They are falling like flies :(

Bob Hoskins is dead. He was only 71. What the heck is going on? It seems as though every week one of my heroes is no more.

Paul, not sure where you've recently seen this, and still sad nonetheless, as he was a great character, but he died two years ago, on 29th April 2014.......

Easily done! I'd have thought the same except in this case, I was sure I'd already heard about him dying a few years back....

I saw this on another forum and thought this is old news. Just to add I thought he was good in Zulu Dawn, mind you I don't think he did anything that was forgettable.

(Old adage we the human race should live 3 score and 10) maybe that is why we are seeing anyone born 1946 or before are moving on into their new life ?
( Hoskins was born in Bury St Edmunds, West Suffolk, on 26 October 1942 to Robert )

Nice place is Bury St.Eds. The West Suffolk Hospital is, I can honestly say, a fantastic hospital.

We grew up with these stars from the 50s onwards as it was the era of entertainment and more people had the oppourtunity to became household names, we know them, the are in our livingrooms. But at least they remain with us.
