Hadley died on Wednesday at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, according to his friend Darcy Lee.
“We talked about movies and art.. and we laughed a lot! He even made me laugh on his death bed,” wrote Lee in a post. “He waited to pass tonight until my show was over and I walked out of the theatre. He took his last bow as I got into the car to come home. I will miss you terribly Brett Hadley – and thank you for being in my life.”
Throughout his career, Hadley appeared in films like “Next of Kin” and “The Mad Bomber” as well as television programs like “Marcus Welby, M.D.,” “The Waltons,” “The Rockford Files,” “Highway to Heaven” and CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless.” From 1980 to 1999, Hadley starred in over 200 episodes of “Y&R” as Genoa City police detective Carl Williams, husband of Mary Williams.
