Actor Eddie Jones, best known to Superman fans as Jonathan Kent on the TV series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” has passed away, aged 82.
Interact Theatre Company released the following statement via their Facebook page:
Our treasured longtime member, dear friend and trusted colleague, Eddie Jones, passed away today.
Eddie was a true pillar of our company from its earliest days. An actor of keen wit and sharp instinct, when Eddie was on stage, you couldn’t take your eyes off him. When he was off-stage, his broad, bright smile would light up the room. Everyone who knew Eddie as a friend, or had the good fortune to share the stage with him, was touched by his gentle and generous nature. He will be deeply missed by all. ITC extends its deepest condolences to his dear, devoted wife Anita Khanzadian Jones, and extended family.
May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest, Eddie.
Dean Cain, who played the role of Clark Kent/Superman, took to Twitter to post his own reaction upon learning the sad news…
“My heart breaks with this loss,” Cain wrote. “God Bless you, Eddie. You were a wonderful human, and terrific father. RIP my friend.”
Our condolences to his family and friends.
