This saddens me greatly.
Richard Treat Williams, the star of Everwood and Hair, has died after being involved in a motorcycle accident. He was 71.
The actor’s death was confirmed on Monday evening by his agent of 15 years, Barry McPherson.
The actor’s longstanding career dates back to 1975, when he made his film debut in the thriller Deadly Hero. From there, he began to take on more film roles, including 1976’s The Ritz and The Eagle Has Landed.
In 1979, Williams’ career reached a high point when he starred as George Berger in the film Hair, which was based on the Broadway musical. The role ultimately earned him his first Golden Globe nomination for new star of the year – actor. He later earned another Golden Globe nom for best actor in a motion picture drama for his role in 1981’s Prince of the City.
In 2002, he began portraying the leading role of Dr. Andrew “Andy” Brown on The WB’s Everwood. He starred on the series for all four seasons, and even earned himself a SAG Award nomination for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series in 2003-04.
I’m so saddened by this.
