It’s amazing how much of an impact someone we’ve never actually met can have on our lives. But that’s the magic of movies and television: sometimes the actors we grow up watching can feel just like family. They’re like old friends who are always there for you with the click of a remote, and it feels like they’ll be there forever. Sadly, however, we’ve had to say goodbye to many talented performers in 2018, and most of us probably never had the opportunity to tell them how much they mean to us. But thanks to the memorable characters they brought to life on the big screen and on our TVs, these actors will never really leave us. In fact, they’ll always be there exactly the way we remember them, and they’ll never be more than a few clicks away. The circumstances surrounding these stars’ tragic deaths all vary, and while many expired from age or illness, some made the choice to take their own lives.
