    Let's not forget his turn as a Japanese mobster in the first season of Hawaii 5-0!

    Geez, rough day for classic TV fans with news of Patrick MacGoohan's passing today as well!

    Default I did not know this...

    He was born and died as a Mexican citizen, at 88. A long life well lived, no doubt.

    It was good that he kept his accent for all the different roles he played. It would have been distracting if he didn't have an accent.

    Did the viewers on the mainland know the differences in accents in the 1970's?
