Born Ariane Forster in Munich, Germany, the future punk rock goddess was only fourteen when she formed The Slits in 1976.

 

Reading and/or mathematics not your forte?

I see many of the old crew are still here, but did the lovely Amanda ever come back?

 

No.

Sadly true, but she's still around somewhere, as Facebook enthusiasts will confirm. Doesn't still have her car, sadly.

Denise Borino-Quinn, who played Johnny Sack's morbidly obese wife Ginny on The Sopranos, has died of liver cancer aged 46. I believe this makes her the first Sopranos cast member to sleep with the fishes.

I'm pretty sure that another cast member died a year or two ago.

Unfortunately I can't remember his name, so there is the real possibility that I could be speaking shite.

Not talking shite this time Windsor. John Costelloe shot himself in 2008. I'm sure there will be a post somewhere about it.

That rang a bell, so just checked back and it was reported here back in August but 2 of our members* seemed to have a bit of a fall out as to whether the info was reliable at the time.

 

* Well, one member and "Guest_iain_"
