Numerous sources are reporting that actor Chris Wiggins passed away on 2-22-2017 at the age of 86. He was born in England, but lived in Canada for a long time. An actor and voice actor he had a career that spanned seven decades. Probably his most known role was that of world traveler/adventurer/studier of the occult turned cursed antique finder Jack Marshak in Friday the 13th the series. He was my favorite character in that show and often seemed the backbone of the group. He had a great voice so it’s no wonder he voiced cartoons for decades including the 60’s Spider-Man, The Care-Bear Family, Franklin and many more. I knew he was still around, but was saddened to hear of his passing. I’ll be watching some episodes of Friday the 13th the series this weekend for sure.
