Three Shocking Deaths In Hollywood This Year

LOOKS LIKE THE saying 'they come in threes' came true in Hollywood this year. There were three shocking deaths among Hollywood actors this year. The first was the star of the acclaimed TV hit, "The Sopranos", James Gandolfini, who succumbed to heart attack while vacationing in Italy on June 19, 2013. He was only 51 years old. Next was "Glee" star Cory Monteith who died of a drug overdose on July 13, devastating his fans and his girlfriend, Lea Michelle. The third is Paul Walker, who perished in a car crash on November 30. He left his daughter called Meadow, 15 years old, born when he was 25 years old. The mom is his former girlfriend named Rebecca McBrain.

It's really sad and tragic to see much talent ending at a young age but they have left a legacy of films and TV shows that their fans can enjoy even if they've gone to the great beyond. Aside from "The Fast and The Furious" franchise, Paul's memorable films for us are "Joyride" with Steve Zahn, "Timeline" with Gerard Butler and "Into the Blue" with Jessica Alba. He left three finished movies: "Vehicle 19", an action flick about police corruption; "Hours", a drama where he plays a father trying to save his daughter during Hurricane Katrina; and "Brick Mansions", an action film from Luc Besson of "Taken" and remake of the French movie, "District 13".
