"Robert Guillaume was a universally respected stage, television, and voice actor best known for his award-winning portrayal of Benson on the sitcom 'Soap' and its spinoff 'Benson'. The versatile Guillaume earned a Grammy for Best Spoken World Album for Children at the 37th Annual Grammy Awards for his narration of 'The Lion King Read-Along'. His portrayal of a richly textured African-American character was a TV milestone and, added to his impressive screen and stage performances, made a significant impact on our creative community. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family, friends, and all who have been impacted by his work."
