Born and raised in Chicago, Braugher, a Stanford University and Juilliard alum, recently graced the screen in “She Said,” a drama recounting the investigative journalism that exposed Harvey Weinstein and triggered the #MeToo movement. His portrayal of Dean Baquet, the Executive Editor of The New York Times, showcased his incredible talent.

Braugher’s next venture was set to be the Netflix show “Residence,” but fate had other plans. He concluded his run in Paramount+’s “The Good Fight,” adding another remarkable character, Ri’Chard Lane, to his repertoire.

For eight seasons, Braugher charmed audiences as Captain Ray Holt in the hit comedy series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” earning two Critics Choice Awards and four Emmy nominations. His versatility shone in the TNT series “Men of a Certain Age,” where he received Emmy nods for his role as an anxiety-stricken diabetic dad.

Beyond television, Braugher made a mark in the film industry with roles in “Salt,” “Passengers,” and “The Mist.” His voice even graced the animated feature “Spirit Untamed” in 2021.

The actor’s stage presence was equally impressive, with performances at the New York Shakespeare Festival and Joseph Papp’s Public Theater. Braugher’s involvement in the Classical Theatre of Harlem, where he served on the board, showcased his commitment to the arts.

In addition to his artistic achievements, Braugher is survived by his wife of 32 years, Brabson, and their three sons, Michael, Isaiah, and John Wesley. His legacy lives on through the impact he made on the entertainment industry and the hearts of those who admired his work.

In lieu of flowers, Braugher’s family encourages donations to the Classical Theatre of Harlem, a cause close to the late actor’s heart. As we mourn the loss of André Braugher, we celebrate the indelible mark he left on the world of entertainment.
