As the year draws to a close and lists continue to be drawn, it’s a time to also remember those that didn’t make to the end of 2013. The actors, directors, writers and more who contributed to the big screen fare we know and love, providing years and decades worth of work, who left us in 2013. And as always, TCM gets the season of cinematic remembrances off to a start with their annual reel paying tribute to those who have passed, though they are earning a bit more heat this year.
Cory Monteith and Paul Walker are the notable exceptions, though perhaps in fairness, neither of their movies are likely to be shown on TCM anytime soon. Still, they were major figures for a particular audience, and undeniably had fans of their work and left a rift in the pop culture sphere with their sudden losses. That issue aside, you’d be hard pressed to find any other major exceptions, so take a moment to watch the video below. The soundtrack is “In The Embers” by Sleeping At Last.
