Actors Memorial Site: Notable Deaths & Obituaries

Actors capture the public imagination through their performances. Though we often come to know them only through the roles they play, the death of an actor can leave us with a very real sense of collective loss and grief. This memorial site was created to honor and remember actors whose deaths impacted our lives.
