    It's only a matter of time before the current 'Russian Opposition Leader" dies mysteriously.

    It would be nice to see Theresa May's name added to this list

    Don't know, I think it'd be nicer if she just somehow stopped doing the job she's clinging on to rather than died.

    Oh bloody hell!!

    This morning I woke up and for some strange reason, randomly thought of Barry Norman. Didn't have TV on and hadn't looked at any news.

    Just thought 'I wonder how old he is now and whether he will be soon to pop his clogs.'

    Just now looked at BBC News and see that he died.

    You have all been warned.

    They keep adding you to the death list, Houch and then keep having to rub you off again.

    Great actress and very attractive lady in her day. Sister of Joan Fontaine, another good looking woman and fab actress.

    A lovely pair.

    Olivia de Havilland had a lovely pair too.

    Martin Landau dead at 89.
    He turned down the role of Spock in Star Trek!
    I remember him from Mission Impossible but most of all I liked him in the series Space 1999.
    That was a brilliant series and most of the episodes are on Youtube.
    Definitely worth a look if you are into Sci-Fi.

    Must we include cult/niche/local 'celebrity in this. It will become very tedious else...virtually an obituary thread!

    Surely we are aiming at discussing those who are known to about 90% of people?

    Roger Moore - yes, George A Romero (& others) - errr...who?

    Very important player in horror film history, Bazza and a very well known figure for anyone who knows a bit about film.

    Also, have to add in to the mix that just because you or someone else hasn't heard of someone it doesn't mean they don't warrant any coverage.

    Case in point was when Philip Seymour Hoffman died a fair few people were contacting the Beeb to complain as why a bloke they had never, ever heard of had a section about his demise on the main TV news!

    Hoffman was only 46, but had already won one Oscar, one BAFTA, one Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar 4 times, a BAFTA five times, a Golden Globe five times and a Tony Award three times.

    Aye, George A. Romero is right up there in genre-defining directors.

    May not like or come across his work, but he's had more impact than most in the arts.

    Yeah, I find it puzzling too. You think of horror films and he is right up there with the likes of Wes Craven etc.

    You only have to watch the Walking Dead to see his mark written all over it.

    Ahead of Wes Craven ;)

    I can understand if you don't like the genre, but then if I don't like spy thrillers, was born in the 1990s, and was no fan of lecherous old men who could raise an eyebrow, I'd never have heard of Roger Moore either.

    (Fortunately, I'm a big fan of lecherous old men...o_O)

    You need to stop looking at yourself in the mirror so much, NW.

    Agree on Craven. Just put him up there because he is very well known.
