Actor Fritz Weaver has died at the age of 90.
Weaver’s daughter, Lydia Weaver, and son-in-law, Bruce Ostler, told the Associated Press that he died at his New York City home Saturday night. No cause of death was provided.
Weaver won a Tony in 1970 for his part in the drama, “Child’s Play.”
In a more than 60-year career, Weaver played bit parts in various TV series including “The Fugitive,” ”Gunsmoke,” ”Magnum, P.I.” and “Law & Order.” He was nominated for an Emmy for his starring turn as the patriarch of a Jewish family in the 1978 NBC mini-series “Holocaust.”
Despite his television success, Weaver told the AP in 1986 that the theater was his “home.” He called the stage “the most demanding on all your resources — physical and mental.”
