    R.I.P. Fred Ward. A great actor, and what an incredible range of directors he managed to work with: Roberto Rossellini, Walter Hill, Jonathan Demme, Don Siegel, Beth B, Philip Kaufman, Dennis Hopper, George Armitage, Rachel Talalay, Errol Morris, Robert Altman, Alan Rudolph, Michael Apted, Howard Zieff … and Alain Robbe-Grillet ! … and I haven’t even made it yet to the delightful SECRET ADMIRER.

    Fred Ward wiki

    Freddie Joe Ward was born in San Diego on December 30, 1942.[1][2] He was part Cherokee.[3] His father was an alcoholic who was frequently incarcerated, and his parents separated when he was three. His mother remarried, to a man who worked in a carnival, and the family moved frequently.[4]> Before acting, Ward spent three years in the United States Air Force. He was also a boxer (breaking his nose three times) and worked as a lumberjack in Alaska,[5][6] a janitor, and a short-order cook. He studied acting at New York’s Herbert Berghof Studio after serving in the U.S. Air Force. While living in Rome, he dubbed Italian films into English and appeared in films by neorealist director Roberto Rossellini
