Actor David Ogden Stiers, here pictured attending a special screening and panel discussion of "Beauty and the Beast" in 2016, has died, aged 75.

He died "peacefully at his home in Newport, Oregon after a courageous battle with bladder cancer", the MKS Talent Agency tweeted.

"Without it I don't think I would even be an actor". As the frequent foe of the freewheeling characters played by Alan Alda and Mike Farrell, Winchester took over for Frank Burns, who had been played by Larry Linville. Winchester was a much more complex, rich foil for Hawkeye and Hunnicutt.
