‘9 To 5’ Actor Dabney Coleman Passes Away At The Age Of 92

Dabney Coleman who appeared in 'Buffalo Bill', 'Stuart Little', 'Maybe Baby' and many others died at his home on May 16, Thursday,

Dabney Coleman, an actor who is popular for the hilarious character he played in ‘9 to 5’ died on Thursday, May 16. His daughter confirmed his death with the media as he took his last breath at his home in Santa Monica, Calif. But his daughter did not cite any cause of the 92-year-old actor. 

She told Hollywood Reporter, “My father crafted his time here on Earth with a curious mind, a generous heart and a soul on fire with passion, desire and humor that tickled the funny bone of humanity, as he lived, he moved through this final act of his life with elegance, excellence and mastery.”

Dabney had a vast career in acting. He showed his acting adeptness through many television series and movies based on the genre of drama or comedy. But he was a little right in playing his comic role, may it be Franklin Hart Jr a despicable boss in 9 to 5 or host of talk show Bill Bittinger in ‘Buffalo Bill’. John J. O’Connor outlined this Emmy winner as “the kind of gifted actor who always seems to be teetering on the verge of becoming a star.”

Dabney worked in many ventures, like The ‘Slap’ Maxwell Story, Seinfeld and others. All those failed, although he received appreciation for his acting. Even Buffalo Bill also went off-air after a few episodes. Explaining the reason, the Stuart Little actor once told The Times, “Writers write wrong for me sometimes. They’re trying to be funny, usually. Trying to make a joke. And that’s not what I do, you know. It’s not jokes; it’s not words. It’s acting. It’s acting funny.” He died but left his mark through his subtle acting skills.
