R.I.P. Actor Barry Jenner

Recommended Posts

Wink Martindale posted on his Facebook page that actor Barry Jenner has died. He also posted a great clip from the $100,000 Pyramid. Barry also did stints on Somerset and Another World in the 70s.

Very sad to report our friend Barry Jenner has passed away. Barry was best known for his roles on Dallas, Family Matters and of course Star Trek Deep Space Nine, to name a few. In addition Barry was a great game player making many appearances on shows like Pyramid and Super Password. He was a kind and sweet man who, no matter who you were or how long you knew him, made you feel like you were lifelong friends when speaking to you. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.


From his DS9 costar:

My heart is broken.My thoughts are in grief&incomprehension.My good friend Barry Jenner has passed.Condolences to Suzanne&all who loved him.

I remember him for his Knots Landing role - Brian was the typical stolid, dumb ex-husband, yet I still felt for him as he kidnapped the kids and Abby made him pay.

I enjoyed his character on Dallas. I was glad to see him get even more airtime during Dallas dream season. I liked his pairing with Sue Ellen.

 

Btw I didn't know Wink was still alive.

Don't blame ya, jam. He was a good-looking guy and apparently very well-liked. He was also a Los Angeles Police Reserve Officer for 2 decades.

He died of leukemia. :(  Someone mentioned that he was supposed to attend the big Star Trek convention they had in Vegas the other week but he was too ill.

Looking at that clip from the game, he was so genuinely thrilled for his teammate to win the tournament. And they came so close to breaking Billy Crystal's record for fastest time. It was flawlessly played. He did it again with someone else, winning them the $100,000 when John Davidson hosted the game. Incidentally, apparently that contestant in the clip, MG McCormick, passed away just a few years later.

In an old newspaper article or soap mag article. It was prior to the role on Somerset, so I'm thinking he was an U/5  or something along a dayplayer. I think it said something along the lines of < Barry Jenner, who recently appeared on GL has taken the role of Tony Cooper on Somerset>  I hate when they don't name the character--LOL.

Thanks, Jam. I forgot to add the SFT role. I did have it in the CSCL thread.
