‘Twin Peaks,’ ‘Black List’ Star Clark Middleton Dies 63 After Being Stricken With Virus

Clark Middleton the actor known for his memorable roles on ‘Twin Peaks’ and ‘The Black List’ passed away on Sunday at the age of 63 after being diagnosed with the exotic West Nile Virus.

As The New York Post reports:

“Thank you for your love and support for My Mister,” his partner Elissa Middleton confirmed Monday on Twitter. “I cannot count the number of times he said ‘Give the world your best and the best will come back to you,’ quoting his father Mel. And he meant it! He is in the light, happy and free, and sends love.”

Best known for his work in “The Blacklist,” “Twin Peaks” and “Kill Bill: Vol. 2,” the Hollywood veteran was fortunate to work with some of the best directors in the industry, including Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Ang Lee and Richard Linklater.

“I am so happy thinking of his newfound freedoms and I know his transition will be graced by the beautiful souls he loved who preceded him,” Elissa also said on Facebook. “We are so happy you loved him too and hope you will join us celebrating his remarkable life.”

She later asked fans to support the Clark Middleton Memorial Fund for arthritis research in his honor.

Middle suffered from a rare form of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis which stunted his growth at a young age and caused him significant pain throughout his life.

He died of Rheumatoid Arthritis and West Nile virus, not the catch all Covid. Both those diseases are well known killers.

DemRats are not immune to anything, we are all humans. Not all but some. I wonder what Chris Rock and SNL think about, as well as 99.9 % of the sick, evil minded Hollywireds.
RIP – never seen any of his movies, but never the less, every person losing life to this or others event is heard breaking.
