Twin Peaks star Kenneth Welsh has died at the age of 80.

The actor, who played Wyndham Earl, a mad FBI agent, in the popular series passed away on Thursday (05/05/22).

His son Devon Welsh wrote on Twitter: “My dad passed away on Thursday peacefully at home. I will always love him without words.”

Devon – who is a music artist – also hailed his father as a “giant of acting”.

He said: “He lived a wonderful life, he was the best father I could ask for and he touched so many lives. Please make a toast, watch the movie / TV show in which he participated, celebrate the giant of acting ”.

During his career, Welsh has starred in more than 100 TV and film projects.

ACTRA, the Canadian Film and Television Union, has already paid tribute to the deceased actor, describing Welsh as a “great” performer.

A statement from the union said: “ACTRA Toronto is very saddened today by the death of Kenneth Welsh. Ken has been one of Canada’s greatest performers of all time, with hundreds of memorable roles over the decades. He will be very sad. Our condolences to his loved ones.”

Welsh studied at the National Theater School of Canada in Montreal, and throughout his career he has played many historical figures, including Harry S. Truman, Thomas E. Dewey and Thomas Edison.

The actor actually developed a penchant for performances at an early age.

Welsh, who starred in TV shows such as “Twilight Zone” and “Love, Lies and Murder,” said: “I think as a child I was always a little great in class.

“I remember one of my school records saying, ‘Kenneth needs to calm down and stop bothering the class,’ so they transferred me to the next class to get rid of me.”
