David Ogden Stiers


by Katie Kilkenny (Hollywood Reporter)

Stiers also voiced Cogsworth in Disney's 1991 'Beauty and the Beast.'
David Ogden Stiers, the actor who famously played Major Charles Emerson Winchester III in M*A*S*H has died, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed on Saturday. He was 75 years old.

"My dear friend and client of 30 years is gone," representative Mitchell Stubbs of Mitchell K. Stubbs & Associates said in a statement to THR on Saturday. "David had wisdom and talent in so many different areas. I wish people could know the beautiful heart that he had. His friends and family knew, as he told us so."

Stiers died at his home in Newport, Oregon, and had been battling bladder cancer, The Oregonian reported on Saturday.

In his most famous role as Major Charles Emerson Winchester III on CBS's smash-hit sitcom M*A*S*H, filling in for actor Larry Linville after he left the show, Stiers played a blue-blooded surgeon and straightman to the cast's practical jokers. In real life, however, Stiers gave back as good as he got to his cast members. "To repay Stiers for all his pranks on us, we had his dressing room painted orange and purple over Thanksgiving break. When we came back, we were waiting for him to rant. He said nothing. Finally, one of us asked, 'What's new?'" co-star Jamie Farr remembered in THR's oral history of M*A*S*H in February.

Stiers was nominated for two primetime Emmys for his role as Winchester, in 1981 and 1982; he later won a primetime Emmy for his role as U.S. Olympic Committee founder William Milligan Sloane in the NBC miniseries The First Olympics: Athens 1896 in 1984.

He was brilliant as Major Winchester and quite the music lover as well. He'll be sorely missed.

Godspeed, Mr. Stiers!
