Marc Gilpin, Jaws 2 Actor and Brother of Frasier Star Dies at 56
Marc Gilpin, who played the younger son of Roy Scheider’s Police Chief Martin Brody in the 1978 sequel Jaws 2, has died at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer.
Gilpin’s older sister, Frasier actress Peri Gilpin, announced his death on Twitter. “My dear brother Marc passed away yesterday,” she wrote. “He was a gentle soul and a loving son, brother, husband, and father. We will miss him so much.”
Gilpin was born in Dallas, Texas, in 1967. He began his acting career at a young age, appearing in the television series CHiPs and Fantasy Island. He landed the role of Seana Brody in Jaws 2 after beating out hundreds of other young boys.
After Jaws 2, Gilpin appeared in several other films and television shows, including Silver Spoons, China Beach, and She’s Out of Control. He later retired from acting and became a software engineer.
Gilpin is survived by his wife, two children, and his sister.
