Fortunately for us all those who needed to remember names ... agents, producers and directors ... always remembered Daniel’s.
We are sad to report that Daniel has died at the too early age of 64.
Daniel’s career spanned six decades (he’s been acting since age two) that many might have thought him to be much older than 64 because you name a TV show or film and it is likely he had a role to play in it.
His very first credit was as a baby in the most successful soap opera in radio and TV history, “The Guiding Light.” He went on to star or guest on other television productions such as “All My Children,” “Spenser: For Hire,” “NYPD Blue,” “The Pretender,” “Seinfeld,” “The West Wing,” and many more.
The sought after character actor also garnered roles in such landmark films as “Silence of the Lambs,” “O Brother, Where Art Thou?,” “Basic Instinct,” and “The General’s Daughter.”
Daniel did his fair share of science fiction, horror and fantasy features with roles on “The X-Files,” “Fantasy Island,” “The Faculty,” “Thinner” and “Universal Soldier: The Return.”
Daniel has been suffering from debilitation due to aggressive diabetes. He already lost one leg to the disease and was due to have some toes removed from his other foot. This caused him to fall into a deep state of depression and he committed suicide.
Daniel Von Bargen will be greatly missed by all his fans and those who loved his characterizations on film.
