Richard Hatch who played Captain Apollo in the 70's Battlestar Galactica movie n tv show dies aged 71...

Quote:
Tributes are being paid to actor Richard Hatch, who has died from pancreatic cancer at the age of 71.

He was the only actor to appear in both the original series of Battlestar Galactica and its more recent reboot.

Hatch played Captain Apollo in the original sci-fi series and a different character - Tom Zarek - in the reboot from 2004 to 2009.

Star Trek actor George Takei wrote on Twitter: "Rest with the galactic stars, Richard Hatch."

Ronald D Moore, who created the rebooted version of Battlestar Galactica, described Hatch as "a good man, a gracious man, and a consummate professional".

"His passing is a heavy blow to the entire BSG family," Moore added.

Hatch's son Paul confirmed his father's death in a message posted on the actor's website: "He died peacefully with his family and friends at his side after a battle with pancreatic cancer."

Dave Prowse, who played Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, tweeted: "Very sad to hear about Richard Hatch #RIP #Apollo."

Edward James Olmos, who starred in the Battlestar Galactica reboot, added: "Richard Hatch you made our universe a better place We love you for it. Rest In Peace my friend."

Hatch's other acting work included an early role on All My Children in 1971 and appearances on Dynasty, The Love Boat, Santa Barbara and Baywatch.

Edward Tipper, a Second World War paratrooper who was portrayed in the HBO series Band of Brothers, has died at the age of 95.

The hero passed away on February 1 in the Denver suburb of Lakewood, according to his daughter, Kerry Tipper.

Edward Tipper was a member of the famed Easy Company, part of the 101st Airborne Division, and parachuted into France as part of the June 6, 1944, Allied D-Day invasion.

The company's exploits were retold in Band of Brothers, based on research by historian Stephen Ambrose.

Tipper was interviewed for the HBO series and was portrayed by actor Bart Ruspoli.

A few days after the parachute drop, Tripper's eye and leg were badly injured by a mortar shell.

He was hospitalized for a year. Tipper was awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

He also received the French Legion of Honor medal in 2011, according to The Denver Post.

Doctors gave him a list of things he couldn't do, but that became a checklist for things to master, his daughter said.

'He was defiant above all,' she told The Denver Post. He took up handball, not because he liked it, but to prove he could do it, she said.

He was an avid skier and kept that up into his 80s, Kerry Tipper said.

After the war, Edward Tipper attended the University of Michigan and the University of Northern Colorado — then the Colorado State College of Education — and became a teacher.

His first teaching job was in Iowa, and then he returned to Colorado, teaching English and literature and running drama programs in Jefferson County on Denver's western edge.

'So much of what people talk about with him is what he did in the war. That was two years and really six days starting on D-Day,' Kerry Tipper said. 'Teaching was 30 years.'

Edward Tipper will be buried at Fort Logan National Cemetery.

He leaves behind his daughter Kerry, his wife Rosalina, and his son-in-law, The Denver Post reported.

Kerry told the newspaper: 'He would want to be remembered as someone that changed lives, that brought meaning to people's lives.

'He would want to be remembered as the incredible father and husband he was.'




RIP.
