I always thought he was older for some reason, I was surprised to read that he was only 77.

Loved Battlestar Galactica when I was a kid. Must dig out the DVDs.



Also Alan Simpson, writer of some of the best comedy Britain has ever known. Hancock and Steptoe & Son. RIP.

It (Abruptum, Ophthalamia, War and a few others).
Deeply saddened by this. Via Dolorosa is in one of my all time fave black metal albums. Top 10 easily.

A lesser known, but quite sad - Neil Finnleton, at 7ft 7 was Britains tallest man, dead at 36. Played in the NBA before moving to acting and played the giant Mag The Mighty in Game of Thrones and The Fisher King in Dr Who

Bill Paxton was in so many of the films I grew up with. Check out Frailty if you haven't seen it.
