Paul Michael Glaser is remembering his friend David Soul, who recently passed away. Glaser, who acted alongside Soul in the show Starsky & Hutch, says David was like a brother and a caring person. Glaser, who is 80 years old, finds it hard to believe that David is gone and remembers the times they used to jokingly insult each other on the phone.
He extends his condolences to David’s wife, Helen, whom David loved dearly. Glaser also sends his sympathies to David’s sons and daughter. He appreciates the support from the public, who recognized their special friendship. The two actors worked together on Starsky & Hutch from 1975-1979, where they played detectives solving crimes in California.
In 2023, there were talks about rebooting the show with female leads. David Soul questioned why they couldn’t be part of the reboot, suggesting they could play older detectives solving small crimes in an assisted living facility. Glaser responded humorously, asking to be described as an ‘old fart’ without the ‘old’ part.
David Soul’s wife, Helen Snell, announced his passing on Wednesday after a tough battle. She described him as a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother, highlighting his talents as an actor, singer, and storyteller. She emphasized his smile, laughter, and passion for life, which will be remembered by those whose lives he touched.
