Dick Sargent Biography
Dick Sargent (April 19, 1930 - July 8, 1994) was a American actor. He was born in Carmel, California. Although he is probably best remembered as "The Second Darrin Stephens" on the hit television show Bewitched, Sargent had been appearing in films since his debut in 1956.

When Dick York was forced to leave the Bewitched series due to health problems, Sargent stepped into the role. He'd first been offered the role in 1964 but was under contract to Universal Studios and unable to accept it, but by 1969 he was free and played Darrin until the show ended in 1972. Sargent continued to work regularly in film and made numerous guest appearance on various TV shows.

Later in life, he came out as a homosexual man and championed gay rights issues. He and his former co-star Elizabeth Montgomery, who had remained a good friend, were Grand Marshals at the Los Angeles Gay Pride day. He died not long after in Los Angeles from prostate cancer.
