Actor Don S. Davis dies in B.C.

VANCOUVER - Don Sinclair Davis, a B.C. actor best known for his recurring role on the TV show Stargate SG-1, died of a heart attack Sunday morning at his home in Gibsons, B.C. He was 65.

"He had a massive heart attack," said Gail Wilson, a friend who lives just down the street from Davis. "The ambulances came (and) I know they tried to resuscitate him in the driveway and couldn't."

Davis leaves behind his wife Ruby Fleming-Davis, who he married in 2003, and a son from a previous marriage.

Davis, who had a PhD in theatre, was born and raised in Missouri and began acting in the early 1980s while teaching at the University of British Columbia. In 1987, he gave up teaching to act full time.

Davis served three years in the army in the 1960s and two of his best-known TV roles were playing military men: General George Hammond in Stargate SG-1 and Major Garland Briggs in Twin Peaks.

Phil Hayes, a friend of Davis' who lives in Los Angeles, said Davis was "very talented" but also very modest.

"He was fantastic, very self-effacing," said Hayes. "He wouldn't take a compliment."

He was also an artist - a skill Hayes said Davis first picked up doing set design - and he had recently begun promoting his paintings and sculptures online.

It was very wierd seeing him in the movie Continuiem knowing he had just died. :cry:
Ditto on that. It was almost surreal when I saw him on screen. I was a little weirded out because I didn't realize he was in it in the first place.
