We’re still reeling from Bill Paxton‘s untimely death.
Especially now that details have emerged about the Titanic actor’s nerves surrounding his fatal surgery. So sad.
As we previously reported, over the weekend, the celebrated industry vet passed away due to complications following a scheduled heart surgery. And it seems Paxton was really worried about going under the knife, as director Doug Liman noted in a recent interview.
While chatting with the New York Daily News, Doug shared that Bill expressed some concerns about his surgery. Nonetheless, the Big Love alum stayed optimistic and vowed he’d return to work once cleared by the doctors. In an email sent to Liman back in January, the Aliens performer wrote:
“Thanks for the good wishes. It will help me face this ordeal. Don’t worry, ├óΓé¼╦£Sgt Farrell’ will be ready to report for duty.”
Oof. In case you forgot, Bill was slated to reprise his role in Liman’s Edge Of Tomorrow sequel. On Bill’s mentality prior to his medical procedure, the 51-year-old commented:
“Even facing major surgery, his optimism for the future was infectious. He was talking about the future, things we hoped to do together.”
Inevitably, it was a stroke in post-op which caused Paxton’s death and we’re not sure Hollywood will be the same without him. As always, our thoughts are with the deceased’s loved ones.
