You'll all have heard about this already, but I want to mention the passing of Roy Scheider, who I thought was an absolutely outstanding actor and seemed, the one time I saw him interviewed, not long after Jaws came out, to be a thoroughly decent man as well.
His connections with science fiction included 2010, which I enjoyed immensely, mostly because of his performance as Heywood Floyd, and SeaQuest DSV, which I have many happy memories of, mostly involving Stephanie Beacham.
I have a feeling Scheider was one of those actors you don't really miss until they're gone, and then you realise just how good they were.
