Eminently distinguished, basso-voiced actor Percy Rodrigues used his vocal chords to great effect (and achieved his most enduring claim to fame) when he signed to narrate the famous Jaws (1975) promotional campaign -- thus striking fear and intrigue into the hearts of millions of prospective ticket buyers. Outside of this, Rodrigues' unique resumé weighed equally on television roles -- with occasional supporting roles on such series as Sanford and Benson, and guest bits on programs including Ironside, The Jeffersons, and The Fall Guy -- and film work in theatrical pictures including The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter (1968) and Come Back, Charleston Blue (1972). Rodrigues died of kidney problems at age 89 in 2007.
