Dead Actors

The most upsetting thing in cinema is when an actor/actress dies. You can really feel that they are gone, and they will haunt you forever. With filmmakers it is also painful, but for me it is a logical pain and somehow these directors never completely vanish. But the emptiness left behind after the passing of an actor is so upsetting because they have used their face and entire body as an instrument. I feel this loss very personally, because when you watch a great actor/actress you become intimate with them. When they die, it can be devastating.
