Post OBITUARY: Theodore Bikel, 91, Played Tevye Most Often
Theodore Bikel, who played Tevye more often than any other actor, died in Los Angeles July 21 at 91. Since 1967, he played Tevye over 2000 times; that included stepping in for the sidelined Topol several times in 2010. He was also known for originating the role of Captain von Trapp in The Sound of Music in 1959, for playing Zoltan Karpathy in the 1964 film My Fair Lady , and as president of Actors' Equity from 1977-82. That's just a very short summary of a long and impressive CV. He leaves huge boots that no one else can fill. Ruhe in Frieden, Theodor.
