Don S Davis (1942-2008) Has Ascended

Tuesday, July 1 by Captain

The man first introduced to Australian audiences as a crafty Salmon fisherman ("I don't know how he can live with himself!") in an iconic John West commercial and then went on to provide the military-man-with-a-heart in such iconic shows as Twin Peaks, The X-Files and Stargate: SG-1 died Sunday the 29th of a heart attack at his home at Gibsons, in British Columbia. He was 65.


A beloved member of the Stargate SG-1 cast and crew since its inception in 1997, he left the show in 2003 due to poor health, returning for guest appearances. However, he did make an appearance in the latest film, Stargate: Continuum. Fans and friends have always responded well to his generous and warm nature.

He was an accomplished artist and woodworker - his work can be seen at Don S Davis Art.


He will be sorely missed by fans and friends alike.
