This is one of those deaths that really blinded sides you. Reminds me of how I felt hearing the news about Heath Ledger and Kobe. I thought I was misreading who had died.

Apparently he was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer back in 2016 and even with treatment and numerous surgeries it advanced to stage 4! I had seen pictures of him a few months back and he looked really thin but I didn't know he was so sick!

Wow, I haven't watched/read the news today so this was the first I heard about Boseman. He was a fantastic actor—I thought he was brilliant as James Brown in Get On Up, and of course as T’Challa in Black Panther. It was only a week or so ago that I read that he was going to be producing an upcoming show with Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, The Orville etc) about the 1957 landmark Supreme Court decision of Brown v. Board of Education.

Re: Tributes Thread

Colon cancer is a brutal cancer.  My mother had it.  It's hard to believe that he was able to gut through it (with chemo and surgeries) for four years and even crank out both of the last two Avengers films while dealing with it.

43 is too young.  The Heath Ledger comparison is appropriate, especially since both actors were approaching their peak years as actors.

Re: Tributes Thread

One of my favorite Diana Rigg performances is one you don't hear a lot about. . .as Lady Dedlock in a 1980s serial version of Dickens's Bleak House.  She conveyed a lot: decaying glamor, guilt, shame, fear. . .  She really was a wonderful performer.  Rest in Peace, Milady.

Very sad to hear of the death today of the beautiful and immensely talented Dame Diana Rigg, the one and only Mrs Bond. One of the best and most fully-rounded Bond women from the best Bond film, OHMSS.

RIP Diana Rigg

For Bond fans, Diana Rigg's Tracy will always remain a key figure in the series' history and legacy.

Very sad to hear of the passing of this fine actress.

Critics and material I don't need. I haven't changed my act in 49 years.

This one really hit me hard, too. In his short time, Chadwick Boseman not only showed what an outstanding actor he was with a handful of truly memorable roles (especially James Brown and, of course, T’Challa/Black Panther). But by all accounts he was also a tremendous human being as well. Truly a heartbreaking loss.
