Seymour Cassel has left us

Post by Hilary the Touched » Fri Apr 12, 2019 12:18 pm

I couldn't find a forum for Passionada, so will just leave this here.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/ob ... 5b79d792fb
A million years ago, the Lost Girls convened in New Bedford, MA, for the local premiere of Passionada; tragically, JI didn't make it (I forget what he was off filming), but both Lupe Ontiveros and Seymour Cassel did, and were incredibly gracious to us. Oh! Gov. Dukakis came to the party! It was a big damned deal.

I had no luck with that link. Here are British obituaries from The Guardian and the BBC:

Thanks for that, Servalan--I assume the WaPo link was inactive for you because you're in the UK.

When I read the news I was sad. He was so gracious and I had very fond memories of that Passionada Premier. He was very kind.

I remember that gathering... so sad to hear he passed...
Since I was local I did not stay at the hotel and missed meeting him

Yes, I'm back... it's been awhile..
