Death Notice for Jennifer Daniel, Welsh actress, who had roles in Adam Adamant Lives! and Doomwatch. http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/deaths/217005/landen

 

Also had roles in Hammer movies The Kiss Of The Vampire and The Reptile, but it's too late for me to search for the B-Movie thread. ;) Was the widow of the actor Dinsdale Landen.

B-movie veteran Dick Miller (b. 1928) is worth keeping an eye on, did make a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo in Joe Dante's The Hole last year. Also Clifton James (b. 1921) best known for playing redneck sheriff J.W. Pepper in the James Bond films Live and Let Die & The Man With The Golden Gun.

 

Though I'm sure he's been mentioned countless times already (but I can't be arsed to check) B-Movie king Roger Corman (b. 1926) is also one to watch, still producing as of last year.

Appeared in all of Joe Dante’s films in some fashion I believe

Don’t know him by name or face.  So he’s a nobody.  Shoulda been in Dickless thread anyway.

He famously played a character named "Walter Paisley" in 5-6 films in his lifetime.

Julie Strain turned out to be the victim of a cruel death hoax...

However, actor Stan Kirsch, best known for starring in the television series Highlander as Richie Ryan, the protege of Duncan McLeod, is dead.  And unfortunately, this is not a hoax...

So is that a "she is dead but we don't want to announce it just yet" premature obit or a full-blown hoax?

Full blown hoax.  While Julie Strain is gravely ill and barely making it, she's still alive.  She could dead at any moment though.

Suspect a friend heard about a bad episode or turn for the worse and ran with it. Turned into a game of Telephone.
