Treat Williams Dies In Motorcycle Accident: ‘Everwood’ Star Was 71

UPDATED with family statement: Treat Williams, the actor best known for playing Dr. Andy Brown on the Greg Berlanti-produced Everwood, has died, Deadline has confirmed. The actor was killed in a motorcycle accident in Dorset, Vermont. He was 71.

His family issued the following statement to Deadline:

A Statement on the Passing of Treat Williams:

It is with great sadness that we report that our beloved Treat Williams has passed away tonight in Dorset, Vermont after a fatal motorcycle accident. As you can imagine, we are shocked and greatly bereaved at this time. Treat was full of love for his family, for his life and for his craft, and was truly at the top of his game in all of it. It is all so shocking right now, but please know that Treat was dearly and deeply loved and respected by his family and everyone who knew him. We are beyond devastated and ask that you respect our privacy as we deal with our grief. To all his fans, please know that Treat appreciated all of you and please continue to keep him in your hearts and prayers.

Williams played the kindhearted lead on Everwood for four years, a role that seemed to fit the actor perfectly. Williams received two SAG Award nominations for his work on the show. The series was never a ratings blockbuster, but it helped launch the careers of Chris Pratt, Emily VanCamp and Gregory Smith. Williams was well-seasoned by the time the show came around.

He made his film debut in the 1975 thriller film Deadly Hero. The following year he played a supporting role in The Ritz and also appeared in John Sturges’ The Eagle Has Landed. His breakthrough came in 1979, when he starred as George Berger in  Miloš Forman’s Hair, based on the 1967 Broadway musical. Williams was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for the film.

His other big-screen work includes Steven Spielberg’s 1941 (1979), Sidney Lumet’s Prince of the City (1981), Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time In America (1984), Dead Heat (1988), Things to Do in Denver When You’re Dead (1995) and Deep Rising (1998).

On TV, Williams’ career stretched back 40 years to a starring role in the 1983 TV movie Dempsey about the former heavyweight champ to whom the actor bore more than a passing resemblance.

Most-recently appeared in a six-episode arc on Blue Bloods as Lenny Ross. Before that, he appeared in the Hallmark Channel’s Chesapeake Shores from 2016-2022.
