    I am very sorry to read this. I remember him as a kid when he played the classic character, Billy Clyde on AMC. He was great on the show

    I always loved the character Billy Clyde Tuggle.

    I was thinking about him just a couple of hours ago and now this new strikes me. Rip Mr Cowles. You were an asset to AMC.

  • you’ll be missed!

    I loved the character of Billy Clyde Tuggle, he was unforgettable, and it Matthew Cowles who made him that way. I wish I’d known he was on AMC again-I stopped watching it many years ago but would have tuned in again just to see mr BC Tuggle again! Thank you, Matthew, and rest peacefully.

    OMG he was such a great actor. I loved his role on All My Children when soap operas were great. I did not realize he was married to Christine Baranski. What a great acting duo. RIP Mr Cowles and condolences to his wife and family.
