Richard Hatch Dead - 'Battlestar Galactica' Actor Dies at 71

Battlestar Galactica actor Richard Hatch has sadly passed away at the age of 71.

The actor lost his battle to pancreatic cancer after being admitted into hospice care a few weeks ago, according to TMZ.

Richard got his start in the acting world with a role on the soap opera All My Children back in 1970. Eight years later, he landed his role on Battlestar Galactica and he earned a Golden Globe nomination for his work as Captain Apollo.

When the series was rebooted in 2004, he joined the show as the character Tom Zarek.

We send our thoughts and condolences to Richard‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
