Astin appeared in many films and television shows but is mostly known for his role as the father, Gomez Addams on ‘The Addams Family’ original series. Never had a family been so blissfully dysfunctional as The Addams Family’. Gomez’s strange behaviour was only outdone for the love he had for his family.

What happened to:

After The Addams Family series ended Astin continued to have a successful career, appearing regularly on tv shows, films and even theatre. In an Baltimore Examiner interview about playing the role of Edgar Allen Poe in Edgar Allan Poe: Once Upon a Midnight, Astin said of his acting experience:
“We all struggle, and I had plenty of that, but I’ve had a great time. I’ve done hundreds of TV shows and 30 to 40 movies, and I love acting. I’m very happy having done the Poe. That’s been really terrific.”
