Richard Lynch Passes

A Character Villain is Gone

By Robert T. Trate     October 05, 2012

Deadline is reporting that character villain actor Richard Lynch has passed away. Lynch was 76. In a career that spanned over 40 years, Lynch may not have been a recognizable name but his face was always one of the villains. His most recent role was that of a serial killer in Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake in 2007. He’ll make his final appearance in Zombie’s Lords of Salem. A short list of his roles include appearances in: Bad Dreams, The Sword and the Sorcerer, Scarecrow, The Ninth Configuration, Battlestar Galactica, The A-Team, Six Feet Under, and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Mania’s thoughts go out to his family. 

Thanks to Moz72 for the submission.

 Didn't Mania report this when he died back in June?

I thought he died a couple of months ago?? Did he die AGAIN? Interesting!

I practically grew up watching Mr. Lynch on many tv programs. RIP Mr. Lynch

Yes. Lynch has been gone for months now.  Find a low budget gem called "God Told Me To" and look for Lynch as the villain, and a brief role by Andy Kaufman as a cop who goes postal on a parade crowd.

 Err... yeah.

A little out of date with the story.

And in other current events...Tony Scott is gone too!

Soirry was my bad. I was on their site and I saw the article in bold, but did not realize the date. Again, sorry about that, but I actually didn't know he passed in June. Must have missed that.  Sorry Rob

Err... umm.... Rob Trate??  You do realize he died back on June 19 don't ya??  So you're telling me that after he died in the summer, he either faked his death or resurrected to die again today?!?

Plain and simple question... who screwed up reporting it?  Because I still see his obit as June 19.

Sorry guys... I was sent this story Moz72 today... sorry I missed it originally and thought he was worth remembering.

I didn't know he died then either.  Must have missed that entirely.  Wow Sword and the Sorcerer, now that brings back memories.  Not good ones, but memories.

I hadn't heard either, RIP Richard.


Look in SciFi NOBODY stays dead forever. (soap operas too) so this is the ultimate villian 2nd death! He will be bak and more evil next time...
