RIP: Gerard Parkes (Fraggle Rock)

As a kid, Saturday mornings and Fraggle Rock were a weekly ritual. Sadly, Gerard Parkes, who played Doc, the only human on the Jim Henson puppet series, passed away on Sunday aged 90.


Born in Dublin, the actor relocated to Canada after World War II. He began acting in television with a 1960 appearance on the series The Encounter.

Parkes also had a role in The Boondock Saints in 1999.
