Richard Herd

Actor

Born - 26 September 1932, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Died - 26 May 2020

Balding, stockily-built, phlegmatic-looking American character actor with a passing resemblance to Karl Malden. Herd, though, never attained Malden's stature, spending a decade and a half in the theatre before becoming a familiar film face in his late thirties: Liberty for Youth (1969), Hercules in New York (1970), Pueblo (1973), All the President's Men (1976), F.I.S.T. (1978), The China Syndrome (1979), Private Benjamin (1980), Deal of the Century (1983), Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987), Gleaming the Cube (1989), The Judas Project (1990), Skeeter (1993), Sgt Bilko (1996), The Survivor 1998), A Fare to Remember (1999), The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (2005), Dog Days of Summer (2007), A Christmas in New York (2015), Get Out (2017), The Mule (2018), The Silent Natural (2019), his last, and many more. He and his third wife Patricia, who survives him, had just celebrated their ruby wedding a few weeks before his death from cancer.
