Carmen Argenziano (1943-2019)
The man who portrayed Jacob Carter, Stargate's "dad," has passed away at the age of 75.
The Stargate family mourns today at the passing of actor Carmen Argenziano. The veteran stage and screen actor died Saturday at the age of 75.
In the end he had well over 200 acting credits to his name. He won an L.A. Drama Critics award for his role as a troubled police detective in the stage play “A Prayer For My Daughter.” And in 2016 he made his directorial debut on the stage.
News of his passing was first announced by close friends on social media, and has been confirmed by one of his agents.
“This series has been wonderful for me,” he said. “More people recognize me as Jacob Carter than any other character I’ve played. I have a wonderful affinity for old Jacob.”
“Amanda is so supportive and so warm. She’s such a positive influence on the set,” Carmen told GateWorld in 2007. “She knows everyone’s name. Always up. Always supportive. Always helping. Always contributing.
“And I remember when I was struggling a little bit with some lines of some dialogue in the first episode. She just held my hand and made a connection. And I’ve loved her ever since, actually.”
Our condolences go out to Carmen’s family and loved ones. And we celebrate his life, his work, and his remarkable contribution to our lives.
