    Rafiki passes away at 89...

    Shocked this was never mentioned here, in a TLK forum, but Rafiki has died.

    Robert Guillame, the voice actor behind The Lion King's resident sage shamman, Rafiki, passed away about a month ago. His cause of his death was prostate cancer, continuing the trend of TLK stars dying of the dreaded "C"; First Madge "Sarabi" Sinclair to leukaemia in 1995, then Suzanne "Zira" Pleshette to lung cancer in 2008.

    Our time on this planet is precious, and can be snuffed out at any moment. Every second of every day should mean something.

    I posted the news in Facebook group and the chat message. I'm not shocked that he died because he had a great career in his life, making a lot of impact in the industry and leaving a legacy that many generations will remember.

    It just sad to me that he didn't have the chance to watch the live action movie 2 years from now, I'm sure the film going to dedicate to him and others who passed away after the movie released.

    Very late to this but much RIP, just sad I sort of only knew him later on in life as Eli Vance in Half Life 2.
