ROBERT AXELROD, voice of Lord Zedd and Finister in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has died aged 70.
Axelrod played Lord Zedd in the flesh in Mighty Morphin Power Ranger: Live in 1996 but his career was layered with characters.
He played more than 150 and featured in Digimon and Samurai Pizza Cat, for which he wrote more than 50 episodes.
He was a well-known guitarist in the early 70s, playing folk rock and soul and was also a singer before becoming a famous voice-over actor.
He starred in Stranger in Moscow, Michael Jackson’s 1995 music video from the album HIStory, which has been viewed on YouTube more than 46 million times.
His most recent credit was the 2019 comedy thriller, Induced Effect, which was released last April.
“His beautiful and kindred soul will never be forgotten, and we take comfort in knowing his memory will live on in all those he inspired, met and knew,” his agent said.
