Robert Axelrod passes away aged 70

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to announce that Lord Zedd himself, Robert Axelrod, has passed away at the age of 70 years old. The sad news was broken by his agent:

“It is with a heavy heart that we write that client, Robert “Bob” Axelrod passed away yesterday in Los Angeles at the age of 70. Robert enjoyed meeting his fans and inspiring them to follow their passions. His beautiful and kindred soul will never be forgotten and we take comfort in knowing his memory will live on in all those he inspired, met and knew.”

Axelrod was known globally for voicing Lord Zedd in the Power Rangers franchise but he also lent his voice talents to Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Danguard Ace, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, Digimon: Digital Monsters, Transformers: Robots in Disguise, BeetleBorgs, Spider-Man, and Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team amongst others.

As an actor he appeared in Star Trek: Voyager, Death Wish 4: The Crackdown, Sorority House Massacre, Bates Motel, Hunter, Silk Stalkings, Profiler, The Blob, The Revenant, and in Michael Jackson’s “Stranger in Moscow” music video.
