His classical, Shakespearean training brought a certain gravitas to the world of American TV soap operas. British-born actor and favorite TV daytime serial villain Charles Keating has lost his battle with cancer. He was 72.
Soap opera actor Charles Keating is survived by his wife of over 50 years, his two sons and six grandchildren.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Winning a Daytime Emmy for his role as Carl Hutchins in "Another World," Keating's other credits include "The Thomas Crown Affair," "The Bodyguard" and "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo." He was also nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actor in 1986 for a revival of "Joe Orton's Loot."
He also guest-starred on "Sex and The City" as well as the ABC sitcom "Going to Extremes."
Keating began his career on stage with the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-Upon-Avon in England. His major breakthrough came in TV roles, such as those on "Life and Death of Penelope," "Crown Court" and "Brideshead Revisited."
With his trademark long silver hair that he often wore in a ponytail, Keating was on "Another World" from 1983 to 1986.
His former "Another World" co-star Alicia Coppola shared the news on her Twitter account, writing: "Charles Keating has passed. I am so very sad. Along w/ @LindaDano he was my very first acting teacher. The actress I am is because of them."
Another "Another World" star sent off Keating with a Shakespearean quote: "He was a man, take him for all in all, I shall not look upon his like again."
Born in London, England in 1941, Keating was best known for a character whose malevolence would have made him feel right at home in a Shakespearean tragedy. His role on "Another World" Hutchins, cast him as a seductive manipulator who lacked a conscience. It was in the role as Hutchins that Keating swindled, poisoned, bombed, kidnapped and arranged for the maiming of his fellow characters.
With his trademark long silver hair that he often wore in a ponytail, Keating was on "Another World" from 1983 to 1986. He would always return whenever his character - presumed dead at various times from a fall off a cliff, a helicopter crash, a hospital fire, gunshot wounds and drowning - as needed. Keating was fired from the show in 1998 but agreed to come back for its 1999 finale.
Keating was nominated for four Daytime Emmys, and received the award for outstanding lead actor in a drama series in 1996. He also received three "outstanding villain" nominations from Soap Opera Digest.
Keating is survived by his wife of over 50 years, his two sons and six grandchildren.
