Evans' longtime manager Phil Brock confirmed his friend and client's passing to Deadline, calling the actor a "consummate" professional" who was "passionate about his art and about giving to others. He projected his strength and humanity into his character portrayals."

Evans was best known for his roles in Terminator 2: Judgement Day as the tank driver killed by Robert Patrick's T-1000, as well as various parts in both Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.

Evans' other film credits include the 2003 remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider, What's Love Got To Do With It, and Chain Letter.

His other TV stints included ER, The Golden Girls, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Hart to Hart, The A-Team and Hill St. Blues.
