Bill Paxton (1955 – 2017)

A few days ago, Bill Paxton passed away due to complications from surgery. For me, his most memorable role was always as Private Hudson in Aliens. So much so that I still quote his character in my daily life. With the news of his death I realized just how many movies I’ve enjoyed that he has appeared in: True Lies, Edge of Tomorrow, Apollo 13, Tombstone, Twister, 2 Guns, U-571, Navy Seals (he played God!), Predator 2 and The Terminator. Heck, even Stripes!. Funnily, he is only 1 of 2 actors with the honor of being killed off by an Alien, Predator and Terminator. 61 is really too young.

Good night sir. Rest well.
