RIP DAY OF THE DEAD’S GARY KLAR

Posted on: January 2nd, 2021

We’re saddened to hear that Gary Howard Klar has passed away at the age of 73. The actor was best known to horror fans for playing Steel in George A. Romero’s 1985 zombie classic Day of the Dead.

“Gary needs no introduction to Romero fans,” the George A. Romero Foundation wrote on Facebook, “having so iconically played Private Steele in Day of the Dead, bringing his unique acting abilities to the role, making George A. Romero‘s dialogue so quotable.”

Klar also had memorable roles in films like Trading Places, Hackers, and Big. Outside of acting, he was an Olympic weightlifter and played both college and professional football. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
