Rob Zombie trauert um seinen Freund und Schauspieler Sid Haig
Ruhe in Frieden.
Während viele Fans von Rob Zombie auf den breiten Release seines neuen Films „3 From Hell“ sowie die Veröffentlichung seines neuen Albums warten, musste der Musiker jetzt traurige Nachrichten vernehmen.
Wie er auf seinen Socials wissen lässt, sei sein Freund sowie Schauspieler Sid Haig am vergangenen Samstag, dem 21. September im Alter von 80 Jahren verstorben.
Haig machte seinen Kollegen und Fans bereits in den vergangenen Wochen und Monaten durch eine zunehmend schlechtere, körperliche Verfassung Sorgen.
Tod von Sid Haig ist ein Schock für Rob Zombie und seine Kollegen
Zombie selbst ließ erst vor kurzem verlauten, dass er das Drehbuch zu „3 From Hell“ umschreiben musste, da Haig noch während der Dreharbeiten ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert wurde.
Haig übernahm die Rolle des Captain Spaulding bereits in den Filmen „Haus der 1000 Leichen“ sowie „The Devil’s Rejects“ und wird in „3 From Hell“ ein finales Mal in selbiger zu sehen sein.
Darüber hinaus blieb Sid Haig vorrangig dem Horror-Bereich treu und spielte unter anderem auch in „Halloween“ (2007), „Der Blob“ oder „Lords of Salem“ mit.
Unsere aufrichtige Anteilnahme gilt Haigs Frau, seiner Familie sowie seinen Freunden und Bekannten.
„Last night I received a phone call I was dreading from Bill Moseley. He told me that our friend Sid Haig had died. It was shocking but unfortunately not unexpected. I’ve know for a long time how sick Sid was and what he was battling. Over the past year as I saw pictures of him still attending conventions I thought perhaps he had beat it, but last week when he returned to the hospital I feared the worst.
Sid and I had a long talk on the day that he told me of his condition and he knew 3 From Hell would most likely be his last appearance on screen. Sadly it was. I knew it was very important to Sid that Captain Spaulding make one more round and he did. Sid’s time the film is brief. He was in rough shape that day, but he gave it his all and made his scene very memorable.
I was fan of his as a kid watching Jason of Star Command all the way through our twenty years of working together. I can still clearly remember the first time we met. It was at the Edith Head Costume building at Universal. Sid came out of the dressing room wearing a clown suit which was a few sizes too small. We said hello then we both started laughing at how ridiculous he looked in his ill-fitting suit. We would find him a much better suit.
As we were making House Of 1000 Corpses neither of us knew he was creating a character that would live on and grow in popularity every year. Sid told me many times how thankful he was for the Captain and how that character changed his life. He had completely given up on acting and now suddenly had found a whole new audience at the age of 60. I know he was thrilled and blown away by that fact.
The Captain is gone… but he will never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace Sid“
