2016 - Reaping a serious toll already.
Well, it seems 2016 has been off to a really awful start among celebrities so far.
Brian Bedford - voice actor of the anthromorphic fox Robin Hood in the old Disney Robin Hood animated movie.
Jason Wingreen - voice of Boba Fett in the original Star Wars trilogy.
David Bowie - Musician, played the Goblin King in the 80s movie Labyrinth.
Alan Rickman - Actor, played Hans Gruber in the first Die Hard movie, starred in Galaxy Quest, and played Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies.
Not to mention several celebrities who died right at the end of 2015, including Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead.
I can't personally think of a year that had this many high profile deaths so quickly, and I haven't even listed every one I came across.
