His most famous role is that of Othello in Catch My Soul (1974), screenwriter John Good and director Patrick McGoohan's rock & roll adaptation of Shakespeare's famous play. His final acting role was in Todd Haynes' Bob Dylan-inspired biopic I'm Not There in 2007. Havens passed away in 2013 at the age of 72.
