2 hits in the space of half an hour-Must be a record! 

Tony Booth and Liz Dawn both died on the same day and their deaths were announced the following day within the same hour.

Out of curiosity, I checked the old threads, and it looks like the first posts on the Tony Booth and Liz Dawn threads about their deaths were 52 minutes apart. Today, the first posts on Rosalynn Carter and Joss Ackland's threads about their deaths were 24 minutes apart.

I was watching TV and when I checked my phone to see this and Rosalynn’s death it was quite a shock.

Can’t believe he didn’t make it to his 24th birthday. :(

For any pedants out there, his Variety obituary says he died in the morning, so that'd make him the 14th hit and Rosalynn the 15th.

Respect to Rosalynn (RIP) but Joss Ackland was famous for a lot more than being married to someone famous. A top actor who I'm amazed lasted as long as he did given he looked really old in the 1980s and was quite overweight in later life. RIP

In 2016 this would've been a double record. Strange name he had btw.

Would be ironic if Shane Macgowan were to follow seeing as Ackland was in the video of the single which beat the Pogues to the punch in Xmas '87!*

 

 

 

 

 

*PSB won the battle but the Pogues definitely won the war though.

She was 96 and had dementia. How the fuck is her death a shock.

If anything, it's the escape we all want. She didn't have it for that long at all. Compared to say Sybling Faulty having for a s long as I've been alive.

He was born on 29 February, so you could argue he died at the age of 23!

I was thinking, has anyone ever been born on 29 February and also died on 29 February? I mean what are the chances.

Apparently 1 in 2,134,521. This guy, a mechanical engineer from the states, managed the feat.
