    Great actor and loss to the industry at a relatively young age.

    You mean film-makers of sorts. Its the actors who are the celebrities. Not the directors & producers.
    And 'anyone who know a bit about film' I suspect is an admission of it being much less than 90%

    I assure you I don't think of horror or any particular films. I suspect a lot of people would know who is, but his death (no disrespect to him btw) means little or nothing to at least 75% of us.
    Whereas virtually everyone over the age of 15 probably would identify people like Roger Moore...he is a celebrity/public figure. Romero is a bloke who made horror (niche) films

    25 maybe, but not 15 I would say.

    But does it really just matter whether most people have heard anything about someone? Surely it matters just as much how important they are to the field they were in.

    Romero was very famous to anyone who likes their movies. Don't have to be a horror fan. Just a movie fan would do it. And there wouldn't be 28 Days Later and the Walking Dead without him, so I dare say an awful lot of TWD fans will most certainly know of him and admire him too.

    Been a few deaths on here announced where I have had to look the person up, but they have still deserved their place for what they have achieved and the legacy they have left. :)

    No. I am the sole judge of these things...because I have no interest or only shallow interest in anything whatsoever except ME. AND Coventry City. And sex.

    And as you probably just have sex with yourself that makes just two things. ;)
