Hollywood movie lovers are yet to recover from the shock of the sudden demise of legendary actor Carl Reiner who breathed his last on Monday. And here comes yet another heartbreaking news about the death of veteran actor Danny Hicks.
Danny Hicks who is known for his act in Evil Dead II (1987), Darkman (1990), Spider-Man 2 (2004) with various other films succumbed to cancer on Tuesday at 68 at his home in California.
It was only early last month when Danny Hicks took to his Facebook handle to pen down a heartfelt emotional note in which he stated that he approximately has 1 to 3 years to live. As he has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and he has not too many regrets.
Danny Hicks’ note read, “To all of the people that I never got to meet, and the 6,018 die-hard fans that enjoyed my work. I have some bad news. I have been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I have approximately 1 to 3 years to live. But I gotta tell ya, I sure as hell packed a whole bunch of living into my 68 years. I got no change coming back that’s for sure. And not too many regrets. Ok, gotta go. I’m gunna find out just what in the hell is going on down in that fruit cellar”
The fruit cellar that Hicks mentions is a reference to the gruesome cabin cellar where several bloody scenes take place in Sam Raimi’s 1987 horror film, Evil Dead II.
In his career spanning over 3 decades, Danny Hicks has acted in over 15 films.
