very sad; never saw him on any soaps but in many films/other TV shows. liked his steady/familiar presence….

read he passed from melanoma…though it’d been diagnosed in 1992. terrible that it either never left his system…or came back. just very sad and a loss to film/TV.

From 1983-85, he was the repulsive, universally-reviled Bradley Raines on GUIDING LIGHT – and he took no prisoners in that role. I’m sure it was difficult to play someone that two-faced & abusive on a soap. Supporting roles on movies & in evening tv series are one thing. But, 5 days/week for nearly 3 years (he recurred after 1985) on a soap must be quite draining. It feels odd to say that while I didn’t “enjoy” the storyline, it was certainly mesmerizing and riveting. He was a large part of it, and his unmasking in court as a rapist &… Read more »

A terrific character actor that could play both heavy and light roles. I’ve seen him in many movies, on many TV shows, and other programs. Very sad.

I remember him from Guiding Light as Bradley Raines. He made me hate him like he did in all his villain roles. Seems he made it impossible to see him any other way. He was a brilliant actor. My thoughts are with his family and other loved ones. He will truly be missed.

He was amazing as Bradley Raines on Guiding Light. I wish you had used a clip of him on GL.

So sad to hear this. Watched him many years in his role as Bradley Raines in my favorite soap, The Guiding Light. Had my picture taken with him in Central Park in the early 80s when we were on a day trip to New York and he was with fellow actors filming the “Santa Claus” sequence of the Guiding Light. Had a nice chat with him about the throes of unemployment and how it can affect the male ego. If you recall Bradley Raines was out of work and he stayed home drinking while his wife went to work at… Read more »

He was a wonderful actor. I knew his wife and send her my condolences. I enjoyed every performance in which I saw him, but probably remember him most as Angel’s father – a character so unlike his own, but played beautifully.

I think I can remember him on the “Edge of Night”, but the character name escapes me.

James Rebhorn was a great actor. He scared the heck out of me as Bradley Raines on Guiding Light. The clip from As The World Turns reminded me of the quality of those P&G soaps. RIP
