David Ogden Stiers


Born - 31 October 1942, Peoria, Illinois, USA
Died - 3 March 2018

Very tall, solidly built, plum-nosed, balding and latterly bearded American character actor, a prolific player largely seen in comedy and best remembered as the hapless, pompous Major Winchester in more than 100 episodes of the TV series M*A*S*H. TV work dominated the body of his career, with the occasional film appearance on the way: Drive, He Said (1971), Oh, God! (1977), The Cheap Detective (1978), Harry's War (1981), Creator (1985), The Accidental Tourist (1988), Shadows and Fog (1991), Taking Liberty (1993), Bad Company (1995), Mighty Aphrodite (1995), Jungle 2 Jungle (1997), The Stand-In (1999), Tomcats (2001), The Majestic (2001), Not Dead Yet (2009) and Ned Stryker and the Tyrant of Time (2017), his last. He was also in demand in later times for voices in Disney cartoon features, notably Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast (1991). He died from bladder cancer.
