TORONTO — Veteran actor Charles Keating — best known for playing Carl Hutchins on the daytime drama Another World — has died after a battle with cancer. He was 72.

Keating’s former Another World co-star Alicia Coppola shared the news Saturday on Twitter.

“I am so very sad,” she wrote.

Born in England, Keating acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company before taking roles on television both in the UK and America.

He earned a Daytime Emmy in 1996 for playing Hutchins on Another World and was nominated for a Tony in 1986 for the play Loot.

Keating’s films included The Bodyguard, 1999’s The Thomas Crown Affair and Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo.

In 2010, the actor was the special guest at the Dr. Bob Ewert Memorial Lecture and Dinner at the University of Northern British Columbia, where he presented his one-man show on aging, I and I: The Sense of Self.

Keating is survived by wife Mary and their two sons.
