Screen Actors Guild Mourns the Loss of Activist Ricardo Montalbán

Screen Actors Guild acknowledges the passing of Ricardo Montalbán, who died January 14 at 88. Montalbán was a dedicated Screen Actors Guild member who served on the National Board (1960-71; third vice president, 1965-68 and 1969-71) and Guild committees. As a founder of Nosotros, he was an early activist for realistic portrayals of Latin characters on screen, which dovetailed with SAG’s own evolving diversity efforts. He was awarded the 1993 Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award for his work both on and off camera.
