Actor Don S. Davis of Stargate, dead at 65

Stargate SG-1's Don S. Davis has died; he was 65.

Executive producer Joseph Mallozzi of Stargate: Atlantis today spoke to Monsters and Critics on the phone in a conference call, and noted the passing of the actor he cited as a wonderfully warm and talented human being. 

Joe Mallozzi remembered the actor: 'Hellooo, Jooooe!' It was a greeting Id come to associate with the man, a good-natured, self-deprecating southern gent who always had a story to tell but, more than anything, always wanted to hear how YOU were doing."

Mallozzi has posted the special entry about Davis in his ongoing blog: Thoughts and Tirades, Rants and Ruminations.  MALLOZZIS_TRIBUTE

Don S. Davis, who played Maj. Gen. George Hammond on SCI FI Channel's Stargate SG-1 for seven seasons, died June 29 after suffering a heart attack.
