Bernard Fox, the character actor best known for his role as Dr. Bombay on the sitcom “Bewitched,” died of heart failure on Wednesday at Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Van Nuys, Calif. He was 89.
Fox was born Bernard Lawson in Port Talbot, Wales, in 1927 to stage actors Queenie and Gerald Lawson.
He began his film career at a mere 18 months old, and worked as an assistant manager of a theater by 14. He served in the Royal Navy during World War II and resumed his acting career afterward, eventually landing 30 film credits from 1956 to 2004. In that time period, Fox was featured in two films revolving around the sinking of the Titanic — the 1958 movie “A Night to Remember” and James Cameron’s 1997 version, “Titanic.” His other film roles include the voice of the Chairmouse in the Disney animated features “The Rescuers” and “The Rescuers Down Under,” as well as his role as Winston Havelock in “The Mummy.”
Aside from portraying Dr. Bombay on the ABC series “Bewitched,” Fox also appeared in several other television shows, playing Colonel Crittendon on another popular sitcom, CBS’ “Hogan’s Heroes,” and Nigel Penny-Smith on the daytime soap opera “General Hospital.”December 18, 2016 at 10:48 pm #1201971923December 23, 2016 at 6:42 pm #1201974334

Carrie Fisher, the actress, writer and daughter of Hollywood royalty who became internationally famous as Princess Leia of “Star Wars,” has died, Variety has confirmed. She was 60.
Fisher died Tuesday morning after suffering what was described as a massive heart attack on Friday while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She had been in London filming episodes of the Amazon/Channel 4 comedy “Catastrophe.” Fisher was rushed from Los Angeles International Airport to UCLA Medical Center after the plane landed around noon PT.
Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, confirmed the death on Tuesday: “It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” the statement reads. “She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly.”
Fisher was the daughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, whose marriage famously broke up when Eddie Fisher had an affair with Elizabeth Taylor. She often remarked that she was born in the spotlight, and her life and career reflected the highs and lows of the entertainment business. Her mother’s career struggles after her 1950s heyday weighed heavily on Fisher.
“I grew up on the back side of show business. So I had no desire to go into it. It had beat up my mother,” Fisher told the New York Times in 2006. “I had a front-and-center view of how that hurt her. I understood that when they were done with you, they were done.”December 28, 2016 at 5:58 pm #1201976568
