  • M*A*S*H Actor David Ogden Stiers Dead At 75

Actor David Ogden Stiers, best remembered for his Emmy-nominated role as Major Charles Emerson Winchester III in the classic TV series M*A*S*H, died Saturday at the age of 75.

Emmy Award-winning actor David Ogden Stiers has died at his OR home, following a battle with bladder cancer.

"His talent was only surpassed by his heart", he wrote to his 438 followers. This came from how the Winchester character was written, but also largely from Stiers' performance as the upper-crust, well-spoken, erudite Bostonian, a performance that earned him two Emmy nominations.

David got his start in acting in 1971 with a role in George Lucas' sci-fi thriller film THX 1138.
