Ricardo Montalban passed away today in his home in Los Angeles. He was 88. No cause of death was given.
The Mexican-born actor began working on the New York City stage for 4 years, and then, was offered a contract to come to work at MGM in Hollywood in 1946.
It was his starring role in the TV series FANTASY ISLAND (1978-84) that cemented his popularity. He was also known for playing "Khan," a nemesis for STAR TREK's Captain Kirk twice: during the original series and then again, 15 years later, in STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN.
