Brent Carver, who took home the Tony for his leading turn in 1993's Kiss of the Spider Woman, died on August 4 at the age of 68. The actor passed away in his hometown of Cranbrook, BC in Canada. The cause of death has not been revealed.

Born on November 17, 1951, Carver began his career in 1972 when he appeared on the popular Canadian comedy-drama The Beachcombers.
