The actor who played the wise — and often wisecracking — psychiatrist on the TV series M.A.S.H has died.

Alan Arbus played Dr. Sidney Freedman on a dozen episodes of the hit series between 1973 and 1983.

Arbus didn’t begin acting until his 40s. Born in New York, he had a successful career as a fashion photographer.

After the Second World War, he started a studio with then-wife Diane Arbus. She would go on to become one of the most renowned art photographers of the 20th century.

Alan Arbus died of congestive heart failure. He was 95.
