SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Christopher Evan Welch, the actor whose roles on New York stages led to a series of film and television roles, including a regular spot on AMC's "Rubicon," has died in Southern California.

His family said in a statement Wednesday that Welch died Dec. 2 in Santa Monica. He was 48 and had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

The Dallas-born actor won an Obie Award in 2000 for his performance in "A Streetcar Named Desire" at the New York Theatre Workshop.
