Just days after Dynasty lead John Forsythe died aged 92, the show loses another star. Actor Christopher Cazenove has died aged 66.
The British actor is best known for his role of Ben Carrington in the 1980s super-soap set around the world of the millionaire Carrington family.
Cazenove died after what has been described as a valiant battle with septicaemia. In a statement his agent released, which speaks on behalf of his family and girlfriend – Isabel Davis, it says the star died peacefully at St Thomas Hospital, London, surrounded by his loved ones on Wednesday.
Lesley Duff, his agent for the past 12 years, says in the release: “All who knew and loved him will be devastated by the loss of this incredible man who touched so many lives.”
John Forsythe, who played head of the family Blake Carrington, died last week after a year-long battle with cancer. Cazenove’s other work includes movie Three Men and A Little Lady and more recently BBC drama, Hotel Babylon.
