A familiar face to many here I am sure, Bill Paxton has passed away following complications from a recent surgery.

I was shocked by his sudden death. I have enjoyed watching his new series Training Day. I hope the series can continue.

The only person ever to be killed by a Terminator, an Alien, and a Predator.

Sad to read this. I particularly liked his performance in the series Big Love.

One of two. Lance Henrikson is the other.

To be theatrically semantic, incorrect.  The "character" portrayed by Henriksen that was damaged beyond repair by an Alien was an android (a synthetic or as preferred by Bishop, an "Artificial Person") was not in strict terms a person.  The "human" Bishop character of Alien 3 survived.

If you are willing accept bill Paxton's character being killed by being thrown against a gate in Terminator surely you won't quibble over that. ;)

On the internet, there is nothing  too insignificant to escape argument.
