—Susan Ganus, Warner Robbins, Ga.

Edwards, who set the standard for TV physicians with his portrayal of the confrontational, crusading Dr. Casey, died in 1996 of pancreatic cancer. While he worked consistently after Ben Casey ended in 1966, it was mainly in smaller TV and forgettable movie roles. He portrayed the good doctor again in a 1988 TV movie, The Return of Ben Casey.
