andrewgunndirector Very sad to hear that David Warner has passed away. RIP Sir 🖤 I had the honour and privilege of working with David for a short time 10 years ago when he joined us on my short film trilogy The Caravan, co-starring alongside his friend and colleague Ian Puleston Davies. I had virtually no budget but he came all the way from London to work all weekend in an old, smelly caravan in a remote forest for two packs of pipe tobacco. Why? Because he loved the script and wanted to work with @ipd_ian again. He was a true scholar and a gentleman. One of the finest character actors ever to emerge from Britain, appearing in such classic movies as Tron, The Omen, Titanic, two Star Trek films and Time Bandits. I’m very fortunate and grateful to count him amongst my collaborators. He will be missed, not least by his partner Lisa who was always by his side and roughed the forest too, taking photos in the rain.

RIP Paul Sorvino: best known for his roles in "Law & Order" and, of course, as Paul (Paulie) Cicero in the masterpiece GOAT GOODFELLAS.  He was also a proud father of actress Mira Sorvino, Oscar & Golden Globe-winner for MIGHTY APHRODITE.  His portrayal of real-life mafia captain Paul Vario (renamed to Cicero for GOODFELLAS as Scorsese didn't want to explicitly name any real life mafia made men - only Henry Hill is the real life name used in the film) is a standard when discussing movie portrayals of mob bosses. 
He was 83

Growing up as a genre-loving kid, this actor was a juggernaut!  He elevated good films, and made bad films tolerable

I never got to meet her, but I was near her when she was at SDCC for that one Star Trek offsite with a makeup brand. There was a transporter photo op you could partake in.

No disrespect to Zoe Saldana or Celia Gooding, but OG Uhura is the best Uhura.

May Nichelle be communicating with the infinite cosmos.

She really did seem to be a sweetheart of a human being when it came to fans.  I met her once when she was signing at a booth and it was relatively dead (she had no one waiting); a friend of mine whose dad is an uber Trek fan got excited to see her and she happily chatted and took a pic with him.  My buddy didn't have the cash to pay for an autograph and told her that upfront and she was still incredibly polite and gracious to meet a fan.

I don't normally do autographs, but I did with her at comic - con in 2016. She was very nice.

I heard she was at the Con in 2017 and doing a panel, I think.  Hearing she was having some health issues, I skipped it. I wanted to remember as I saw her last.

Boy was he a major political figure when I was growing up.  For younger generations it may be difficult to really understand how big of an impact he had on a global political stage.
