Go To

Frederick Joseph Ward (December 30, 1942 – May 13, 2022) was an American character actor, producer, and model of Irish and Cherokee descent.

He was best known for Southern Comfort, The Right Stuff, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, Tremors, Henry & June, The Player, and Short Cuts.

He was married to Carla Evonne Stewart, Silvia Ward, and Marie-France Boisslle and had one child.

He can be considered to be a Spiritual Predecessor to Frank Grillo, due to the Celebrity Resemblance between the two in terms of grizzled physical appearances with those intense eyes and sly grins and their similar filmographies of physically-demanding tough guy and action roles.

He passed away on May 13, 2022 at age 79.
