He left an indelible mark on the horror genre.
He and his colleagues on ‘Night of the Living Dead’ created a whole new monster; the flesh eating zombie.
That’s a huge sub-genre, especially today.
I loved him in Space: 1999.
My family used to get Mission: Impossible VHS’s out of the library all the time. It was one of my favorite shows as a kid.
Mission Impossible and Space 1999 for me, but I was always happy to see him turn up in a role, TV or film. He was appearing in TV and films until very recently, he really enjoyed his work and he worked a lot.
Welcome Home, Johnny Bristol.
I have only the vaguest of memories of him in Mission Impossible, but I loved him as James Mason’s henchman in North by Northwest.
And I don’t care what anyone says, he deserved that Oscar. His performance as Bela Legosi was quite touching.
And regarding George Romero - I came across this in the Guardian.
Damn that’s sad. I was a big Linkin Park fan when I was younger.
Really sad. I feel for his family and friends. Just such a messed up way to go.
Shocked and saddened. I still loved his band.
He was another, very talented, character actor who turned up everywhere. RIP.
