I feel ashamed because I didn’t even realize he died last weekend until now and I actually had to look up who he was. But I knew his name sounded familiar. He played Mr. Wright on Ned’s Declassified.
R.I.P. Meshach Taylor
On June 28th, actor Meshach Taylor passed away at the age of 67 due to cancer. If you’re like me, you know him as Principal Wright from Ned’s Declassified, but he’s been on a million other shows as well, such as CBS’s the Incredible Hulk, MASH, Designing Women, ALF, and other minor rolls in stuff all over the place.
Although he often played some sort of background character or guest star, Taylor still managed to leave an impact everywhere he went. The hole he leaves in the acting community, as well as many childhoods, can never be filled.
