Actor David Dukes dies at age 55

TACOMA, Washington (CNN) -- Veteran actor David Dukes died Monday. The 55-year-old actor never regained consciousness after collapsing, according to Helen Glaum, hospital supervisor at St. Claire Hospital in Tacoma.

It was not immediately known what caused Dukes to collapse. Glaum said resuscitation measures failed.

Dukes was in Tacoma filming Stephen King's "Rose Red," a mini-series scheduled to air on the ABC television network. ABC and the Walt Disney Co. spent $500,000 to remodel Thornewood Castle for the miniseries, scheduled to be aired in the spring of 2002.

His TV credits include the miniseries "The Winds of War," in which he played low-level career diplomat Leslie Slote in 1983, and "War and Remembrance" in 1989.

He was better known to younger viewers as Mr. McPhee on the WB TV show "Dawson's Creek." Other TV credits include appearances on the "The Practice" and "Law & Order."

He was nominated for an Emmy award for best supporting actor in a miniseries or special for his role in "The Josephine Baker Story" on HBO in 1991.

He also played a role in the critically acclaimed 1998 movie "Gods and Monsters" about horror director James Whale.
