    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Miska did live with Nykänen during his last years, was like a son to him and was in the same house when Nykänen died, so I'd say he's notable enough for a mention if he's in shitty condition in ICU at age 19

    That isn't even that much. Prince Philip, Shane MacGowan, Tony Blair, Robbie Coltrane, Robert De Niro, Sharon Osbourne and Richard O'Sullivan have threads that will reach adulthood this year. How long will we have to wait for them to die?

    Films with entirely dead casts

    Some interesting mentions: A Letter for Evie (1946): This comedy film directed by Jules Dassin (1911-2008) has two alive main actors and both are centenarians. Marsha Hunt (born 1917: 103 years old) is the main actor and Norman Lloyd (born 1914: 106 years old) also has a large role in the movie. Who is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me? (1971): The only main actor alive mentioned on the wikipedia page is the main actor, Dustin Hoffman (born 1937) Saboteur (1942): The only alive main actor of this Hitchcock movie is the actor of the villain (Norman Lloyd as Frank Fry) and the villain dies in the movie. Baby Brother (1927): Cast member Lincoln Plumer died in 1928, while another cast member Mildred Kornman is still alive as of 2021. Post-60s movies with dead/one left main casts? Can't name many but here: Support Your Local Firefighter (1971): Out of the 17 actors mentioned on the wikipedia page of this western film, only one is possibly alive: Dick Curtis was born in 1928, but not much is mentioned about him on the internet. Executive Action (1973): Out of the 5 cast members in this conspiracy thriller film all are dead. And Then There Were None (1974): Only cast member alive is Elke Sommer (born 1940) Swimming to Cambodia (1987): The only actor of this film, Spalding Gray (1941-2004) is long dead. Krapp's Last Tape (2007): Harold Pinter was the only cast member. He died a year after this film was released.

    This made me wonder why there are no "X" surname threads and I realized that there actually is: Xi Jingping's surname is not Jingping, it's Xi

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

    https://www.instagram.com/p/CMxOYadMoVZ/ Tempt One, graffiti artist who has had ALS since 2003 auctioning his art to pay hospital bills. He's been mentioned on this forum a few times and I'm suprised he's still alive. According to another instagram post he now spends all of his time in a hospital bed and communicates through an eye writer tool he also uses to create art.

    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_Leroy_(actor) Philippe Leroy! Got to 90 last month. Saw him today in a 2009 episode of the Italian crime show Don Matteo starring Terence Hill. Leroy is 90 now, but already looked ancient back then. And apparently he's also still working.

    I don't recognize him (As well as many other of these celebs that aren't internationally famous, especially musicians, as I'm not a large fan of music and musicians seem to never die) but looks so rough I don't have any problem with the thread. From what I've now read from a few sources I got the picture that he's the Murray Walker of MLB?

Can't find an English version of this article but he was apparently threathening people with a knife and screamed at the people trying to help him. I read from another place that his house was full of alcohol bottles and there were a lot of opened painkiller packages on a table.
