Soap Star Kamar de los Reyes Dead at 56 from Cancer

Daytime TV fans have been dealt yet another loss this week.

“One Life to Live” star Kamar de los Reyes passed away on Sunday in Los Angeles.

De los Reyes was recently diagnosed with cancer.

He’s Gone

Most of de los Reyes’ fans will remember him as Antonio Vega on the ABC daytime soap, “One Life to Live,” in which he starred from 1995 to 2009. His resume, however, goes far beyond that one show.

De los Reyes started acting in 1988 with a small role in “Salsa,” then continued to pay his bills on smaller roles in mostly “B” movies until 1994, when he landed a recurring role in “Valley of the Dolls.”

All of a sudden, he became a hot commodity, landing larger roles in hit TV shows and larger parts in movies, including “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” “Blue Bloods,” and “Salt.”

It was during that run that he also landed the role of Antonio Vega on “One Life to Live,” as well as starting his career doing voiceovers for hit video games, such as “Call of Duty: Black Ops II.”

More recently, he starred in “Sleepy Hollow” as Jobe, appearing in 13 episodes, as well as “The Rookie,” appearing in five episodes as Ryan Caradine. He also continued as the voice of Raul Menendez in the “Call of Duty” video game series.

His final credit was as Coach Montes in “All American,” appearing in seven episodes over the last two years.

In addition to his TV and movie career, he was a very successful stage actor.

He starred as Pedro Quinn in “Blade to the Heat,” an off-Broadway production as well as playing Ferdinand in “The Tempest" in the Shakespeare in the Park production.

De los Reyes’ oldest son, Caylen, is now serving in the United States Army. He is also survived by his wife and twin sons.
