RIP Curt Lowens

The actor who played Varn in "A Voice in the Wilderness" and the Old One of Dureena's species in "Patterns of the Soul" has died, aged 91. Joe Nazzaro did a lovely interview with him that appears in--I think--Crusade: Behind the Scenes, in which he discussed the irony of being a Holocaust survivor who spent his career playing Nazi officers.

I may be mis-remembering, but I'm pretty sure he auditioned for the role of the emperor in "The Coming of Shadows," but that went to Turhan Bey.

R.I.P. Sad news, but I think 91 is a pretty good number to get to if you can.
