Television director, Terrence O’Hara who is known for his work on NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Smallville, JAG, Grimm, The Blacklist and more has died at the age of 76. His daughter, Maddie confirmed her father’s passing with an Instagram post saying that he passed away on December 5 due to cancer. “I never thought I’d be writing those words— it’s surreal. I’ve always imagined him walking me down the aisle, watching his grandkids grow up, and getting old at the lake with my mom. But cancers a bitch, and his life was cut too short,” she shared. “He’s been quietly battling for the past 5 years, this whole time, directing, working, fighting, and smiling through it. He was famous for his infectious laugh, his noisy ass sneeze, his wild sailor mouth on set, his incredible, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant mind…I could go on.”
Terrence briefly appeared on Ryan’s Hope. May he rest in peace. We send our condolences to his family and friends.
