Yep thats sad, Im wondering if she might have had an underlying health condition(s) as 53 seems rather young for a natural causes death. I thought her character in Vicar of Dibley was hilarious and the episode where Alice gets married is great too. The whole Vicar of Dibley series is unsung when you talk about 90s British comedies. It had a really good cast too. RIP

She had asthma and was allergic to animals, so it might have been due to that.

The Vicar of Dibley was an enjoyable show. Not AbFab or Father Ted level funny but still good.

The second one inspired the Suge Knight "all on the songs, all up in the videos" line at the Source Awards.

And about that religious cult he joined

Stair purchased a motel in Walterboro, South Carolina, and encouraged followers to move to the community, sell all their possessions, take a vow of poverty, and donate all that they owned to Overcomer Ministry. The community of about 70 strives for self-sufficiency and simplicity, growing their own food and making their own clothes. Community members live in mobile homes and handmade houses, eating communal meals and gathering for Saturday worship in the Tabernacle. They dress conservatively; women wear long skirts and men wear long pants and shirts with collars. Typically, work is divided along traditional gender lines, with men performing farm/manual labor and women doing domestic chores. Members primarily rely on bicycles for transportation within the community.

RIP Stephen Hawking, he lived 55 years longer than expected with ALS and his fighting the odds to be a pioneer in the science field is inspiring. One of the true great minds of our time.

Isao Takahata, Director and Co-Founder of Studio Ghibli, Dies at 82



Isao Takahata, co-founder of Japan’s Studio Ghibli, and acclaimed animation director, died on Thursday in a Tokyo hospital. He was 82.

According to local media, Takahata had been in declining health since last summer. A Studio Ghibli statement said he died of lung cancer.

Takahata joined Toei Animation after college and made his feature directing debut with the 1968 “Horus: Prince of the Sun.” In 1971 Takahata, together with Hayao Miyazaki and Yoichi Kotabe, left Toei for Shin-Ei Animation studio. His best-remembered TV work was “Heidi, Girl of the Alps,” that he directed for Nippon Animation.

In 1985, together with Miyazaki and producer Toshio Suzuki, Takahata launched Studio Ghibli. His “Grave of the Fireflies,” was released together with Miyazaki’s “My Neighbor Totoro” in 1988. The two films did modest business, but later grew in esteem as classics of the animated form.

Takahata enjoyed greater success with “Pom Poko,” a 1994 fantasy-adventure that was chosen as Japan’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.

After the flop of 1999’s “My Neighbors the Yamadas,” he took a long hiatus from directing. He returned with the 2013 “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.” Based on the classic folktale “The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter,” the film was animated with a water-color-like beauty and fluidity seldom seen in commercial animation.

Though Takahata was not an animator, he was an innovator, constantly seeking fresh storytelling methods and artistic approaches, while aiming for realism of emotion and setting.

RIP. It's a shame his last years had most of his fanbase turn against him because of the retirements and brief comebacks were frustrating and the bizarre explanation for the last retirement.
