Not sure how often anyone pops by here these days, but I'm sure most of us still love the movie and have heard the sad news. Based on the comments around the internet and the fact that two coworkers told me separately, it's been a bit of comfort to discover how many people knew of and appreciated Anton even while his star was still rising, even if just from Fright Night. He's worked with so many big names who've had nothing but respect and praise to share since his passing.

Has anyone seen Green Room, the new movie Anton and Imogen did together? Their chemistry was so genuine and cute in Fright Night, so I was sold there. Green Room is supposed to be very good, especially the acting. (Had a very limited run here so I missed it, but the DVD/etc drops next month.) Here's the red band trailer (heads-up for violence).

One other item of interest: in 1989, when he was a baby and his parents had just emigrated from Russia, they did an interview with the LA Times. "A woman came up, saw Anton, and said, 'He's beautiful. He will be actor.'"

(I'm sorry, I hope this isn't terribly off-topic for the kinkmeme.)

I wrote a fair amount of the stuff on this kinkmeme (anon, of course), but I've since posted it elsewhere and the fics get a fair amount of love. I've been thinking of taking them down, though. I mean, I won't. But I'm not going to read at all in this fandom for a good long time. Maybe ever. :(

I was devastated by this loss. I still am. So much potential. So great already. Sigh.

He was definitely Going Places. After Fright Night, I noticed he was just one of those actors that kept showing up in stuff I watched. Have enjoyed every one of his films that I've seen (incl. Green Room, finally!).

Do what makes you comfortable re: your fics, obv, but I don't think leaving it up would be weird or disrespectful, if that's what concerns you. It's so nice to see other fans and find quality fic in a small fandom.
