The London-born actor is described by his ex-wife Casey Defranco as “a wonderful person, extraordinarily talented as an actor.”
A message on Sachs' official website reads, “This is a post we never thought we would have to write. It is with great sadness that we have to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Robin Sachs.”
It continues, “Please join us in raising a glass to Robin - goodbye, dear friend. Thank you for all the laughter and the cookies. We will miss you so very much.”
Sachs’ first role was reportedly with the British Hammer film studio in the movie Vampire Circus.
Throughout his veteran movie career, he was closely associated with science fiction, according to BBC News. Sachs worked on several sci-fi shows, with appearances in “Babylon 5,” “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Torchwood: Miracle Day.” In 1999, he played Sarris in the satirical comedy Galaxy Quest, which co-starred Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman.
His stage work included touring productions of “Hamlet” and “Twelfth Night,” and later in his career, Sachs provided voices for several video games including “Mass Effect 2,” “Mass Effect 3” and “Resident Evil Damnation.”
