British Canadian actor David Fox, who was best known for his role in the BCTV production of “Linda Stark” and had been seen off-Broadway in the theater and on-screen in films and on television, died Thursday at a hospital in Montreal. He was 75.
His family said he died of esophageal cancer and that his death was sudden.
Fox started out in theatre, starring in productions of “Antony and Cleopatra” and “The Horse and His Boy” and elsewhere.
“David lived his life, with flair and vigor, making every day count,” the family said in a statement, and he worked in television, including a role in the CBS show “The Glades.” But he also wrote, produced and directed several plays.
“Mr. Fox often said that he loved to teach, to tell stories, to explore. And always, he gave to others what he was given: love and appreciation.”
Fox was born Dec. 10, 1938, in Toronto, Canada, and he moved to New York with his parents, Gerald and Pearl, in the 1950s to pursue theater studies.
