Passions audiences have long known him as Father Lonigan, the blind and saintly priest with a penchant for premonitions of evil. He has served as the most faithful confidante of Pilar and as the spiritual adviser to Harmony's morally dubious citizens for years. He's also one of the few people to consistently go up against Alistair Crane, losing his sight in the battle, but surviving none the less. Since the show moved to DirecTV, we haven't seen much of the kind hearted clergyman, but Bruce French, the man who has been playing Father Lonigan since the show began in 1999, has been keeping busy.
French could be seen most recently in an episode of the eccentric courtroom fantasy, Eli Stone. Audiences have also been able to see him over the past few months on shows like Jane Doe and Bones as well as the critically acclaimed series The Riches. He's been appearing on that show in a regular role as Jim Burns, Eddie Izzard's wealthy neighbor.
