Rob Zombie: ‘Rest in peace, our friend, Richard Lynch’

Actor Richard Lynch with the Zombies and Malcolm McDowell

From Rob Zombie:

“I woke up this morning to the news that our friend RICHARD LYNCH has passed away. Richard was great to work with and really gave it his all. I will never forget the way he scared the crap out of the kid actors in HALLOWEEN. As soon as I said action! He dove in his role of Principle Chambers at top volume. He will be missed.”

    Richard Lynch was one of the greatest actors I’ve ever had the honor of seeing, so I couldn’t let his passing go without expressing just how I feel. I’m one of the lucky few to be a Beta Tester for Pottermore, and the day Richard died I started working on a very personal tribute to him, the best way I could. I wanted something that felt dark, and maybe captured a bit of his remarkable career. It finally came together last night; DragonHawthorn26210. The Sword & The Sorcerer and The Lords of Salem in one shot.

    Richard would have made one Hell of a Dark Wizard.

    Thanks, Rob, for the great work you did with him.

    Hello guys…I could not believe it when I first read the commentary from Rob Zombie telling us: Richard Lynch has passed away. Dead! He has always been my fave actor and he was also an excellent one in every film he was in. An extraordinary actor and a very underrated one at the same time. I met him at Estepona Film Festival around three years ago and what a great honor to me it was!
    I hope your part in Rob Zombie´s LORDS OF SALEM will forever be remembered by every horror fan.
    I will miss you so much, my friend.

    Your friend, Agustin Ignacio
