Posted November 15, 2018 09:08:17The late Perry Greenete’s former star on the soap opera Mustard Greens has died.
He was 93.
Perry Greene was one of the most popular soap stars of his day and was also a huge supporter of the gay rights movement.
In an interview with The Sunday Times in 1979, Perry Green was asked if he was gay and he replied: “I am not.”
But Perry’s marriage was not a happy one.
Perry married his partner, actress Patricia Arquette, in 1974 and they had three children.
Their marriage lasted for five years but they broke up in 1977 and she moved in with her lover, actor John Hughes, in Los Angeles.
In 1979, she wrote a song about Hughes, entitled “The End of Love”.
Perry and Hughes married in 1984 and had three daughters: Barbara, Sarah and Jane.
Perry was also married twice before that, to actress Kate Moss.
On the Today programme, Sarah Greene, Perry’s daughter, revealed: “Perry was the greatest father of my life.
He made me love myself and love my husband.
It was an incredible family.”
Perry died of complications from pneumonia in October at the age of 93.
“He was the best father of the world,” Sarah said.
“He loved his children, his wife and his family and he always gave his best.”
Perrey’s family and friends have paid tribute to the actor, who they described as a “very talented actor and a very good friend”.
“His life was full of joy and beauty and he will be sorely missed by his family,” said a statement from the actor’s publicist, Kate Bierstein.
“Perry is greatly missed by everyone who knew him and everyone who was lucky enough to know him.
He is the epitome of a great actor and an extraordinary human being.”
Perrys funeral will be held at St Mary’s Cathedral in Los Gatos.
