Irish actor Milo O'Shea, who played an evil scientist in Barbarella and a Supreme Court Chief Justice on The West Wing, died last week in Manhattan following a brief illness, The Associated Press reports.
Born and raised in Dublin, O'Shea studied music and drama at London's Guildhall School and began acting on stage and in films in the 1950s. He was nominated for a Tony Award in 1968 for his role as a gay man in Staircase, and also in 1982 for playing Father Tim Farley in Mass Appeal.
O'Shea is survived by his wife, Irish actress Kitty Sullivan, two sons and three grandchildren.
