With the passing of Dean Stockwell, the world has lost one of its hardest-working actors. Stockwell passed away of natural causes on the 7th of November 2021.
With a career that ran from 1945–2015, with roles in the original Dune movie, the Beverley Hills Cop franchise but for me, I will always know him for playing the best wingman ever Rear Admiral Albert “Al” Calavicci in Quantum Leap (1989–1993) and the dastardly Brother Cavil in the SyFy Channel revival of Battlestar Galactica (2004–2009).
Though he is mostly known for his acting he was also an avowed environmentalist, so much so that he ended up being briefly involved in politics.
He was a much-loved talent and he will be missed.
