Michael Nader 'enjoyed' his work 'immensely'

Born in Los Angeles on February 19, 1945, according to IMDb, Michael Nader grew up to be a famous figure in the world of television and soap operas. Undeniably best known for his role as Dex Dexter on the original "Dynasty" from 1983 to 1989, he was also adored for his time as Dimitri Marick on "All My Children" from 1991 to 2001 and again in 2013. That's not to mention his work on other shows over the years like "The Flash," "Gidget," "Magnum, P.I.," and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

When it came to Nader's career, he talked to We Love Soaps in 2013 about returning to "All My Children," saying, "I've enjoyed myself immensely." Perhaps one of the reasons it was so fun was that he pointed out: "You know, I'm the same ham I've always been..." Beyond that, in the statement that Nader's wife, Jodi Lister, released on, she noted, "Recently, Michael was so thrilled to reconnect with his friends from the cast of 'Dynasty' during Emma Samms' virtual event to help raise funds for long-COVID research." Clearly, this star adored his life, his career, and his peers as much as he was adored by his admirers.

Our condolences go out to Nader's family, friends, and fans.
