John Forsythe dies of Cancer
4/4/2010 - Christine Traxler

John Forsythe “Dynasty” star dies at the age of 92 on Thursday from pneumonia after battling with colon cancer for long time. He spanned 7 decades on television and films. “Thankfully, he died as he lived his life … with dignity and grace,” the family said in a statement.

His career began in New York City where he was a member of Lee Starsburg’s The Actors Studio.  He was most known for his role as the voice of Charlie in “Charlie’s Angels” and of his role as Blake Carrington in Aaron Spelling’s “Dynasty”. 

“He was a good friend to Aaron and me; despite his matinee-star good looks, he was as humble and down to earth as a person could be,” said Spelling’s wife Candy in a statement.  Forsythe was the son of a Wall Street businessman, studied at the University of North Carolina and served in the US army Air Corps in World War II. 

There will be no public memorial for John Forsythe and the family asked for any donations to be made on his behalf to the Cancer Society of America.
