Nick Nicholson has died

Unfortunately, Nick Nicholson has just passed away. I never met him but a few of us who collect Filipino films got to know him thru the Filipino section at Dvdmaniacs, these film blogs, personal emails, and not least via Andrew Leavold who went to see him several times in the Philippines. And of course THE FILMS!! I watched him about a week ago in the movie DEATH BOND where he played a double-crossing sleaze-bag. Unfortunately, his health was no-way near the one he had in that film. Recently, he's suffered five heart attacks and had to struggle with having very little money and a hospital system which is beyond crappy. Unfortunately, his body gave up today.

His wife Annie has left this sad message on his blog. Annie, if you read this; I feel very sorry for your loss.

RIP Nick.
