Charles Keating | Daytime Emmy winner, 72

Charles Keating, 72, a British-born Shakespearean actor who was amused by the fame that came with being a soap-opera star on Another World, died Friday at his home in Weston, Conn. He was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago.

"He had promised my mom when he was first diagnosed that he would make it to their 50th anniversary. He made it almost to the hour" Friday, son Sean said.

Mr. Keating, who in the 1980s was on All My Children and As the World Turns, won a Daytime Emmy in 1996 for his role as the villainous Carl Hutchins on NBC's Another World.

Although he considered himself a stage actor, he was able to enjoy the attention he got from playing Hutchins from 1991 to 1999.

"At a restaurant, people would come up and grab him by the lapels and say, 'You're evil!' " Sean Keating recalled. - AP
