Surprising. He genuinely was a big name of stage and screen. His death’s pissed me off hugely.

I would say for me personally this is the saddest celebrity death in a while that both shocked me and made me say "oh no".Really talented guy who had a tremendous range who although in his 50s it seemed his career had only just peaked in recent years meaning there is a sense he was at the height of success then gone.I think the sudden announcement meant it was like a jolt out of the blue.Have to say I was surprised he was only 54.

Joseph Siravo: The Sopranos and Jersey Boys star dies aged 64

I remember him as a very extremely hazardous son of a mob boss full of anger and thirsty for revenge in "Carlito's Way".

Great film.

Lee Aaker, famed when he was 11 as the 50s child star of "The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin", has died at 77.

He passed away alone and unclaimed... and was listed as an "indigent decedent". :(

Here with Geraldine Page, John Wayne and Ward Bond in "Hondo" (1953):

Helen McCrory has died of cancer aged 52. Actress in everything - Skyfall, Harry Potter films, Quiz, Dark Materials, The Queen, Penny Dreadful etc etc. That's a shock!

 

Helen McCrory dead - Peaky Blinders and James Bond star dies aged 52 - Mirror Online

I quite fancied her in Peaky Blinders, was one of the few things I saw her in where she didn’t play a haughty bitch. Shame
