    Never forget

    Its still so sad about Andreas... Every time I hear him (as G'Kar), talking about "the part of me that is going will greatly miss the part of you that is staying"... whoo... it still gives me chills.

    Good grief, is it really a year already?

    It is so sad that he has passed, but we still have 5 years of his brilliance to cheer us...in memory, still bright.

    Cheers to Andreas. One year already

    I understand how you can get the feeling that celebrities don't seem real. They are just people after all and I know enough of them to not be star struck when I meet one.

    For some reason though, Biggs and Katsulas deaths' affected me in a way that no others have (save very close friends or family). I suppose it's the identification I have with the characters more than anything ... every role contains a bit of the actor who played it. I guess it's like looking at a multi-faceted diamond and only seeing the one side ... but sometimes you see one so brilliant even in the one facet that you just have to say "That's one hell of a diamond!"
    Most of us will only ever know the actor/character facet of these people ... but you can't help admiring them for being truly amazing and feel a sense of loss at their departure. Truly film is an amazing medium. It locks a performance and in essence, a moment in time can live on forever ... or as long as the record of that moment exists.
    Didn't mean to get so profound but these two deaths in particular brought me to a great deal of soul searching. So, I gave my moment of silence ... now I will toast up a pint and pop in ironically, "The Departed". I just rented it tonight ... hoping for a good film.

    It's kind of weird, but I have a hard time seeing celebrities as "real" people. I know it's wrong, but I instinctively think of them all as these people who act, go home and snort cocaine between benefit dinners, awards shows and Scientology getaways. I really like watching behind the scenes featurettes as they usually make the actors seem more human, if they ARE genuinely human. A lot of times, it just reaffirms the stereotype.

    The day I hear dof Andreas's passing I rewatched "Paragon of Animals" where his rewriting of the declaration of principles (even though some of it is read by Sheridan) strikes me so powerfuly, will rewatch again when I get up.

    It's still hard to believe that such an amazing talent is gone for good. I never met Andreas but I've never forgotten JMS saying in one of the DVD commentaries "Andreas...is god" so reverently. This was before his illness was known. The tribute that JMS wrote in the script books really brought to life the real man for those of us who'd only known him through his work.

    My thoughts are with his family.
