Actor Taylor Negron Calls Presumed Johnny Lewis Victim Catherine Davis 'A Near Saint'
Actor and comedian Taylor Negron, 55, most famous for his stand-up routines and his roles on such productions as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and Nothing But Trouble, had something in common with late Sons of Anarchy Kip "Half Sack" Epps actor Johnny Lewis — they both, at different points, lived with Catherine Davis, 81, the elderly landlady whom Lewis is suspected of killing before he also died outside the suburban Los Angeles home where he was residing.
Negron spoke out about Davis, whom he called a "Hollywood legend" and "a near saint" in an editorial for XO Jane, likening her to "a kind and loving mother to so many, including me."
Cathy, as Negron called her in his letter, had provided boarding for such actors as Parker Posey, Thomas Jane, Chris Parnell and Val Kilmer. "The door was always open," Negron wrote of Davis' house, in which he lived during his early career in his 20s.
To give some insight about Davis the woman, whose name, Negron bemoans, has been lost amid Lewis's and that of Katy Perry, 28, who keeps getting mentioned due to her brief romance with Lewis several years ago, was a writer who was working on a historical biography on the life of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, William Randolph Hearst's mother.
According to Negron, who was still very close to her at the time of her death, Davis had just finished editing Chapter 6 of the book when she was killed.
