Star Wars Deaths

Recommended Posts

Such a massive death. He was the main star in what is considered to be the most popular horror movie of all time, The Exorcist. Max von Sydow should have had a thread of his own. I cannot  understate what a massive death this is in the world of showbusiness.

I suspect the his appearances in SW & GOT seemed to suggest his was in relatively good health. A bit like Nicholas Parsons.  A miss but not a massive blunder the are lots of 90 year olds who could have gone on

Though Nicholas Parsons was known to be in pretty poor health in the last few months of his life mind.

He was one of the greatest actors of his generation I suppose. He will be greatly missed !

But he didn't  make the list so a 'younger' man who was not known to have health issues would not be expected to.

Also played the single least convincing Columbo killer they ever had. I'd stress thats down to the writing, although his Irish accent is hilarious.

Daine Jir - Multiversal Omnipedia

 

He has one of the first lines in the whole Star Wars saga, quite a significant chap.

 

Jacqueline followed up her tweet to say that Lampert died of coronavirus in a care home.

RIP, the imperial officers in Star Wars are underrated IMO.
