William Campbell, a veteran TV actor who starred in television series from "Gunsmoke to "Star Trek" to "Perry Mason," and was married to President John F. Kennedy paramour Judith Campbell Exner, has died of natural causes.
He was 87.
Campbell died Thursday at the Motion Picture & Television Fund's hospital in the San Fernando Valley, according to media reports.
Campbell worked steadily through the 1960s and 1970s in a long line of television series.
He had film roles in the 1950s, such as "Man in the Vault," with Anita Ekberg (pictured), and also appeared in 'Dementia: 13," Francis Ford Coppola's early horror film.
Campbell met JFK's lover Judith Exner, then Judith Immoor, in 1952 at a party when she belonged to "the young Hollywood set," according to the Los Angeles Times. They married that year and divorced in 1958. She died in 1999.
Campbell is survived by his wife, Tereza, whom he married in 1963.
