hans Caninenberg, who portrayed Claudius in the movie, was born.
The L.A. Times has posted an extensive obituary.
