BREAKING NEWS: Friend Says Andy Griffith Has Died
Former UNC President Bill Friday says Andy Griffith died this morning in Dare County. Friday, who is a close friend of the actor, confirmed that to WITN News.

Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie confirms to WITN News that an ambulance went to Andy Griffith's home at 7 a.m. this morning.

The sheriff says he is checking to get more information on the condition of the person who the ambulance was called for.

The 86-year-old Griffith lives on Roanoke Island, not far from the Lost Colony, a play he performed in right after high school.

Griffith was born in Mount Airy, and is most known for his role as "Andy Taylor" from 1960 to 1968.

I still think the movie "A face in the crowd" was his best work.

Never was a huge fan of his TV shows, I think I might have missed that boat by a couple years but he was a very good actor.

RIP

I'm aware of his existence, but he was before my time. Says a lot about his longevity. RIP.

What a sad, sad day. I bet he won't get near the media time of other celebs that die of drugs and what not.


RIP Mr. Griffith.

This is the second person to die, this year, from the Andy Griffith Show. George "Goober" Lindsay died May 6th.

Elia Kazan once said that Andy Griffith was the 2nd most naturally talented actor he ever worked with.

#1?

Marlon Brando.

He was a stand-up comic early on also, his 'hick' take on Romeo and Juliet was hilarious.

He was a good guitar player also.

Very talented guy.

Another little bit of trivia, Don Knotts originally auditioned for the part of Floyd the barber I think it was, and he knew he wasn't right for it. So he took Andy to the side and asked, "Do you have a sidekick yet?"

And the rest, as they say, is history.
