(CNN) — Another familiar Hollywood face bid farewell late Saturday — actor Meshach Taylor. He died at age 67 at his Los Angeles area home, his agent Dede Binder said.
Many may remember him from “Designing Women,” where he played assistant Anthony Bouvier.
Taylor had fought a terminal illness and faded markedly in recent days. His wife, children, grandchildren and mother surrounded him as he passed away, Binder said.
Taylor made his screen debut in the 1978 movie “Damien: Omen II.” He has appeared regularly in television dramas since, including the series “In the Heat of the Night,” “Hannah Montana,” and “All of Us,” according to his profile on the International Movie Database.
