    Joss Ackland

    I am aware of the British Character Actors thread but I thought it was time to set Ackland up with his own thread. He was born in 1928, so he may be one to keep an eye on. Possibly one for the 2021 DL.

    Last Survivor of The 2023 DL

    I'd say Alan Alda in 2028. Mel Brooks and Dick Cheney are also good contenders for the last survivor.

    Death By Numbers 2024

    Charles Dierkop is a unique hit for me.

    Police Woman (Round 1)

    One of my favourite tv shows Police Woman (1974-78) has all its main cast (its police team of four) still living! Who will be first to go and finally break up the team? Angie Dickinson (born 1931) Earl Holliman (born 1928) Charles Dierkop (born 1936) Ed Bernard (born 1939)

    Police Woman (Round 1)

    Well done to the two who correctly guessed Dierkop.

    First main cast member of Police Woman to die. I honestly just watched my final episode of Police Woman yesterday, with the aim to watch all the episodes whilst all four main actors were still alive. I was out by one day.

    38. Prunella Scales

    Latest update "Despite being impeccably dressed in heels and with manicured nails, Pru is noticeably frail and needs help to walk. Her fading hearing, even with a couple of aids in – she describes them as her ‘ears’ – means she struggles to follow conversation. But she now also has the detached, unfocused air of someone who has progressed to the more advanced stages of vascular dementia."

    Shannen Doherty

    New on Cameo! Maybe the committee was right to pass on her this year. She could very well see 2025. However, her inclusion on Cameo is likely for the purpose of helping pay medical costs.

    10. Robert Wagner

    Celebrated his 94th birthday with Stefanie and his wife, Jill St. John. Wagner also celebrated his 94th birthday at the Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica. There, he gave a toast to his family whilst standing up, which he posted on Instagram.

    Sir Michael Caine

    Appeared at Wednesday night's BFI festival. I'm glad I didn't pick him this year.

    Thoughts On The 2024 List

    Flack in 2024 or 2025. Wagner may very well live into 2028.

    41. Brigitte Bardot

    The DL may have jumped the gun on this one. Of course, hard to know by just her voice, but in this phone interview a couple of months ago (after her hospitalisations), her voice still sounds strong and full of life.

    French Deathlist 2024

    At this point in time, I see at least 17 hits for the French Deathlist 2024 including Badie, De Gaulle, Dumas, Morin, Le Pen, Malaurie, Chirac, Page, Pagny, Mitterrand, Fontaine, Villalonga, Vernon, Serre, Géminiani, Darrigade and Guillemin. However, some notable omissions and good possibilities for next year are: Phillippe Leroy- 93 Gerard Depardieu- 75 Leslie Caron- 92 Pierre Vernier- 92 Jean Sorel- 89 Brigitte Auber- 98 Anouk Aimée- 91 Yvonne Furneaux- 97 André Oumansky- 90 Sophie Grimaldi- 87 Pierre Richard- 89 Jacques Charrier- 87 Richard Bohringer- 81 Jacques Dutronc- 80 Jean-Pierre Castaldi- 79 Sami Frey- 86

    Of the top five this year, only Jimmy deserves to be there.

    I'd argue David Soul, we all knew Soul had been in poor health for years. With Jewison, we had no good reason to suspect he was near death.

    Expected to attend his daughter's wedding later this year!

    Alain Delon

    Given medical check-up last Saturday Statement from Delon's lawyer on outcome of medical assessment: “Mr Delon replied to all the questions of the expert doctor thus confirming that his faculties are not weakened, contrary to all the defamatory accusations that have made him an object of the media since January.” Also important to emphasise, his lawyer has not had any allegations against them by another second party, so is likely a trustworthy source. And again going back to the 2023 Christmas photos, Delon's facial features looked more like those of a 70-year-old than an 88-year-old, despite him being wheelchair bound. One of the healthiest 88-year-olds I have seen (many people at that age can no longer walk). Delon could therefore make 2025 at a pinch (we know his history of ill health complaints), but his 90th birthday, I really don't see it unfortunately. It looks like he will join the hugely popular 89 club.

    Alain Delon

    His ex-carer accuses his children of attempted murder Interesting that Delon stopped taking his medication for his lymphoma in July 2023, the month his ex-carer was kicked out of his house by his children.

    24. Jean-Marie Le Pen

    To stand trial with his daughter on alleged misuse of funds "An initial pre-trial hearing scheduled for 27 March will be followed by a more in-depth hearing during October and November."

    34. Daniel Barenboim

    Barenboim leading the BerlinPhil at the conclusion of 2023. Doesn't look like a worthy 2024 DeathList candidate at all based on these pics. Does anyone here know what "serious neurological condition" Barenboim has been suffering from?
