RIP Chad Everett
The actor died in his Los Angeles home Tuesday after a year-and-a-half-long battle with lung cancer, Everett's daughter, Katherine Thorp told the Associated Press.
Everett, who was born Raymon Lee Crampton, rose to fame playing Dr. Joe Cannon on Medical Center, a role which earned him two Golden Globe nods and an Emmy nomination.
He has since appeared alongside Naomi Watts in "Mulholland Drive" and on "Supernatural", portraying an older version of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles). He most recently appeared on Castle.
Everett is survived by two daughters and six grandchildren. He was married to actress Shelby Grant, who also appeared on Medical Center, for 45 years until her passing last year.
