Patrick McGoohan Passes at 80


Emmy-winning actor Patrick McGoohan, who created and starred in the popular cult television series “The Prisoner” died yesterday in Los Angeles.

Besides “The Prisoner,” he was also known for his starring role in “Danger Man” (known as “Secret Agent” here in the US), a pseudo-prequel to “The Prisoner.” He also appeared in Braveheart, A Time to Kill, Escape from Alcatraz and Disney’s The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh.

Currently AMC is prepping a new version of “The Prisoner” for American audiences, but it just won’t be the same without McGoohan.

Number Six will be missed.
