If you start watching this clip at the 4:11 point it's a scene with Matthew (Billy Clyde Tuggle) and his wife Christine who I never knew was on AMC from 1984. They got married in 1983.

Great actor. Sad news. Thanks for posting.

Billy Clyde Tuggle was a well-known character from the heyday of All My Children.
And he also appeared in the online version last year.

Edit to add: It's awesome that he and Christine Baranski were married 30 years!

so sad. What a lovely man... I adored working with him last year. So kind.


Oh wow, Matthew Cowles met his wife actress Christine Baranski
when he offered her a ride on his motorcycle after a party!
(How very Bope-like!)

May he RIP. :'(

His time on AMC was before my time but when I heard he was going to be on the reboot. I watched as many Billy Clyde Tuggle scenes as I could on YT. Such an amazing actor.

1998 New York Times interview with Matthew Cowles about a play he wrote,
that was being performed in Waterbury, Connecticut.
He lived in Bethlehem, Connecticut.
