wow that’s not terribly old. I think the strength of his acting was you hated him in Superman III but respected how well he played that character. RIP

I remember first seeing him in an episode of the Amazing Spider-Man tv series in the 70’s. Where I think he played a science student at Peter’s university who came up with mist to control minds or something like that. Then of course I saw him in Superman III and later Willow. He was a good character actor and those are very much needed and very much underrated.

Sympathies to his family and friends during this difficult time. RIP

Did he play the knight named Eric in Willow?

Yes! Arik was a knight of Galadorn who refuses to release Madmartigan from his cage when he says to him “Give me a sword and I’ll win this war for you!”

“ Madmartigan. I still serve Galadorn. You serve no one.”
Yeah I thought it was the same actor. Sad to hear of his passing.
