You never expect them to, don't you?  
Just read over at Spiegel Online that German actress/voice actress Elisabeth Volkmann has been found dead in her Munich flat

She's been the German voice of Marge Simpson for over a decade, and strangely enough one of my very first conscious television memories. I still can see her as the shrill, neurotic mother of the "Klimbim family" (Klimbim was a somewhat bawdy comedy show we had in the 70s and early 80s). I wasn't allowed to watch that programme, but once managed to catch a few glimpses of one of their sketches. Someone (uncle? aunt?) pointed out to me that the actress' last name was the same as my mother's maiden name.

You never expect the TV people you grow up with to die, don't you

No, you don't, really. How strange to think that, for example, James Doohan or DeForest Kelley are not with uns any longer; persons whom you literally saw growing old on TV and later in the movies.

Ah, Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerent ;-)


But now off to work ;-). See you this evening. Looking forward to that :-))
