Tony award-winning actor and star of '80s sitcom "Cheers," Roger Rees died Friday at his home in New York City.
Rees was born in 1944 in Wales where he started his long and wide-ranging acting career by starring in plays. In a 2013 interview, Rees said he never even had plans to be an actor.
"I was painting scenery in a theater in South London and they wanted a young man to be in a play, so I was in the play. Suddenly, I was an actor," Rees said on The Graham Show. (Video via The Graham Show)
