Remembering Meshach Taylor 1947 - 2014

Actor Meshach Taylor, who died Saturday at age 67, will always be remembered as Anthony Bouvier on the 1986-93 sitcom, Designing Women, for which he received a 1989 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. His other television credits include the sitcoms, Buffalo Bill (1983-84), Dave's World (1993-97) and Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (2004-07).

He also appeared as flamboyant window dresser Hollywood Montrose in the feature films, Mannequin (1987) and Mannequin 2: On the Move (1991). And he made his film debut in the 1978 horror film, Damien: Omen II.

Taylor's first professional acting gig was in a national tour of Hair. He was also a member of Chicago’s Goodman Theatre and the Organic Theater Company, and he received an Emmy Award for his role as Jim (opposite John Cameron Mitchell's Huck) in a 1985 WTTW TV production of Organic's adaptation of Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Taylor returned to the stage in 1998 when he made his Broadway debut as Lumiere in the musical, Beauty and the Beast.

Below you can watch Meshach Taylor in two episodes of Designing Women - Season 2's "Stranded" and Season 4's "The Proxy Pig and Great Pretenders" - and the trailer for Mannequin.
