Actors David Soul, Jaclyn Smith, and Tony Curtis have paid tribute to late TV legend Aaron Spelling, who died on Friday. The Hollywood producer, who was responsible for a host of shows including Charlie’s Angels, Dynasty, Starsky & Hutch and Beverly Hills, 90210, passed away in his Los Angeles home following a stroke.
Former Angel Smith laments, “Aaron’s contributions in television are unequalled. To me, he was a dear friend and a truly genuine human being.” Starsky & Hutch star Soul says:
Spelling was one of those characters who doesn’t exist too much in Hollywood anymore. He created a family of actors. He was television. He was an ideas man.
While Curtis, who starred in Spelling’s 1970s TV series Vega$, recalls, “Aaron loved Las Vegas. I got the impression he wanted to live here.”
