Joanne Linville, of ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Twilight Zone’ fame, dead at 93

Joanne Linville, a prolific actress best known for playing a Romulan commander in an episode of “Star Trek,” died Sunday. She was 93.

Her passing was confirmed by Variety.

Linville, a California native, appeared in dozens of popular television shows in her decades-long career, including “The Twilight Zone,” “Columbo,” “Kojak,” “Dynasty,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “L.A. Law,” “Gunsmoke,” “The Streets of San Francisco,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Route 66,” “Barnaby Jones” and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.” She also worked in films including the 1976 version of “A Star Is Born,” starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, and the 1973 spy movie “Scorpio” with Burt Lancaster.

But she is often remembered for playing a powerful Romulan commander in the Sept. 27, 1968, “Star Trek” episode “The Enterprise Incident,” in which her character faces off with Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and romances with usually unfeeling Vulcan officer Spock (Leonard Nimoy).

Television and film producer Mark A. Altman (“Pandora,” “The Librarians”), who worked on the 2016 documentary “50 Years of ‘Star Trek,'” saluted her portrayal on social media, calling it “perhaps the best thing about #StarTrek’s third season.”

She is also remembered for playing a Southern Civil War widow in a 1961 episode of Rod Serling’s classic sci-fi series “The Twilight Zone.”

One of her more recent parts was portraying legendary gossip columnist Hedda Hopper in the 2001 TV movie “James Dean,” starring James Franco in the lead role and directed by her ex-husband, Mark Rydell.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she and acclaimed teacher Stella Adler started an acting conservatory under Adler’s name in the 1980s.

Linville is survived by her ex-husband, Oscar-nominated director Mark Rydell (“On Golden Pond”), and their children, Christopher and Amy, as well as several grandchildren and a great-grandchild.

Stuart Damon Dies: ‘General Hospital’s’ Alan Quartermaine Had 50-Year Career On Stage And Screen

Actor Stuart Damon, who for decades played General Hospital‘s Chief of Staff Dr. Alan Quartermaine, has died at age 84. News of his passing was first reported by ABC7 Eyewitness News Entertainment reporter George Pennacchio and confirmed in a tweet from General Hospital EP Frank Valentini, who sent his condolences to Damon’s family before writing, “Stuart was an absolute legend of our industry and he’ll be sorely missed.”

On behalf of everyone at #GH, I want to extend my deepest condolences to Stuart Damon’s family and all who loved him. Stuart was an absolute legend of our industry and he’ll be sorely missed. @GeneralHospital

— Frank Valentini (@valentinifrank) June 29, 2021

The actor’s son, Christopher, told Pennacchio that the actor had been dealing with renal failure for the past few years. Of his father’s 5-decade run on General Hospital Christopher said, “It was his favorite place to be. He loved playing Alan and was always so appreciative of that role and that job. It was his passion.”

Damon first appeared on the soap as Alan Quartermaine in 1977. He remained in the role even after the good doctor’s death in 2007, appearing occasionally as the character’s ghost.

The actor also appeared as Quartermaine on the spinoff Port Charles, which aired from 1997-2003.

After his stint as a regular on General Hospital was over, Damon landed multi-episode arcs on Days of Our Lives and As the World Turns. He also appeared on such pre-2000 hits as Diagnosis Murder, Fantasy Island, Mike Hammer and Hotel.

Damon got his start on Broadway, which led to him play the prince opposite Lesley Ann Warren in a 1965 TV movie remake of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

In the late ’60s, he appeared on 30 episodes of NBC’s The Champions.

Stuart Damon Dies: 'Brokenhearted' General Hospital Alum Amber Tamblyn Pays Tribute to 'Adopted Dad'

General Hospital alum Amber Tamblyn is paying tribute to her former TV father Stuart Damon, whose death at the age of 84 was announced on Tuesday.

“Brokenhearted to hear of the passing of Stuart Damon,” Tamblyn, who played Emily to Damon’s Alan Quartermaine on GH, wrote on Twitter. “He played my adopted dad on General Hospital for seven years and he was the most kind, wonderful, loving, supportive person. He always made me laugh and made me feel safe on set. I love you, Stewy. Rest well now, my friend.”

GH exec producer Frank Valentini also took to Twitter to honor the soap legend, writing, “On behalf of everyone at GH, I want to extend my deepest condolences to Stuart Damon’s family and all who loved him. Stuart was an absolute legend of our industry and he’ll be sorely missed.”

Damon made his General Hospital debut in 1977, and remained in the role as a series regular until his character’s death in 2007. Damon continued to appear sporadically as Alan’s ghost until December 23, 2008. He returned for a dream sequence in 2011 before making what would be his final appearance in 2013 (to commemorate GH’s 50th anniversary).

---------

I knew him a little bit. A very nice man.
