Baku, March 11, AZERTAC
Actor Emilio Delgado, who appeared on Sesame Street for more than four decades, has died at the age of 81, according to BBC.
Delgado was a presence in children's lives for 45 years, playing the fix-it shop owner Luis on the long-running series.
His wife, Carol Delgado, confirmed he had died from the blood cancer multiple myeloma, which he had been battling since 2020, at their home in New York.
In a statement, producers said he was a "beloved member of the Sesame family".
Delgado, who was Mexican-American, joined the show at a time when there were few ordinary Latino characters on TV.
