Sad. Col. Douglas was one of the great recurring characters on Y&R.

Soap and stage actor Evans dies

British actor Michael Evans, who starred on Broadway in Gigi opposite Audrey Hepburn, has died aged 87.

Evans also played Colonel Douglas Austin in long-running US soap opera The Young and the Restless.

He was born in Kent but moved to the US in the 1950s. His son Nick said his father died of age-related complications on 4 September.

Evans also appeared in numerous TV shows including Dr Kildare and The Man from UNCLE.

"Michael Evans was a total professional from the old English school, a gentleman through and through," said Eric Braeden, who co-starred in The Young and the Restless.

Oh, wow. I had forgotten about Douglas.

He was a great character.

I do not think that he was a great character, but a good one. Victor needs a close friend, and that person should be Neil Winters. For many years now, Neil acts more like a close business partner.
