CAGNEY and LACEY
Mark Slade was in the episode called ‘Stress’ in the Cagney and Lacey series – season 4, episode 15. Sharon Gless, Tyne Daly and Kohn Karlen were the principal stars throughout the series. Mark played a character called Martin Gelband, a victim of a serial attacker who stabbed people randomly and who were then too afraid to testify
After the stabbing Mark was visited in hospital by Cagney and Lacey and agreed to give evidence.
He was found murdered in the street, off-screen, towards the end of the episode.
This is thought to have been his last on-screen performance before Mark Slade concentrated on his writing and art projects.
