Who was Andre Braugher?

Instantly recognisable for his deep voice, Braugher came to fame on the NBC drama Homicide: Life on the Street, which ran from 1992 to 1998. He won an Emmy for his portrayal of the tenacious, arrogant Detective Frank Pembleton in 1998.

But it was his performance as the deadpan Captain Raymond Holt in the hit comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine that made him most famous, appearing alongside Andy Samberg in eight seasons.

He won two Critics Choice Awards for best supporting actor in a comedy series and received four Emmy nominations for his performance as Holt, the precinct’s no-nonsense, Black and gay boss.

Born in 1962 in Chicago as the youngest of four children, Braugher studied theatre on a Stanford scholarship before attending the Juilliard School for drama.

His first film role came in 1989’s Glory when he played a Union soldier in one of the American civil war’s earliest African American regiments. The film earned three Oscars, including best supporting actor for Braugher’s co-star Denzel Washington.

In the years that followed, he played a number of roles in television films – including revivals of classic crime series Kojak – before his breakout in the critically acclaimed police drama Homicide: Life on the Street.

A 2010 article in the Guardian called Braugher’s character Detective Pembleton “the smartest, sharpest master of the art of interrogation”. He was nominated twice for an Emmy and won in 1998, his last year on the series.

Braugher won his second Emmy for the 2006 miniseries Thief, in which he starred as the leader of a heist balancing a high-stakes operation with family struggles.

Throughout his three-decade career, he was nominated for an Emmy a total of 11 times and often starred in roles circling the military and police, including his beloved role on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Other appearances included a cop providing insider info to his disgraced partner on the series Hack, an army captain on the military drama Last Resort, and a general in the sci-fi miniseries The Andromeda Strain.

In 2020, he spoke to Variety about the complexities of portraying police on television.

“I look up after all these decades of playing these characters, and I say to myself, it’s been so pervasive that I’ve been inside this storytelling, and I, too, have fallen prey to the mythology,” he said.

“Cops breaking the law to quote, ‘defend the law,’ is a real terrible slippery slope. It has given license to the breaking of law everywhere, justified it and excused it. That’s something that we’re going to have to collectively address – all cop shows.”

What was his cause of death?

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Andre’s rep Jennifer Allen said the famed actor passed away on Monday, December 11, after suffering a brief illness.

The specific illness has yet to be confirmed.

Braugher, a Chicago native and Stanford University and Juilliard graduate, is survived by his wife Ami Brabson, and their children John Wesley Braugher, Michael Braugher, and Isaiah Braugher.
