Benedict also acted in "Aliens" and the long-running UK series "Emmerdale."
His "Emmerdale" co-star Vicki Michelle paid tribute in a tweet.

Pep Guardiola's mother dies after contracting coronavirus
The mother of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has died after contracting coronavirus, the club confirmed on Monday.
On its official Twitter account, City said that Dolors Sala Carrió, 82, had passed away near Barcelona, Spain.
"Everyone associated with the club sends their most heartfelt sympathy at this most distressing time to Pep, his family and all their friends," read a succeeding tweet.
Guardiola had previously donated €1 million ($1.08 million) to the fight against the virus, helping fund the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation and the Medical College of Barcelona.
The College said the donation would go towards the purchase and supply of medical and protective equipment for doctors fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
There have been 135,032 confirmed cases in Spain and 13,055 deaths, according to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University.
Guardiola is considered one of the best managers in the history of the game and previously said he could not have imagined a better upbringing.
"I think it's impossible to have lived a better childhood, to have been a happier little boy than I was," he told BBC Sport in October 2018.
"We were not a wealthy family. We were normal people, more poor than rich, in a little town, and every day I was in the streets with no traffic lights, no cars, always playing, bicycling, football, basketball, tennis, pool.
"I remember absolutely that. I would wake up, go out to the street, then school, then back out on the street until mum said: "OK it's time to have dinner and come back home."
Cross city rivals Manchester United tweeted its support to Guardiola shortly after City had announced the news.
"Everyone at Manchester United is saddened to hear this terrible news. We send our heartfelt condolences to Pep and his family. #ACityUnited," read a Twitter post.
Premier League team Chelsea also sent its "deepest condolences to Pep Guardiola and his family."
Sergio Rossi, 'master' Italian shoe designer, dies of coronavirus complications at 84
A source at the hospital, which is located in Italy's Emilia-Romagna region, confirmed Rossi's death to CNN on Saturday, but wouldn't disclose any further details regarding Rossi's stay at the hospital, his medical history or background, nor the exact date and time of his death.
More than 14,600 people have died of Covid-19 in Italy, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University -- the highest death count for any country. Italy, which is four weeks into a nationwide lockdown as part of attempts to curb the spread of Covid-19, has confirmed nearly 120,000 cases of the virus.
Renowned as a ground-breaking shoe designer, Rossi was popular among various high-end models and celebrities including Adriana Lima, Rihanna, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift.
In a statement issued to Rossi's official Instagram account, Riccardo Sciutto, the CEO for Sergio Rossi Group, paid homage to Rossi.
"Sergio Rossi was a master, and it is my great honor to have met him and gotten to present him the archive earlier this year. His vision and approach will remain our guide in the growth of the brand and the business," Sciutto said.
"He loved women and was able to capture a woman's femininity in a unique way, creating the perfect extension of a woman's leg through his shoes. Our long and glorious history started from his incredible vision and we'll remember his creativity forever," Sciutto added.
In March, Rossi's company announced on Instagram that it would be donating 100,000 Euros ($108,000) to finance the fight against coronavirus, while also pledging 100 percent of online sales to the cause.
"We want to be part of the rebirth of Italy, which is why Sergio Rossi chooses to take concrete action by supporting the hospital ASST Fatebenefratelli Sacco in Milan with a donation of €100,000 and by launching a challenge to all women who have loved wearing our collections over the years. From the 14th to the 20th of March, 100% of the proceeds made on SergioRossi.com will be donated to support the fight against Covid--19," the company said.
Rossi is survived by his son, Gianvito Rossi, who posted a tribute to his late father, calling him "Maestro" via the Instagram account of his own shoe brand.
Dougherty Probate Court Judge Nancy Stephenson dies following coronavirus diagnosis
ALBANY — Dougherty County Probate Judge Nancy Stephenson, 63, of Albany died Wednesday at her home in Albany from cardiac issues complicated by COVID-19.
Stephenson recently tested positive for the virus and succumbed to complications associated with it on Wednesday. Private family graveside services are planned. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date at Albany First United Methodist Church.
Stephenson’s husband, Dougherty County State Court Judge John Stephenson, has also tested positive for the virus and is self-quarantined at home, Holder said.
A native of Tifton, Nancy Stephenson was the fifth of six children of Dr. William T. Smith and Cecilia Travis Smith. She was born on April 28, 1956, attending public schools in Tift County. She attended the University of Georgia and the University of Georgia School of Law and was very proud to be a “Double Dawg.” Upon receiving her juris doctor degree in 1981, she briefly worked for a legal publishing company in Atlanta before moving to Albany, where two of her brothers had established medical practices.
Judge Stephenson started her legal career in Albany as a staff attorney for Georgia Legal Services before moving to private practice with John Salter and Walter Kelley. She later became the first full-time female assistant district attorney for the Dougherty Judicial Circuit. In 1992, she discovered her true calling in life, running for and being elected Probate judge of Dougherty County, a position she has held without opposition for 27 years.
Judge Stephenson was a member of Albany First United Methodist Church and a regular member of the New Horizons Sunday School Class. She was a member of Mended Hearts and The Albany Town Committee of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America. She served on numerous local civic boards over the past 30 years.
Survivors include her husband of 33 years, Judge John M. Stephenson; two sons, John Mark Stephenson Jr. of Portland, Ore., and William Harry Stephenson of New York City; her siblings, Dr. Bruce Alexander Smith of Lake Oconee, Ga., Dr. Livingston Travis Smith of Lutz, Fla., Dr. Christopher Campbell Smith of Albany, and Dr. Cecilia McKay of Portland, Ore.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to a favorite charity, The Maggie Joe Hogg Alzheimer Care Center, or to Albany First United Methodist Church. Because Judge John Stephenson also tested positive for COVID-19, he will not be able to receive visitors at this time. Kimbrell-Stern Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
Stephenson died only three days after Dougherty County Superior Court Judge Victoria Darrisaw issued an order closing the county’s courthouse. Albany has been identified as one of the nation’s “hot spots” for the virus.
Adam Schlesinger, Fountains of Wayne singer, dead at 52 from Covid-19
Adam Schlesinger, the co-founder of pop-rock band Fountains of Wayne and an Oscar-nominated songwriter, has died from complications related to coronavirus. He was 52.
"As many of you are aware, Adam had been hospitalized with Covid-19 and although he had been making some small improvements over the last few days, Adam's condition was critical and he was ultimately unable to recover from Covid-19 complications," read a statement from the band's attorney, provided to CNN. "He was truly a prolific talent and even more so, a loving and devoted father, son and friend."
It added: "We are terribly sorry to convey this loss."
Schlesinger's band, which was co-founded with Chris Collingwood, was best known for its 2003 hit "Stacy's Mom," a humorous track about a young boy who has a crush on his friend's mother. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award.
But Schlesinger had success before that as a songwriter. He co-wrote the title track to the 1996 Tom Hanks film "That Thing You Do," and received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for his work.
After success with Fountains of Wayne, Schlesinger continued to branch out, earning Tony nominations for his work on the musical "Cry-Baby" and numerous Emmy nominations for other work, which included collaborations with Stephen Colbert and "Sesame Street."
He won an Emmy last year for a song he co-wrote for CW's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," a show for which he wrote more than 100 songs and earned several nominations over the years.
Schlesinger was hospitalized this week.
A statement from his family, released by Collingwood via Twitter, confirmed Schlesinger was diagnosed with Covid-19. Schlesinger was put on a ventilator and sedated "to facilitate his recovery."
"He is receiving excellent care, his condition is improving and we are cautiously optimistic," the statement said. "His family appreciates all of the love and support."
News of his illness prompted an outpouring of well wishes from the music industry and beyond, as did word of his passing.
"I am grasping for the right words. My dear friend Adam Schlesinger has passed away from Covid-19," wrote Dashboard Confessional singer Chris Carrabba on Twitter. "I knew him best as a mentor, and a friend."
He added: "We must take this seriously. People are sick and dying. It is hard to stay locked indoors but lives will be saved. Take care of each other. Rest In Peace, my dear friend."
Schlesinger was writing the lyrics and music for a new theater production with comedian Sarah Silverman at the time of his death, the attorney's statement added.
Schlesinger was survived by his two daughters, Sadie and Claire, his life partner Alexis Morley, his parents Barbara and Stephen Schlesinger and his sister Lauren, according to the statement.
Andrew Jack, 'Star Wars' actor, dies from Covid-19
Andrew Jack, a British actor and dialect coach who had roles in a number of "Star Wars" movies, has died aged 76 after contracting Covid-19, his agent has said.
He also worked as a vocal coach on a number of blockbuster movie franchises, including "Guardians of the Galaxy," "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Avengers."
Jack's agent, Jill McCullough, said in a statement that he died on Tuesday in a hospital in Surrey, England, as a result of the coronavirus.
"Andrew lived on one of the oldest working houseboats on the Thames, he was fiercely independent but madly in love with his wife, also a dialect coach, Gabrielle Rogers," McCullough said.
"Tragically she is stuck in quarantine in Australia, having just flown in from New Zealand last week. She was unable to see or talk to him at the end of his life and there is a chance a funeral may not be held."
"He was still working full pelt, currently coaching on the new Batman," McCullough added, referring to "The Batman," which is set for release in 2021. "Dialect coaching isn't just about being good at accents -- you need to make your actors feel safe and confident -- and Andrew's actors adored him."
Jack had a long-running association with the "Star Wars" movies and had roles both in front of and behind the camera. He also had voice parts, including as Moloch in "Solo: A Star Wars Story."
American actor Sean Astin, who worked with Jack on "The Lord of the Rings" movies, paid tribute to him on Twitter, saying that he "made a mean curry" and "was powerful & gentle in equal measure."
"Andrew Jack loved a unique theory of gravity, that we are all being pushed down, instead of pulled down. We loved Andrew Jack," he added.
Producer Christopher Miller, executive producer of "Solo: A Star Wars Story," tweeted: "Andrew Jack was the dialect coach on SOLO, and a kind and thoughtful man. We asked him to teach Alden to speak Shyriiwook, and I'll always remember listening to them gargle-roar at each other back and forth."
CNN's Max Ramsay contributed to this report.

Father of former Falcons QB Bobby Hebert dies from coronavirus
The father of former New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Bobby Hebert Jr. died Saturday of complications from the coronavirus, the family announced. Bobby Hebert Sr. was 81.
Hebert Sr. was a colon cancer survivor who had multiple strokes and had open heart surgery for a birth defect.
Hebert Jr., who works for WWL Radio in New Orleans, discussed his father's battle with the virus on a recent radio appearance, breaking down in tears as he spoke.
"You can be tough and the virus can still overwhelm you," Hebert Jr. said on air, according to ESPN. He called coronavirus "an unseen enemy."
Hebert Jr.'s son T-Bob, a former center and guard on the LSU football team from 2008-11, honored his grandfather via Twitter on Saturday.
"... He is the wisest, kindest, and most tactful person I have ever known," T-Bob Hebert wrote. "He passed this morning and I love him and I will miss him."
Hebert Jr. played seven seasons with the Saints (1985-92) and four more with the Atlanta Falcons (1993-96). He missed the entire 1990 season due to a contract dispute. He started 100 of the 118 games he played, throwing for 21,683 yards and 135 touchdowns with 124 interceptions.
