‘Magnum, P.I.’ actor Roger E. Mosley dead at 83. He portrayed helicopter pilot ‘T.C.’ alongside Tom Selleck in ‘Magnum, P.I.’
Roger E. Mosley, the veteran actor known for his role as Theodore “T.C.” Calvin in “Magnum, P.I.” died on Sunday morning, according to a Facebook post shared by his daughter, Ch-a. He was 83.
Mosley reportedly died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, following injuries sustained from a car collision on Aug. 4 that left him “paralyzed from the shoulders down.”
“He was surrounded by family as he transcended peacefully,” Ch-a Mosley wrote online. “We could never mourn such an amazing man.”
She added: “He would HATE any crying done in his name. It is time to celebrate the legacy he left for us all. I love you daddy. You loved me too.
“My heart is heavy but I am strong. I will care for mommy, your love of almost 60 years. You raised me well and she is in good hands. Rest easy.”
Fox News Digital has contacted Mosley’s representatives for comment.
Days ago, she posted that Mosley was involved “in a major car accident that has left him paralyzed from the shoulders down.” She wrote that her father was “in a critical condition but fighting hard” and constantly accompanied by family and friends.
In an updated post on Saturday, Ch-a noted that her father found joy in the little things, and carried a bag of Starbucks gift cards to “give to people who’ve done good.”
She wrote that the show had “been off air since 1988 (though it remains in syndication). He still gets fan mail from his role as ‘TC.’ He’s inspired SO people on an international level and until this day they send autograph cards and things for him to sign.”
Mosley, a Los Angeles native raised in Watts, attended Jordan High School and appeared in dozens of films and television shows through decades of work in the industry.
Mosley appeared as Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin in eight seasons of the iconic 80s crime drama, opposite Tom Selleck.
“Last week my dad Roger E Mosley was involved in a major car accident that has left him paralyzed from the shoulders down,” his daughter Ch-a Mosley said on Facebook.
“He is in a critical condition but fighting hard.”
Ch-a posted the tragic update before later confirming his death to the Hollywood Reporter.
