[R.I.P.] ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘The People Under the Stairs’ Actor John Mahon Has Passed Away

Some sad news to report today as we’ve learned that actor John Mahon, who appeared in horror films including The Exorcist, passed away earlier this month at the age of 82.

John Mahon played “Language Lab Director” in William Friedkin’s horror classic The Exorcist, the actor’s very first on-screen appearance in a feature film. He subsequently played a police sergeant in Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs, while also appearing in episodes of genre shows “Roswell,” “The X-Files,” “Angel” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.”

The actor frequently played law enforcement characters in both films and television, also appearing in “T.J. Hooker,” “MacGyver,” “Baywatch,” “Knots Landing,” One False Move, L.A. Confidential, Armageddon, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Zodiac.

Mahon wrote the 2014 book A Life of Make Believe: From Paralysis to Hollywood, telling the inspiring story of how he overcame polio as a child and became an actor in Hollywood.

As The Hollywood Reporter explains, “When he was 12, Mahon contracted poliomyelitis, or infantile paralysis, and spent almost nine months fully paralyzed. He never recovered full use of his left arm but became a mentor to actors with disabilities.”

We offer our condolences to the family and friends of John Mahon.
