    On April 5, 2008, the television and film industry lost a true icon, Charlton Heston. With his wife Lydia by his side, Mr. Heston passed away at the age of eighty-four in his Beverly Hills home, leaving fans throughout the world grieving his death.

    Although the great man will always be remembered for his roles in such highly notorious works as Ben Hur, Planet of the Apes, Tombstone, and The Ten Commandments, to name a very small few credits from his extremely impressive career, fans may also remember his soap opera roles! In 1985, he appeared in the primetime soap Dynasty as Jason Colby as well as in Dynasty II: The Colby’s from 1985 to 1987. He even made a guest appearance as himself in 1993 on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful! While Mr. Heston also dabbled in directing and writing, he was a proud member, and one-time president, of the NRA (National Rifle Association).

    Soaps.com wants to send our deepest condolences to Mr. Heston’s wife and family. We will never forget the mark he made in the entertainment industry. He’ll be forever sadly missed.

    I had completely forgotten about his time on B&B! He played himself and of course, the Forresters were friends with him.

    Thanks for reminding me of yet another aspect of Mr. Heston's life.
