TG:
Famous people are dropping like flies at present. I for one cannot be bothered to start a new thread for each one.

Actor bloke.

Snoopy:
It is a sign that we ourselves are not getting any younger. Those we grew up watching and admiring are all dropping off their perches. It comes as a surprise only because we see them still looking hale, hearty and young on the TV and in films. Who would , watching early Only Fools & Horses or Open All Hours, imagine that David Jason is really so old.

In Fools & Horses


In Open All Hours


And Now aged 68



Uncle Mort:
Is he dead then?

He is playing Rincewind the wizard in the Sky adaption of Pratchetts 'Colour of Magic' over easter. Sounds like major miscasting to me.  rubschin:

But I care not as since Branson fell out with Sky I cant get Sky 1.  point:

David Jason? .... Not that I am aware but he is on the TV a lot and the fact that this causes us to not notice the ageing process in Actors etc and that is why their deaths come as a surprise so often is what I was trying to demonstrate. According to this Mr Jason is alive and still earning. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/tv/article888952.ece
