We’re paying our respects to all the prolific musicians, actors, comedians, and cultural icons who died in 2022. In October, we lost beloved comedian Leslie Jordan, Harry Potter alum Robbie Coltrane, and Broadway icon Angela Lansbury. The death of the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, at 96 rocked the world in early September, followed by the shocking deaths of PnB Rock, Louise Fletcher, and Jesse Powell. In August, “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Joe E. Tata, as well as “Insecure” star Denise Dowse, sports broadcasting icon Vin Scully, “Magnum, P.I.” actor Roger E. Mosley, and folk singer Judith Durham all died.
This year, we’ve also lost Hollywood icon Sidney Poitier, Miss USA 2019 winner Cheslie Kryst, “Bat Out of Hell” rocker Meat Loaf, funk pioneer Betty Davis, and “Full House” comedian Bob Saget. They all made lasting marks on their respective industries. Ahead, we pay homage to all the celebrities we’ve lost in 2022.
