Robert Vaughn the actor who brought the dashing and debonair Napoleon Solo to life died today.

He had a part in the "Magnificent Seven" as a gambler and played a psychologist in the "Mind of Mr. Soames"

There were numerous guest appearances during the 90s and a reoccurring role on the A-Team tv series.

He will be missed.

ANONYMOUSE


I liked his appearance in Battle Beyond The Stars:

Shad: I'm on a mission for the people of Akir, I'm hiring mercenaries to protect against an invasion. But food and shelter is all I can offer in payment; all of our wealth is in our culture.
Gelt: I could buy your planet ten times over with what I've gathered in this room. Plutonium...cadmium...Qualine crystals...I've been very well paid for my work.
Shad: I see. I'm sorry to have trespassed on your time. (he turns to leave)
Gelt: No...wait. Listen to the rest: I sleep with my back to the wall...when I can sleep. I eat serpents seven times a week. There's not a major city in this galaxy where I can show my face, or spend my wealth. Right now your offer looks very attractive to me. (He rises from his seat/throne) A meal, and a place to hide.

Which he got; at his funeral:

Shad: Have someone prepare a meal.
Medic: A meal?
Shad: Full course. Then bury it with him.
Medic: Bury it?
Shad: That was our arrangement...a meal and a place to hide.

Think I saw "Battle Beyond the Stars" but don't remember much of it.

"The Mind of Mr. Soames" was sort of a science fiction thing.

Napoleon never wanted to hide. All he wanted was a glass of fine wine, a beautiful woman on his arm and Illya to have his back.

Yes, RIP Napoleon.

I heard the news the other day and was kind of surprised. One of my favorite TV characters growing up. He will be missed.

I found out on a fanfiction site that I like to read and was surprised. These older actors can fade away and we their fans don't realize anything is wrong until they die.

As I've said I think before of Napoleon and Illya. Illya was my favourite. I will be more saddened when David McCallum goes. I used to watch the "Invisible Man" as a child and was fascinated that he could peel off his mask and such and not be there.
