Charles Siebert, actor on the big screen and the big stage alike, died at University of California San Francisco Medical Center May 1 of COVID-related pneumonia.

The 84-year old entertainment veteran played the role of Dr. Stanley Riverside II on CBS drama “Trapper John, M.D.,” and played Helen Keller’s father in the 1979 NBC telefilm, “The Miracle Worker,” the Hollywood Reporter reported Tuesday.

He was also known for his prominent roles on “As The World Turns” and “Another World,” as well as guest starring on “N.Y.P.D.,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Murder, She Wrote,” and the classic, “All In The Family.”

Siebert’s contributions to the world of entertainment are as plentiful as they are diverse. He appeared on the big screen in films such as “Eight Men Out,” “Coma,” and “The Other Side of Midnight,” just to name a few.

His talent ran deep, and he dove in as a director at Fox Television in 1982, which opened opportunities for him to lend his talents to shows such as “Knots Landing,” “The Legendary Journeys,” and “Xena: Warrior Princess,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Siebert’s most notable appearances on Broadway include “Jimmy Shine,” opposite Dustin Hoffman, and Neil Simon‘s “The Gingerbread Lady.”(RELATED: Basketball Star Justin Hardy Dead At Age 22)
