    I just realised as well that with Una Stubbs dying, both of Peter Gilmore’s wives have now died within months of each other (Anne Stallybrass)

    Just seen it. Sad news indeed. RIP Good-bye Aunt Sally

    Norman Lloyd

    RIP. I think he was as famous for working on the production/associate producer side of things as much as the acting. Produced a fair amount of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. i can remember watching one made in 1957 where he played a detective and I’d had never have guessed he had lived another 64 years! So the oldest actor of the golden age of Hollywood is gone.

    The 100 Club

    I was mistaken - from Drol's post I thought he was meaning that this centenarian had in fact died - Soulages has therefore 'unceased' to be..

    The 100 Club

    I'm not French Drol. I picked my Deathlist name from the main character's name in 'The Dark Tower' written by Stephen King. I am from that island in the North Atlantic known as the UK. Aren't I lucky? ps - I've sadly never heard of Pierre Soulages and only now am aware of him after he has 'ceased to be'.

    The 100 Club

    I'm sure most of you are aware but for those that aren't, veteran character actor Geoffrey Chater is 100 today.

    Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Either that's Prince Philip under there or with the hat and the umbrellas could it be Oswald Cobblepot?

    Regarding Ronald Pickup, I just saw his first role was in Dr Who's The Reign of Terror playing the physician. Also one of the growing number of cast members to depart who were in Zulu Dawn. Very impressive list of credits all round really. RIP

    Christopher Plummer

    RIP to an acting legend. It always surprises me when famous people die who were busy, appeared healthy into their 90s, and stayed relevant right up to the point they, err, do die. Kind of like Christopher Lee. I thought Chris Plummer would have been one of those going in his late 90s. Apart from Julie Andrews was he the last surviving adult cast member of The Sound Of Music? I know he did outlive 2 of the Van Trapp child actors.

    Captain Tom Moore

    RIP to a decent bloke. I thought when he had pneumonia that he didn’t have too long left but 100 is a great age and he will be well remembered.

    48. Tom Baker

    What with Covid being a thing since March 2020, I am assuming this photo precedes this time (the lack of social distancing would be frowned upon especially with an octogenarian in attendance?) I also have read that Big Finish sometimes record their product years in advance of them being released/ having a press release so the photo isn't as helpful in that regard.

    The Stars Of B-cinema

    Yep - she’d not been well for a long time really so her death while sad/surprising wasn’t too unexpected and 89 is not a bad age at all really considering. End of an era really with Hammer though - all the prolific producers, directors, scriptwriters and stars now gone from the late 1950s to early 1970s Golden Age.
