R.I.P. JIM SIEDOW: 1920-2003

By Film Threat Staff | November 25, 2003

We just caught wind of some very bad news. Jim Siedow, better known as Drayton Sawyer in the first two Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies recently passed away at his home from a “long-term illness.”
Tobe Hooper had this to say about the actor – “We’ve lost a great artist and my heartfelt sympathies go to his family. He was an extraordinarily unique talent. Chameleon-like truly, and his Shakespearan work for the stage was truly fantasticâ. I’m at a loss for words. What people don’t realize is that he was a wonderful comedian, a very funny and extremely kind man. Definitely the real deal.”
