Christopher Cazenove dies

Following in the wake of John Forsythe's death, his "Dynasty" brother, Christopher Cazenove, has now passed away. Cazenove played the dashing Ben Carrington, the younger brother to Blake Carrington who had a serious chip on his shoulder. Though the relationship of the two characters was adversarial upon Ben's arrival in Denver in the 1986-1987 season, his character was softened considerably. The British actor, who was 64, continued working right up to his death.

"I am so saddened by the news of Christopher Cazenove's passing," the actor's "Dynasty" co-star Terri Garber posted on her Facebook status late yesterday. "He played my father on 'Dynasty.' He was a wonderful and kind man. We had a terrific relationship. He will be missed."

The IMDb has more information, including links to Cazenove's obituary in the UK's Guardian and other spots around the 'Net:
