Patrick Duffy became a star on ‘Dallas’ – but tragedies formed his life in a way no one can imagine

Patrick Duffy won the hearts of millions through starring as Bobby Ewing in Dallas. Then, after eight seasons, the actor suddenly disappeared, to the disappointment of many viewers – only to return one season later.

Since then, Duffy has reached tremendous heights of fame, while also creating a lovely family. Yet though his career has gone ever upwards, the 73-year-old suffered an immense tragedy when his wife, Carlyn, passed away in 2017.
