Sachs also played Admiral Saul Karath in Knights of the Old Republic, in addition to numerous other roles in games, film, and television. He was 61.

"Our thoughts are with Robin's family and friends during this difficult time, and we thank him for bringing Zaeed to life in the way that only Robin could," BioWare said in a statement.

No cause of death was mentioned, though a post on Sachs' website described his passing as "sudden and unexpected."

Outside of gaming, Sachs played roles in Galaxy Quest, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ocean's 11, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
