    Silent Era People

    Arguably Dames Olivia de Havilland and Vera Lynn who have both lived around 80 years after their peak fame level.

    Is it my imagination or based on the details of US astronauts above, it does appear as if astronauts have very good longevity as long as they don't meet an unfortunate occupational demise. Presumably this is largely because you had to be pretty fit and healthy to be selected as an astronaut but is there anything else at play here as most appear to make 85 plus.

    Mollie Sugden et al

    Surprised she's not older than that to be honest.

    Gianluca Vialli

    Looks better there than in other recent photos

    Joni Mitchell

    She doesn't look like someone at death's door in those photos to me.

    2. Kirk Douglas

    1. He probably won't make it. 2. He's Greek.

    2. Kirk Douglas

    I'd say Oscar Niemeyer is probably another in the genuinely famous men who lived to be over 100 (rather than men who are famous mostly for living long) but it's a short list. I wonder if there will be more in 30 years time?

    It's still quite rare for men to live to be 100 plus. I gather there's about five times as many female centurions than male. How many really famous men have lived to be over a hundred? Bob Hope, George Burns, Norman Lloyd and Kirk Douglas and that's about it. Very few famous British men who have made it over 100, Sir Nicholas Winton is about the only one I can think of and a couple of fairly obscure MPs (Ron Atkins, Bert Hazell etc). Kirk did very well to get to 103. RIP

    Kobe Bryant

    From the UK and totally disinterested in Basketball but I'd heard of him in the same way I'd heard of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson. RIP to all who died

    The 2nd Death of 2020

    No doubt involving mistletoe

    Frazer Hines

    Is Matthew Waterhouse (I assume he is still alive) really a worse actor than Bonnie Langford or Sarah Sutton?

    Clarissa Eden

    Very much the Carrie Symonds of her day.

    Olivia Newton-John

    This definitely has the feeling of her being made a Dame now before it's too late.

    Tony Britton

    Geoffrey Palmer (assuming he makes it until 1 January 2020) is a must. Such a Deathlist type person and a loveable legend. It would be a shame to ignore him in the same way that Robert Hardy (another legend of a similar vintage) was ignored.
