David Canary


Born - 25 August 1938, Elwood, indiana, USA
Died - 16 November 2015

Narrow-faced, dark-haired, lantern-jawed American character actor, best remembered for his roles in the TV western series Bonanza and the daytime soap All My Children. Seemingly a shoo-in for casting as gangsters, Canary in fact played very few. After military service, he debuted on Broadway in the early 1960s, and entered films a few years later: Hombre (1966), The St Valentine's Day Massacre (1967), The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969), The Legend of Machine Gun Kelly (1974), Posse (1975), Shark's Treasure (1975), In a Pig's Eye (1990) and the title role in Secret Santa (1994), his last, although he continued acting on TV until 2011. He died from Alzheimer's Disease.
