As the In Memoriam segment at Sunday night’s Emmy Awards proved, the last 12 months have been a death-filled year. So much so, in fact, that a number of notable deaths were omitted from the segment.
Among those missing from the list: Yvonne Craig, whose television roles included Batgirl on the 1960s series “Batman” and died in August at age 78, pro-wrestling legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who died at 61 in July.
Another prominent omission: Acting legend Christopher Lee who, while primarily known as a film actor, had dozness of television credits to his name, including “How the West Was Won,” “The New Adventures of Robin Hood” and “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.”
Other notable misses: Suzanne Crough, who played Tracy Partridge on the classic sitcom “The Partridge Family” and who died in April; and Sawyer Sweeten, the actor who played Geoffrey Barone on “Everybody Loves Raymond” and who tragically took his own life in April.
Daniel von Bargen, who played Kruger on “Seinfeld” and had numerous other television credits, including “Malcolm in the Middle,” was likewise left out in the cold, as was Ben Woolf, the actor who played Meep on “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” and who died in February at age 34 after being struck by a car.
George Coe, whose television credits included “Archer,” “Two and a Half Men” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was also absent from the In Memoriam segment.
