Did you know that two actors who played “Marlboro Man” died of lung cancer?
The ‘Marlboro Man’ was a character, commonly featured from 1954 to 1999 depicted as a rugged cowboy, conceived by legendary advertising executive, Leo Burnett in 1954 to popularize filtered cigarettes (which at the time were considered feminine) of Philip Morris, the company owning Marlboro, and as a good advertising character, he built a huge fan base for the brand.
However, it turns out that the life in “Marlboro Country” was not so joyful. Namely, two of the actors who portrayed ‘Marlboro Man’ died of lung cancer, a disease caused by cigarette smoking.
Wayne McClaren (appeared in the cigarette advertisement in the year 1976 and died of lung cancer in 1992) and David McClean, who also died of lung cancer in the year 1995, were both hired as actors, and forced to smoke sometimes up to five packs of cigarettes a day for commercial filming and photoshoots for print ads. It’s no wonder that after only ten years of resigning as the character, both had passed away.
McClean’s family sued Philip Morris after his death claiming they held responsibility. Wayne McClaren lived for many years after being diagnosed lung cancer and promoted smoking-cessation campaigns.
According to the source of this article, it is said that the first owner of the company which produced Marlboro cigarettes, Phillip Morris too, died of lung cancer. However, the validity of this statement is questionable because the cause of Phillip Morris’s death was not mentioned in biographies available online. But the possibility remains there…
So, draw every smoker a lesson from this story!

Tomorrow will be the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks against the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the building of Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and when passengers attempted to take control of the fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, preventing it from reaching its intended target in Washington D.C.
Nearly 3,000 died in the attacks…
