Jonathan Brandis (1976-2003) "It." Died by hanging.
Jonathan had so much potential. You see him in "It" and he was Richard Thomas as a kid.
River Phoenix (1970-1993) "Stand By Me" Drug overdose.
River should have been nominated for "Stand By Me." Such raw talent, not pasteurized by over-training.
Dominique Dunne (1959-1982) Murder
Dominique was amazing in "Poltergeist" and I saw so much potential for her to be able to portray a wide range of characters with lots of hidden depths.
Heather O'Rourke (1975-1988) Bowel obstruction
Who didn't love Heather in "Poltergeist?" She was the embodiment of innocence and vulnerability.
Corey Haim (1971-2010) Pneumonia
Corey was a total blast in so many things he did. I adored him in "Lucas" and I laughed so hard in "Lost Boys."
