Jonathan Harris

November 6, 1914 – November 3, 2002

Jonathan Charasuchin was an American character actor who became so good at playing villainous characters that he fought the typecast for most of his career. After high school, he legally changed his last name to Harris and went on to appear in hundreds of television shows, films and animated projects. He is, of course, most widely known for his portrayal of the evil Dr. Smith in the 1960s Sci-Fi series Lost in Space. Prior to that, he appeared opposite Michael Rennie in the popular mystery series The Third Man. He continued to appear in guest spots on TV shows and lent his distinct voice to dozens of animated shows and features including Rainbow Brite, Darkwing Duck, A Bug’s Life and Toy Story 2. Harris was married to his high school sweetheart for more than 60 years. He died of a blood clot in his heart shortly before his 88th birthday.
