Numerous postings on social media and rumblings throughout the day were confirmed by Soap Opera Digest this afternoon, that none other than Daytime Emmy winner, and one of the most talented actors to ever grace the soap genre, Charles Keating has died at the age of 72!

Along with @LindaDano, he was my very first acting teacher. The actress I am is because of them.”

Reports are also coming in that Stephen Schnetzer (Ex-Cass) told Linda Dano (Ex-Felicia) of the heartbreaking news yesterday.

Soap fans also know that the London-born Keating appeared on All My Children, As the World Turns, and Port Charles at  different points throughout his illustrious career, and that Keating’s stage career had been extraordinary.

On-Air On-Soaps has also has heard reports that there will be no funeral for Keating, although that is unconfirmed at this time.  We will continue to bring you further details on the death of Charles Keating as it becomes available.

Didn’t watch the show and wasn’t familiar with him. Just watched the clip. What a seemingly charming, classy man! Condolences…

What a fantastic stage and screen presence! We are so fortunate to have so many clips of his work to watch. When I think of a classy actor, one who always managed to capture my attention and made me marvel at his work, Charles always comes to mind. We’ve lost a daytime great; the world has lost an amazing man. My sympathies go out to his family, co-stars and legions of fans. Rest in peace, Charles.

Mr. Keating was great on ANOTHER WORLD, elevating the experience by just his being there. He was a genuine actor, a top talent. Even though it has been 15 years since we left Bay City, the memories of Mr. Keating and Carl Hutchins remain and are celebrated

Wow! I saw a familiar face in Charles’ submitted scene…Lawrence Lau. I knew of him by my sister always talking about Greg and Jenny on All My Children. I googled Greg and Jenny and found the actor’s name and then googled him…sure enough, he played Dr. Jamie Frame on Another World from 1986-1990. I was not familiar with the work of Charles, but may he R.I.P. DAYS is the only soap I’ve ever watched regularly, but I’ll never forget the misery my sister went through when Jenny died from the jet-ski explosion…she said that was the meanest thing AMC ever… Read more »

I truly enjoyed his work as Carl, it was like watching a upscal broadway production whenever he was on screen. I never thought I could see Rachel with anyone other then Mac but thanks to Charles’s amazing talents he made me a Rachel & Carl super fan! Times like this shows how actors,who made their mark on daytime dramas do not get the respect they deserve because if we still had a cable network dedicated to past and present daytime dramas we would probaly receive a day of his best work in a marathon session on that network.

Heartbreaking. No other villain has been better written in daytime. No other redemption has been better written. A villain who becomes a hero because of his for a woman. AW was always the best written soap and Charles Keating filled the huge void left when Doug Watson passed away. No longer Mac’s nemesis, but a character who grew to fill Mac’s shoes. I hope you RIP Mr. Keating.

I began tuning in to Another World after the passing of Douglas Watson. Charles Keating was a wonderful presence on the show, and I learned to like his character because of his performances. I only wish I’d had the chance to see him on stage; no doubt he would have been mesmerizing.
So sorry to learn of his passing; 72 is still young. Sincere condolences to those he left behind and with whom he worked.

Ah, Another World (smile). Prolific actor.

A true joy to watch, as I did with Anthony Herrera (ATWT), and Michael Zaslow.

Now these were villians in the true sense of the word.

RIP.

Charles Keating : A Magnanimous person’a…. along with Rachel

Another World is so close to my heart… after but not less…. than “As the World Turns”

Rachel and Carl go down in the history books of that couple who persevered

intelligent, force, drive, humble, even keel… Rachel and Carl personified “whole” some.

He was a very good actor. Wow- this news reminds me of how much I lived Another World back in the day. I will never understand network decisions to kill off soaps. Would be great if they brought AW back some day.
