Ricardo Montalban, Mr. Roarke in Fantasy Island and Khan in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, died today at the age of 88. No cause of death was given. The AP writes:
But Montalban was best known as the faintly mysterious, white-suited Mr. Roarke, who presided over a tropical island resort where visitors were able to fulfill their lifelong dreams — usually at the unexpected expense of a difficult life lesson. Following a floatplane landing and lei ceremony, he greeted each guest with the line: “I am Mr. Roarke, your host. Welcome to Fantasy Island.”
R.I.P. Ricardo and remember, “KHHHAAAAAAAAAAN!” Please excuse the video below.
