Richard Bull passed away on Monday at the age of 89. Alison Angrim, who played his daughter in Little House on the Prairie, found him at the Motion Picture Fund Campus in Calabasas, California.
 
Bull is most known as Nels Oleson in Little House on the Prairie, which aired from 1974 to 1983. Even after the show ended, networks continued to air reruns of the series for decades. The series starred Michael Landon, Charles Ingalls, and Melissa Gilbert.
 
On Monday, Gilbert posted a photo of a young Richard Bull with the caption, "This man will be missed. Goodbye Richard working with you was such a joy but nearly as joyful as being your friend."
 
Bull began his stage career at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. But he could not be limited by the stage, and starred in many TV shows and films throughout his career, including the 1968 version of The Thomas Crown AffairMission Impossible, and The Streets of San Francisco.
 
He is survived by his wife of 66 years, actress Barbara Collentine. Collentine had a small role in Little House on the Prairie, but that was not where the couple first met. They met in Chicago and married in 1948. Both pursued acting careers in New York before settling down in California.
