Hugh seemed like a super nice guy. I am really curious to find out if Kathryn divorced him due to complications with his stroke or were there other things going on within the marriage. I know she wrote a book not long ago..I wonder if that mentions anything about it.

HughsgirlAug 5, 2010

Co-stars of Hugh`s said that he was even nicer then his character Ward. He and Barbara I hear was particularly close friends.
