Acclaimed actor, Ron Glass, who has appeared on countless television shows throughout his decades-long career, has passed away. The actor was 71.
While it is not yet clear if he had been ill prior to his death or what the exact cause was, he reportedly passed away peacefully in his residence in LA yesterday (Nov. 25).
The Indiana-born actor got his start in the entertainment business at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, before relocating to Hollywood in hopes to advance his career. Following landing his breakout role on the sitcom Barney Miller, playing Det. Ron Harris, the actor received a Primetime Emmy nomination in 1982 in the category of supporting actor. The sitcom regularly aired from 1975-1982.
Throughout his acting career, Glass held various roles on shows such as Family Matters, Friends, Star Trek, CSI and Firefly. He also lent his voice for Nickelodeon's animated series Rugrats, as well as on All Grown Up!
In addition to his lengthy career in acting, Glass also was a member of the Soka Gakkai International, a lay Buddhist organization.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family during this difficult time.
