Nick Nicholson passes away…

About 3 months ago, I interviewed James Gaines (you can read the interview here), one of the american actors who settled down in Philippines in the 80′s, and made a successful film career there.

Approximately at the same time I asked Nick Nicholson for an interview (who, in fact, appeared in many movies with Gaines, and from what I know was good friends with him). Nicholson was well-known in Philippines, and appeared in about 60 movies there.

Nicholson was a very down to earth guy, at least that’s what I thought when we were talking. At one point, he got very surprised, that someone in Azerbaijan really watches these old philippino action movies.

3-4 days later, Nicholson vanished, and was never seen again. At first I thought, he just changed his mind, and didn’t want to talk to me anymore (although he promised to do the interview, and I even sent him the questions).

But, couple of days ago, I (accidentally) found out, that Nicholson passed away. Some guys on a movie forum were discussing a movie, where Nicholson appeared, and mentioned him.

I didnt get it back then, and decided to check. And, unfortunately, both James Gaines, and Max Thayer (another actor, friend of Nicholson, I suppose) confirmed the sad news.

I never knew Nicholson, yet I felt sad, because had I asked him to do the interview couple of days earlier, he might have done it. Very sad. Rest in Peace.

Quite soon the CGI will become so good, that filmmakers will be able to "revive" long deceased stars. Your thoughts?
