Actor Robert Guillaume, the voice behind the character "Rafiki" in popular Disney hit "The Lion King", has died. Guillaume eventually took classes at St. Louis University and St. Louis' Washington University, where he studied singing, philosophy and Shakespeare.

Guillaume, a Tony nominee for a 1977 revival of Guys and Dolls, performed on Broadway numerous times throughout his long career. It was a role he would reprise at The Muny. But he became a household name thanks to his role as Benson on the ABC series "Soap", a primetime spoof of daytime drama.

He became the first black actor to win that award. The character was later spun-off on his own eponymous sitcom, which ran from 1979 through 1986, earning Guillaume a total of five Emmy nominations.

Aside from Benson and his numerous roles on TV and stage, Guillaume played Isaac Jaffe on "Sports Night", a show based loosely on ESPN. From the inspirational high school classic that started it all, Lean On Me, starring Morgan Freeman, Robert Guillaume, Beverly Todd, Michael Beach, and Ethan Phillips. "I hated that idea altogether, because I knew that dignity did not make people laugh". He treasured his role as Rafiki. At the same time, he tried to avoid falling into yet another stereotypical trap: "that awful term that you're either a buffoon if you're black, or you play it with 'dignity, ' " Guillaume once said.
