Veteran character actor Stanley Kamel was found dead in his Hollywood home yesterday, according to Access Hollywood. Kamel is probably best known to soap fans as Tony Marchette, the father of Loving actress Rebecca Gayheart's character Antonia on Beverly Hills, 90210.
Kamel and Gayheart's storyline on the primetime soap infamously ushered Luke Perry off the canvas as his new wife Antonia was accidently killed in a hit meant for Perry's character Dylan McKay arranged by her father. Kamel also appeared on Days of Our Lives in the mid-70's as Eric Peters. He also played father to Kelly Monaco's character Sam McCall on General Hospital. Most recently Kamel appeared on the series Monk as Dr. Charles Kroger.
He was 65.
