Lilyan Chauvin Passes Away

Lilyan Chauvin, veteran film and television actress, passed away on Thursday, June 26 in Studio City, California.

As reported by, the actress known to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fans as Vedek Yassim (Rocks and Shoals) succumbed after a forty-year battle with breast cancer. Congestive heart disease also contributed to her death.

Chauvin was born August 6, 1925 in Paris, France. On her twenty-first birthday, she moved to New York and began to appear in New York television productions. From New York, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career.

With a career spanning nearly six decades, Chauvin appeared in over one hundred and twenty television and film appearances, including shows and movies such as: Baa Baa Black Sheep, Frasier, The Young and the Restless, Falcon Crest, Silent Night, Deadly Night, Private Benjamin, Catch Me If You Can, Yours, Mine and Ours, Funny Lady and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Her guest appearance on Baa Baa Black Sheep garnered her an Emmy Award nomination and she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her work on an episode of The Young and the Restless soap opera.

Chauvin was also a writer, director, acting and directing coast. She was the creator, showrunner and host of the instructional series Hollywood Structured, a guide to show business careers which explored new facets of the industry each week through interviews with top professionals.

A memorial service will be held for Chauvin on Saturday, August 16th at 11 A.M. at the Director's Guild of America.

Re: Lilyan Chauvin Passes Away

This is an actor whose name I should have known better. Her face is as distinct as her roles, even if most were not recurring characters. A recurring role I would have enjoyed was Vedek Yasim. She does stick out in your mind. A very strong character who I wished we had seen more of. I was as shocked as the characters when Yissim hung herself on the DS9 Promenade.

I followed that link to Miss Chauvin's blogspot and her influence in the acting world was far more pronounced than I had any idea of. I wonder who we know that learned acting skills under her tutelage?

And in the way our differences combine to create meaning and beauty. Spock's reply, _Is There in Truth No Beauty?_
