Morgan Stevens Dies: Veteran Television Actor On ‘Fame’ And ‘Melrose Place’ Was 70


Actor Morgan Stevens, who played Nick Diamond on the show “Melrose Place,” died Wednesday at his home. He was 70.

According to a TMZ source, Stevens hadn’t been seen or heard from in a few days.

A neighbor called authorities to do a wellness check, the insider said. Authorities confirmed to TMZ that the TV star was found in his kitchen, where he was pronounced dead.

Police suspect no foul play and believe he most likely died of natural causes.

Stevens had many guest spots across television. Aside from working on the Aaron Spelling drama, he also appeared on the show “Fame.” He played teacher David Reardon for two seasons.

He also appeared in the historical drama “The Waltons” as well as the series’ subsequent three reunion movie spin-offs.

His other roles included parts on numerous classic TV shows such as “A Year in the Life,” “Murder, She Wrote,” “One Day at a Time,” “Murder One” and “Walker, Texas Ranger.” The latter, in 1999, was his last on-screen appearance.
