The recent death of actor Anton Yelchin has called us into consciousness that 2016 many of our beloved actors have died.
Soon his final film Star Trek Beyond starts in the German cinemas, but unforgotten will also be his work Hearts in Atlantis and the miniseries Taken by Steven Spielberg.
Also Doris Roberts left us this year after six decades of television. Many will remember her as Raymond Barone’s mother, Marie Barone, on the long-running CBS sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond (1996–2005). She received five Emmy Awards and a Screen Actors Guild award during her acting career.
