Geoffrey Scott, an actor known for his roles in “Dynasty” and 2003’s “Hulk,” has died at age 79.

The star’s wife, Cheri, confirmed his passing to Fox News on Tuesday.

Scott died Feb. 23 in Broomfield, Colo., after battling Parkinson’s disease.

“He loved to ski and that’s why he spent his last years in Colorado,” Cheri shared. “His career enabled him to do a lot of outdoor sports. That’s what he loved.”

The athleticism was fitting, as Scott was known for playing Mark Jennings, a tennis pro, on “Dynasty” from 1982-1984, per IMDb.

Perhaps his best-known role was playing the president in Ang Lee’s “Hulk,” which was also his final role.

His first Hollywood role was a bit part on “General Hospital” before moving on to appear in several high-profile television shows.
