So sad to hear of the death of actor Orson Bean. He was fatally struck by a car in Venice. He was 91. I had the pleasure of interviewing him 2 months ago about his life, his career & his love of theatre. “You do movies & TV for a living and it’s okay…but theatre is what’s fun.” pic.twitter.com/q8Vr7Iv9Uy
