George Coe

Oscar-nominee George Coe died Saturday at the age of 86. He was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1968 comedy short film “The Dove,” which he co-directed as well as starred in.

Coe served on the Screen Actors Guild’s National Board of Directors for more than a dozen years, covering the period of 1967-1973 and again in the early 2000s.  Because of his union service, the Screen Actors Guild Hollywood Division honored Coe with its prestigious Ralph Morgan Award in 2009.

“It is with heavy hearts that our SAG-AFTRA family says goodbye to George Coe,” said SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard. “He was a stalwart unionist and a tremendous presence in our union for many years. He served his fellow actors and the labor movement with conviction and pride. Our deepest condolences go out to his family.”

Coe’s acting career includes more than 50 years of film, television, commercial and stage work; including the honor of being an original cast member of Saturday Night Live. Coe had a lengthy career as a commercial performer both on camera and voice over, including six years as the voice of Toyota.
