Tragedy struck the movie industry when reports emerged that famous actor Gary Graham died at the age of 73.

Graham, who has starred in several movies, is well known for his work in the popular movie franchises “Star Trek: Enterprise” and “Alien Nation.”

According to Daily Wire, Graham’s death was announced by his ex-wife, actress Susan Lavelle, in a Facebook message.

“It is with deep profound sadness to say that Gary Graham, my ex-husband, amazing actor, and father of our beautiful only child together, Haylee Graham, has passed away today,” Lavelle wrote. “We are completely devastated, especially our daughter Haylee. His wife, Becky, was by his side.”

Lavelle went on to describe how she met Graham when she was in her early twenties.

“I met Gary when I was just 20 years old and he was one half of the star duo on the tv series, Alien Nation. But he had already been in movies including ‘All the Right Moves’ with Tom Cruise. Of course, Gary has many more credits,” she wrote. “Gary had a funny, sarcastic sense of humor but was kind, fought for what he believed in, was a devout Christian, and was so proud of his daughter, Haylee.” This was sudden, so please pray for our daughter as she navigates through this thing called grief. Fly high into the heavens Gar! Thank you for our journey and thank you for the gifts you left me in acting, my love of horses, and most importantly, our daughter.”

Becky later confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Graham died of cardiac arrest at a hospital in Washington. Born on Jan. 6, 1950, in Long Beach, California, Graham started making rounds on TV shows including “The Quest,” “Eight Is Enough,” “Starsky” and “Hutch,” “Police Woman,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Knots Landing,” and “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

He had the recurring role of Capt. Ken Hetrick in the sci-fi drama “M.A.N.T.I.S.” from 1994-1995. He portrayed the Vulcan Ambassador Soval on Star Trek: Enterprise from 2001-2005 and played different characters in other Star Trek works.

His final released work was a 2023 short film written by his daughter titled “Planted,” in which he starred as Grandpa Jerry.
