I just heard about this 15 mins ago. Really sad and unexpected news.

He's been in some of my favourite films, including my top two (Aliens and The Terminator). He was great in Weird Science and many others, too.

This is very sad!


What an impact on classic movies though, he was killed by the big three, the Terminator, an Alien and a Predator.

I guess he can finally demand the old lady tell him where the Heart of the Ocean was all this time, R.I.P.

So many great films, big budget and small.

He was great in Near Dark.

Must say it was quite a shock to hear of his passing :(

Never knew him by name until today but definitely some memorable roles there. I didn't know that the lead punk from the Terminator, the headless chicken in Aliens and the guy looking for the diamond necklace in Titanic were the same person but IMO that's the hallmark of a good actor - making the audience believe in the character instead of making them think "Oh no, not him again!".

May he rest in peace.

I believe he is the only actor to be killed by a Terminator, Predator and an Alien! I also loved him in True Lies as the car salesman/fake secret agent! Truly great loss to the world, RIP Mr Paxton

Is it wrong that I remember him most for being turned into a huge poo by Kelly Le Brock?

Lance Henrikson has been killed by all three as well. And it was True Lies, not Eraser, for the car salesman ;)

Technically Bishop wasn't killed by the Alien, despite being ripped in half. Ripley disconnected him in the following film, after he asked her to once she'd got the black box recordings from him. Nerd oneupmanship!

No - because the character he plays in that is a bit of an @rsehole! :lol:

Sad to see Mr. Paxton go. We'll remember him for his iconic roles in the various films mentioned. RIP Bill.

Although you could also argue the Terminator may not have actually killed him. He gets thrown backwards into the bars but it's never explicitly shown or mentioned that Arnie killed him or the guy whose clothes he stole
