Terrence O’Hara has been a prolific director, working on dozens of shows since the late 1980’s. He’s even done some shows for the Whedonverse.
O’Hara died last week of cancer at the age of 76. His daughter, Maddie, told Deadline: “I never thought I’d be writing those words–it’s surreal. I’ve always imagined him walking down me down the aisle, watching his grandkids grow up, and getting old at the lake with my mom. But cancers a bitch, and his life was cut too short,”
She also said “He’s been quietly battling for the past 5 years, this whole time, directing, working, fighting, and smiling through it. He was famous for his infectious laugh, his noisy ass sneeze, his wild sailor mouth on set, his incredible, thoughtful, creative, and brilliant mind…I could go on.”

Between 2002 and 2004, he directed six episodes of Angel including “Sleep Tight” from season three, “Deep Down” which opened season four, and “Why We Fight” which recalled Angel and Spike’s adventures in World War II.
He also directed the Dollhouse episode, “The Hollow Men”.
O’Hara has also directed episodes for Smallville, Sons of Anarchy, NCIS, The Shield, Grimm, Heroes and CSI.
