Michael Nader, ‘Dynasty’ and ‘All My Children’ Actor, Dies at 76

Dynasty, All My Children’s Michael Nader dies just days after cancer diagnosis

Micahel Nader, who starred as Dex Dexter on Dynasty throughout the 1980s, has died just days after being diagnosed with untreatable cancer, his wife has said.

Key points:

  • Michael Nader was best known for roles in Dynasty and All My Children
  • The actor died just days after being diagnosed with untreatable cancer
  •  His wife says he adored his fans, and responded to every piece of fanmail he received

He was 76.

Nader was a mainstay on US soap operas in the 80s and 90s, having also held a decade-long presence on the set of daytime soap All My Children as leading man Dimitri Marick.

His character on that program was so popular that his axing in 1999 led to a fan revolt that demanded his return.

However, the return was short-lived and he was let go after being arrested for selling cocaine to an undercover police officer in 2001.

“With heavy heart, I’m sharing the news of the passing of my beloved, Michael,” Nader’s wife, Jodi Lister, said in a statement to Michael Fairman TV. “We had 18 wonderful years together with the many dogs we fostered and adopted. Recently, Michael was so thrilled to reconnect with his friends from the cast of Dynasty during Emma Samm’s virtual event to help raise funds for Long-Covid research. He was a beautiful and fascinating man with many talents and skills. I will miss him forever.”

Nader was a big and popular presence on Dynasty, which ran from 1981 to 1989. Alexis (Joan Collins) considered Dex the second-greatest love of her life, behind Blake Carrington (John Forsythe), of course.

Born in Missouri, Nader began his acting career in the ’60s after moving to California with his mother. He had a recurring part on the TV show Gidget in 1965 before scoring his first soap job on As The World Turns in 1975. He played Kevin Thompson.

Nader was married three times, first to Robin Weiss, with whom he had his daughter Lindsay, then to Beth Windsor. Nader and Lister were married for 18 years leading up to his death.

Nader is survived by Lister, daughter Lindsay and granddaughter Juniper.
