Benjamin Hendrickson, Rest In Peace
I was away all week in Las Vegas, but while there, I heard of the sad, shocking passing of Emmy-award winning As The World Turns actor, Ben Hendrickson, who played Chief of Detectives Hal Munson for over 20 years. He was a theater actor who thought he was only signing on to play a 1-day role. But Ben was so much more. His quiet, heartfelt portrayal moved all who watched him.
He'd suffered horrible losses over the last few years -- his beloved mother and brother -- which probably played a large part in his taking his own life. Hopefully he is finally at peace.
