As The Daily Mail reports:
Inside The Actor’s Studio’s creator and longtime host James Lipton has died, aged 93.
Lipton, who died peacefully early Monday at his New York home, was suffering from bladder cancer, his wife Kedakai Turner told The Hollywood Reporter.
In his 22 seasons hosting his iconic Bravo show, Lipton interviewed the greats of Hollywood, with nearly 300 stars joining him to answer questions about their craft in front of an audience of student actors.
From Angelina Jolie to Al Pacino, Halle Berry to Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep, Lipton was remarkably never turned down by an invited guest – bar the reclusive Marlon Brando.
Lipton served in the airforce during the second world war and trained as a lawyer before discovering his true passion for acting. His Lipton is survived by his wife of 50 years, Kedakai Turner.
