A Tribute to the Actors Who Died Way Before Their Time

With the recent passing of Heath Ledger still fresh in all of our minds, it makes me saddened to think of all the great actors who have passed way before their time. They were taken away from us too young, and it makes you wonder what great things they could have done today. We have to look aside that, and remember them for who they were, and all the amzaing accomplishments they made in their life.

Heath Ledger 28, 1979-2008


Chris Farley 33, 1964-1997


John Belushi 33, 1949-1982


James Dean 24, 1931-1955


River Phoenix 23, 1970-1993


Brandon Lee 28, 1965-1993


Brad Renfro 25, 1982-2008


Jonathan Brandis 27, 1976-2003


This is a thread to share your thoughts, pictures, and anything else you want add. R.I.P.

John Cazale.

The only actor in the history of cinema with a flawless filmography. And it depresses the shit out of me.

Tupac Shakur, 1971-1996

Died in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. Had a promising acting career from what I'd seen in Gang Related, Gridlock'd and Juice. Yet somehow he's also managed to release more albums dead than he has alive....

I believe she belongs up here.

She is the utterly amazing, and talented Karen Carpenter.

March 2, 1950 February 4, 1983-- died at the young age of 33.

don't forget Robert Shaw(From Russia With Love and Jaws, and that's just 2 of his films).
There's a good chance he would've become an Oscar-winning knight like his spiritual brothers Sean Connery and Michael Caine if he was still with us.

There's also Dominique Dunne(Poltergeist), a beautiful girl like her 'sister' Heather O'Rourke.
The others already listed deserve equal praise.

Whitney Houstin

Thsi was a sad loss

Even though she was around 46 yrs she is still regarded as young

Alot of actors get themselves involved in drink or drugs or in a bad crowd of people

Some can be strog and get out of this sort of thing and there will be some who can not pull themselves out
