In the wake of one of the most tragic and unexpected deaths of one of my favorite actors, Chadwick Boseman, I thought it would be fair to pay tribute to some actresses who weren't as well know and passed on way too early. We all know about Sharon Tate and Marlyn Monroe. But here are some actresses that you may not know, or remember, that tragically passed on before they reached their stardom. (Disclaimer: in order to provide organization, this list will be in a linear fashion starting with the oldest time of death to the most recent)

Prior to this post, I had never heard about this person and was fascinated about him when I read his story. You know that if I find something that interests me, I have to share it with you. So today, I’ll be sharing with you the story of a very renowned and very popular 419 star (i.e. fraudster) who lived a very lavish lifestyle all around the world until a very unfortunate ending caught up with him.
I sat on the couch and my grandmother sat in her recliner. We were watching, The Rifleman, on her black and white. It was her favorite program outside of Divorce Court. My aunts could not convince her that the couples in Divorce Court were actors. She would become quite upset at the drama sometimes, shaking her hand at the television and slipping into Slovene when English could not express the emotions the program evinced. My aunt insisted on buying the television, since my grandmother was alone during the day, as my grandfather had passed.
If Johnny Depp, armed with millions of dollars, the best lawyers money can hire, eyewitnesses to his injuries and abuse, tapes of his abuser assaulting him and photographic evidence of his injuries can't get his abuse taken seriously by the court, what hope do regular and normal people who are abuse survivors have in getting their justice? The tables are reverse in this scenario; in this case the abuser is the woman. Does that change anything? Apparently it does. But should it though? No.
Bettie Page's life was filled with cult myth, mystery and sadness. Her image captured the imagination of a generation with her free spirit and unabashed sensuality, during an era of strong sexual repression. She was the quintessential pin-up, tacked up on walls in military barracks and garages; five decades later, some feminists still hail her as a pioneer of women's liberation. It has been estimated that over 20,000 photographs of Bettie were taken, and new generations of fans still buy copies by the thousands. Born in Nashville, Tennessee to a part-Cherokee mother, she grew up in a family so poor "we were lucky to get an orange in our Christmas stockings." The family included three boys and three girls, and Page later said her father molested most of the girls. He eventually stole a police car for a cross-country trip, was caught and sent to prison, and for a time Bettie resided in an orphanage. Her parents divorced when she was 10 years old.

For many years British Gangsters have been idolised for their charisma, charm and bad boy image. The hallowing and spine cringing historic tales that scared and devastated British towns and communities with fear for decades. The extreme violence and horrific executions carried out as a sign of a consequence or a display of a physical warning to others. The fierce, terrifying code of conduct they live by with no exceptions. The speculation and secretive world they reside and hustle from that only comes to light via tabloid headlines and media coverage in extreme circumstances.
