Mike Nicholas (Diane Sawyer’s husband) dies at 83 from a heart attack

Celebrated director Mike Nicholas, a luminary of American film and theater, died suddenly on Wednesday of a heart attack aged 83.
The director brought fierce wit, caustic social commentary and wicked absurdity to classics such as The Graduate, The Birdcage, Angels in America and for the stage, Monty Python’s Spamalot, in a career that spanned six decades.
His directorial golden touch led him to be one of only 12 people to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and numerous Tony Awards.
Nichols was married for more than 25 years to TV news anchor Diane Sawyer whom he described as bringing him ‘ultimate happiness’.

Before meeting Sawyer, Nichols was first married to Patricia Scott from 1957 to 1960.
He went on to wed Margo Callas from 1963 to 1974 and had one daughter, Daisy Nichols. He then married Annabel Davis-Goff and had two children, Max Nichols and Jenny Nichols.
He is survived by his wife, three children and four grandchildren
