Soap star and acting coach Gene Bua - who helped train the likes of Brad Pitt, Drew Barrymore and Katey Sagal at his Burbank school - died Saturday after a 13-year battle with Parkinson's disease. The Glendale resident was 72. Bua is survived by his wife and creative partner, Toni Bull Bua, and his son, granddaughter and brother. He and Bull Bua met nearly 50 years ago on the set of CBS's long-running soap opera, “Love of Life,” where they fell in love on and off screen. “He taught me everything - he taught me how to sing, he taught me how to play baseball, he taught me how to marathon run, he taught me Shakespeare, he taught me how to feel,” Bull Bua said Tuesday.

Compounding the Parkinson's disease, Bua continues to endure a back injury, making his once-a-week, two-hour stage performances grueling.
