TV, film actor Chad Everett dies after cancer battle…
We seem to be having a lot of celebrity deaths this week and this one caught me by surprise.
Chad Everett, the blue-eyed star of the 1970s TV series “Medical Center” who went on to appear in such films and TV shows as “Mulholland Drive” and “Melrose Place,” has died after a year and a half battle with lung cancer. He was 75.
Everett played sensitive doctor Joe Gannon for seven years on “Medical Center,” a role that earned him two Golden Globes and an Emmy nomination. With a career spanning more than 40 years, Everett guest starred on such TV series as “The Love Boat,” “Murder, She Wrote” and “Without a Trace.” Everett most recently appeared in the TV series “Castle.”
Everett was born in South Bend, Ind., and graduated from Wayne State University before moving to Los Angeles and becoming a contract player with MGM.
