William Christopher, the actor who played Father Francis Mulcahy for 11 seasons on M*A*S*H in the 1970s and ’80s, died New Year’s Eve. He was 84.
In the series, Mulcahy was a Catholic priest, a former amateur boxer, and a chaplain assigned to M*A*S*H (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) Unit No. 4077 during the Korean War.
Christopher ensured the role was almost always handled with respect and restraint.
