Brad Johnson early life.

Brad Johnson, an actor, died in February as a result of COVID-19 problems. Many people remember him from Steven Spielberg’s 1989 fantasy-drama Always, in which he and Richard Dreyfuss compete for Holly Hunter’s love. (Unfortunately for Richard, he is a ghost.) Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, Johnson was a regular on television and in cable movies, and he co-starred in the Left Behind series. He was 62 years old at the time.

Johnson, who was born in Tucson, Arizona, in 1959, began his professional rodeo career in 1984, when he was spotted by a casting director looking for cowboys to act in a beer commercial. Before he began acting, he worked as the Marlboro Man and modeled for Calvin Klein. His first appearance was in an episode of the CBS serial opera Dallas in 1986.

In 1989, Johnson landed the role of Ted Baker in Always, playing with Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfuss in Steven Spielberg’s remake of Victor Fleming’s 1943 film A Guy Named Joe. Throughout the 1990s, his major break led to other possibilities in cinema and television, including 1991’s Flight of the Intruder (1991), the 1997 TNT miniseries Rough Riders, and three Left Behind films in which he played protagonist Rayford Steele.

In 1993, he got the role of Ned Blessing in the miniseries Ned Blessing: The Story of My Life and Times, which he returned in 1995’s Lone Justice 2 and 1996’s Lone Justice: Showdown at Plum Creek.

Johnson landed a recurring role as pediatrician Dominick O’Malley on the serial opera Melrose Place in 1996, and went on to play Maj. Matthew Quentin Shepherd on the syndicated adventure series Soldier of Fortune, Inc.

Outside of performing, Johnson refurbished ancient Winchester Model 1886 guns before selling ranch real estate in North Texas. He is survived by his wife, Laurie, and their children Shane, Bellamy, Rachel, Eliana, Eden, Rebekah, Annabeth, and William.

Brad Johnson: Release in 2000.

Johnson co-starred with Kirk Cameron in Left Behind: The Movie, which went from direct-to-video to theatrical release in 2000. The series was based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins’ end-of-the-world novels aimed at the Christian market. Though it was not the blockbuster hit that several faith-based films that came after it were, it was nevertheless revolutionary and left a legacy for reboots and spin-offs.
