I’m not the first to put this out there but for whatever reason we lost a lot of good people this year. This may have been one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Go through a full list you wont believe it, especially in the world of music. But since my foray is classic TV I wanted to focus o that area. Because we lost a lot of great talent who kind of got forgotten by the larger names out there.
So I mean no disrespect to the legends like David Bowie, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Anton Yelchin, Natalie Cole, Arnold Palmer, Gene Wilder, Nancy Reagan, Alan Rickman, John Glenn, George Michael, or any of the talented people who passed away this year. But I wanted to focus on this specific genre, and yes many of the names I list also have decent movie careers but I am fousing on their TV work.
So here are twenty names from classic sitcoms, drama’s and news that we lost this year.
There are some characters out there that become so popular that even if you’ve never seen the show, you probably know who they are. I never watched One Day at a Time but I can still tell you who Schneider was. Harrington also did a lot of voice over work.
