RIP Patrick McGoohan
Sadly, the star of The Prisoner and many other roles Patrick McGoohan has died in Los Angeles at the age of 80.

I loved The Prisoner. It fascinated me when I was a child.

Wow, what a shame, another great gone. I too loved the Prisoner. As a kid when I watched it, I didn't understand all the allegory, but, it worked on it's own without the allegory.

Yes, I just heard about Ricardo Montalban today, and now this. :(

I have "Prisoner" on DVD, I had to have it to see if it made better sense to me. He had creative control on that one, and it was meant to be shorter than it was, isn't that right? And I enjoyed him in Ice Station Zebra very much, as well.

He's also the kind of actor who popped up a lot, unexpectedly.

He did great work.

I loved Ice Station Zebra, he was great in that. Also sucks about Motalban as well.

I was trying to figure out who this was... that summed it up nicely. ;)

He shall live on through Braveheart. RIP
