Death – Terminator Actors You May Not Know Passed Away

Death – Obituary

Prior to his unexpected passing, Bill Paxton had amassed a whopping 100 screen credits (via IMDb). Over his decades-long career, Paxton had also carved out one of the most adventurous, and well-rounded resumes in Hollywood, appearing in films and television projects too numerous and too varied to list here. Several of his most notable performances, of course, came in films helmed by James Cameron, including scene-stealing turns in 1985’s “Aliens,” 1994’s “True Lies,” and 1997’s “Titanic.”

That fruitful partnership began with Paxton’s brief appearance in “The Terminator.” If you’re having trouble placing his face in the film, you might need to picture the actor with spiky, electric blue hair and a wise-guy grin on his face. Yes, that was Bill Paxton portraying one of the unfortunate punks (alongside legendary cult actor Brian Thompson) who encounter Schwarzenegger’s big, bad, and buck-naked cyborg in the early moments of “The Terminator.” It was a small role, yes, but Paxton made the most of the moment, bolstering one of the film’s funnier scenes with all the wit, wisdom, and charisma he’d become renowned for.    

At age 61, Paxton underwent heart surgery in 2017 (per CNN), and he passed away days later.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
