The Dead Actors Tribute Thread

(1/96) > >>

Buck Pete:
Been meaning to do this for a while.  Similar to the Dead musicians thread I thought I'd start one for the actors who don't quite qualify as screen royalty and wouldn't really warrant a new thread.

Always find these type of threads good for kicking off discussions about the actor or the movies they appeared in.

Anyhow, I'll start with Marion Ramsey who died yesterday aged 73

Most of us will remember Marion as softly spoken Officer Laverne Hooks in the Police Academy movies.  A great character amongst many (in the original especially).


Sheer Magnetism:
Aww shit, Hooks is dead? That sucks.

The Bournemouth Red:
Can't believe she was 73, always think of her as Police Academy age.

Red Beret:
Damned, that's a shame. RIP. :(

Not the first to be lost.  The actor who played Tackleberry died in 2001.  He was only 50 something.

Buck Pete:
Academy award winner Cloris Leachman has died aged 94. 

Her credits list is huge including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid.  She won her Oscar for her role in The Last Picture Show.

Inducted into the Television Hall of fame.

Above all else, I will remember her for her work with Mel Brooks and as Nurse Diesel in one of my all time fav Brooks movies High Anxiety.

A funny lady - RIP
