A Thread For All The Famous People Who Lost In 2020


Recommended Posts

So 2020 has been quite a year for a number of reasons, but this is the one year that a lot of famous people died. Some would say way more than any other year. This thread can be a way for people to share tributes, post things on their behalf, pictures, videos, quotes, etc. This post can also be a way for people to list names of celebrities who they feel don't have much time left since we still have three more months until 2020 is done. If there is a name of someone I didn't list and they were a famous person that died this year, then you are more than share tributes or anything about them.

Actor Ben Cross, probably best known for the movie Chariots of Fire.  He was also in the tv remake of Dark Shadows, First Knight, and was Spock's father in the new movies.  He completely nails it as Sarek.  He finished his last movie 10 days before he died.

 

Also Diana Rigg.  She was Emma Peel in the original Avengers, was in James Bond (On Her Majesty's Secret Service), hosted Mystery on PBS, was on Game of Thrones as Olenna Tyrell and tons of other stuff.  She was so smart and funny and ferocious. 

 

I liked them both very much.  

 

Geoffrey Palmer died this week aged 93.  He was in lots and lots of British movies and tv.  One of those people who was always in it somewhere.  As Time Goes By, Butterflies, Fawlty Towers, Black Adder, Doctor Who (3 times!), Avengers (3x), Admiral in Tomorrow Never Dies.

 

Ian Holm.  He played Bilbo in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy, as well as stuff like Fifth Element, Time Bandits and Alien, and oddly enough, Chariots of Fire.  Another character actor who was in lots of stuff whether you realized he was there or not.

 

Last week,  John Sessions, who was on Whose Line is It Anyway, worked on Spitting Image, and was in some movies/tv, very good at imitating voices and improv.

 

This is getting rather depressing.  Thanks for the thread though.

Yeah no problem. I just feel this has been quite a year and I felt this thread would be more than appropriate for people to post in.
