Remembering Bill Paxton
I don’t remember how old I was when I first saw Bill Paxton’s acting, but I remember the movie. It was Weird Science, where he played the older brother Chet. I must have been early teens, and I remember being scared of the guy.
It was announced all over social media today that Bill Paxton died at age 61. You can read about it here. I of course was shocked and dismayed. You see, I didn’t think that Bill was 61 already, I still pictured him as either Chet or as Bill Harding in Twister.
Bill Paxton was also known for his roles in Titanic and Aliens. He was a great actor and his presence will be sorely missed. I think I am going to watch some of his movies, in his honor, and enjoy them one more time.
RIP Bill, we won’t forget you.
