Kenneth Mitchell, known for his roles in ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Captain Marvel’, dies at 49 – Chicago Tribune


LOS ANGELES – Canadian actor Kenneth Mitchell, known for his roles in the “Star Trek: Discovery” series and the movie “Captain Marvel,” died Saturday. He was 49 years old.

Mitchell had been living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, the neurological disorder that causes paralysis and death, for more than five years, according to a statement from Mitchell’s family, which Mitchell shared on social media.

Mitchell played the Klingons Kol, Kol-Sha and Tenavik, as well as Aurellio, on “Star Trek: Discovery” and voiced several other characters in the episode “Star Trek: Lower Decks.”

He played the father of superhero Carol Danvers in “Captain Marvel.” He was also known for portraying Eric Green in the TV series “Jericho,” Joshua Dodd in the TV series “Nancy Drew,” a hockey player in the movie “Miracle,” and has appeared in many other films and television series.

Mitchell lived in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Susan May Pratt, and their children. He was born in Toronto on November 25, 1974, to Diane and David Mitchell.

Mitchell was diagnosed with ALS in 2018, according to a statement posted on social media in August. She revealed her diagnosis in a 2020 interview with People Magazine, saying that from the moment she found out, “It was like I was watching that scene where someone is told they have a terminal illness.” “It was just complete disbelief, a shock,” she added.

Mitchell said he focused on spending more time with his family and refused to star in a television series that would require returning to Canada. Speaking to People, he said that the producers of the “Nancy Drew” series compensated for his illness by using stuntmen when necessary. She added that other roles were created for her that allowed her to settle in.

“This disease is absolutely terrible,” Mitchell said in a post accompanying a photo of herself watching the sunset on the beach in a wheelchair last year. “Despite all the pain, there is so much to be thankful for,” he added.

According to the family statement, Mitchell is survived by his wife, children Lilah and Kallum, parents and other family members.
