I am a big fan of the late actor Peter Boyle from Everybody Loves Raymond. I know he did a lot of movies and TV shows. Did he ever win any awards? And was he married?

Boyle, who died in December 2006 at the age of 71, received only one major award, an Emmy in 1996 for a guest role on TV’s The X-Files, during his long acting career. He met his wife, Loraine, when she came as a Rolling Stone reporter to interview him on the movie set of the comedy Young Frankenstein—in which he memorably played the misunderstood monster—in 1974. You can see Boyle in his final role, which he completed shortly before his death, when the family film All Roads Lead Home is released on DVD this month.
