American actor Joe Turkle, known in films such as “The Shining” and “Blade Runner”, has passed away. He is 94 years old.
The representative of the opposite actor confirms People.
“Very sad to share with you the passing of my dear friend and client Joe Turkle. Joe was upset by lightning and was very passionate about talking about movies, baseball and life. Every time we talked, he was quick to throw a bad joke and made me laugh,” says Chris Carbo.
Turkel died on Monday this week at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica.
The actor starred in more than 140 films and TV series throughout his career, including such films as “The Killings”, “Paths of Glory” and the aforementioned “The Shining”, where he played waiter Lloyd.
Among the series, he has appeared in his autobiography “The Lone Ranger”, “SWAT”, “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Miami Vice”. He resigned as an actor in 1997.
Born in New York, Turkel served in the US Army during World War II.
Later this year, the family will release an autobiography that the actor wrote before his death.
