Max Wright Star of Alf Has Passed Away

Who will keep an eye on Alf now?

Max Wright is one of the most beloved TV dads. Performing as Will Tanner, Wright was one of the central characters on the series, Alf. Between his wholesome charm and humour, he made for the perfect contrast to the puppeteered alien life form that moved into his attic and continuously tried to eat his cat.

Wright was diagnosed with lymphoma in 1995 and battled with cancer for the remainder of his life. On Wednesday, June 26, Wright passed away in his home in Hermosa Beach, California. He is survived by two children.
