Blind Items Revealed #21 - Reader Blind Item - Kindness

November 20, 2019

This veteran character actor who passed away not too long ago could look very scary sometimes. He was primarily associated with films of a specific genre, the most famous being a trilogy directed by someone whose first career was not film.  Earlier in his career, he also made many appearances on TV including nine separate episodes of this show that has a reboot as a popular film franchise.

A few decades ago, this actor took a break from film due to his frustration with typecasting and took up another career, receiving formal training. This career involved a type of therapeutic practice. Many of the actor’s clients were those in the prison system seeking to break the poverty-jail cycle. The actor was paid for his work of course but when he eventually took up acting again he continued to do this service for free for those who are incarcerated helping them to change their lives for the better.

Everyone I know who had ever met him raved about what a kind and warm person he was.

So much this. A friend of mine has a poster with him in it that says “fuck you!”and my friend went on to say he was an absolute sweetheart.

I got to see him at a convention -- he was a great guy to listen to talk about his time in film. I miss him.

Sometimes, the best therapy one could receive is from a good listener.
