Bio

Ossie Davis (18 December, 1917 – 4 February, 2005) was an American actor, director, poet, playwright, author and social activist who found recognition late in his life by working in several of director Spike Lee's films, including Do The Right Thing, Jungle Fever, She Hate Me and Get on the Bus.

He also found work as a commercial voice-over artist and served as the narrator of the early-1990s CBS sitcom Evening Shade, starring Burt Reynolds, where he also played one of the residents of a small southern town.

In 1948, Davis married actress Ruby Dee and remained married to her until his death in 2005. The couple starred together in the 1994 miniseries The Stand, based on the novel by Stephen King.

Davis was found dead in a Miami, Florida, hotel room on 9 February, 2005. An official cause of death was not released.
