Brad Johnson, who was most known for his role in Steven Spielberg’s romantic drama Always and his role on Fox’s Melrose Place, died on February 18 in Fort Worth, Texas. He was 62 years old at the time. Johnson’s spokesman verified the news to EW.
There was no mention of a cause of death.
Johnson, who was born in Tucson, Arizona, in 1959, began his professional rodeo career in 1984, when he was spotted by a casting director looking for cowboys to act in a beer commercial. Before he started acting, he had a period as the Marlboro Man and worked as a model for Calvin Klein. In a 1986 episode of CBS’s soap series Dallas, he made his debut.
Johnson landed a recurring part as pediatrician Dominick O’Malley in the serial opera Melrose Place in 1996, followed by a role as Maj. Matthew Quentin Shepherd on the syndicated adventure series Soldier of Fortune, Inc. in 1997.
Outside of performing, Johnson worked as a ranch real estate broker in North Texas, restoring ancient Winchester Model 1886 rifles. His wife Laurie, as well as their children Shane, Bellamy, Rachel, Eliana, Eden, Rebekah, Annabeth, and William, survive him.
