Orson Bean, Longtime Husband to B&B’s Alley Mills, Struck And Killed By Car

Heartbreaking news this morning.  One of the most beloved actors, Orson Bean, was killed last night in Los Angeles, California when he was reportedly struck and killed by a car.  Bean was 91-years-old.

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful know that Bean was married to cast member, Alley Mills (Pam).  Their marriage lasted 27 years.

Various reports have been coming in on what happened at the scene: Los Angeles Police Captain. Brian Wendling initially said that a man had been walking in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles and was clipped by a vehicle, causing him to fall. Then, a second driver struck him again, which was the cause of his death.   It has also been reported that both drivers stayed on the scene and attempted to administer aid but Bean died at the scene.

There were also reports that Alley Mills, 68, who Bean was married to for 27 years and his third wife, was at the scene at the time of the accident.

Bean’s acting career spanned decades, where he appeared in numerous comedy and drama television series, as well as games hows.  In recent years he appeared on Modern Family, Desperate Housewives,  Hot in Cleveland and Grace & Frankie.

Mills and Bean has just performed together in a play Bad Habits which ended its run last week in Santa Monica, California.

Orson Bean is survived by his daughter, Michele, from his first marriage, and sons Max and Ezekiel and daughter Susannah from his marriage to Carolyn Maxwell.

We will continue to update you as any new information comes to light.

I remember Mr. Bean as an early supporter of Barbra Streisand in the early 1960s when she appeared on his talk show. Imagine the wonderful showbiz stories he must have had. And what a tragic way to go…he will be missed.

What a sad, shocking end for such a brilliant and precious individual! As a child, I grew up watching Orson Bean primarily as a talk-show guest/raconteur extraordinaire…his immense intelligence and sparkling wit always appealed to me, even when I was a mere youngster! Of course, his numerous episodic television appearances also delighted me throughout the decades, particularly when he would be at his highly-cantankerous and naughtiest best during his twilight years. He never, ever gave a bad performance! Having said that, perhaps my favorite aspect of Orson Bean was his most recent role as a genial conservative warrior….I truly enjoyed… Read more »

Thank you, Christine Harmon! By the way, I just listened to Orson’s (unfortunately) final podcast interview, and he was every bit the spry, sweet, sage and jovial gentleman as ever…you could easily envision that famously naughty glint in his eyes as he spoke!!! Here was a wise, accomplished elder personage who had lived an amazing life far beyond that of simply an actor, albeit an immensely talented one….and he was truly 91 years young with so very much left to offer!!! It’s an absolute tragedy that he was taken from this world so cruelly and suddenly. I’m still extremely shocked… Read more »

Shocked when I saw this. I immediately thought of Alley. So sad.

Was Orson in a crosswalk? I don’t know who had ROW.

I read he was not in a crosswalk. And probably didn’t have ROW. I guess he didn’t see the car and car didn’t see him.

Be careful when crossing the street!

It wasn’t hit and run. Drivers stayed at the scene. It actually sounds like Orson was in the wrong.
