Some sad news arrived today… actor Robert Vaughn has passed away at the age of 83 after a brief battle with acute leukemia. He may have been best known as “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” but Vaughn dipped his toes in the horror genre on more than a few occasions.
Among his horror credits you’ll find TV shows “Thriller” and “Deadly Nightmares” as well as films like C.H.U.D. II – Bud the Chud, Doctor Franken, Buried Alive, and A Cry from Within.
Per Deadline, Vaughn’s manager, Matthew Sullivan, confirmed the news. “Mr. Vaughn passed away with his family around him,” Sullivan said. The actor is survived by wife, Linda; son, Cassidy; and daughter, Caitlin.
We here at Dread Central send Robert’s family members and friends our condolences. Rest in peace, and thanks for the memories!
