Yaphet Kotto, star of Live and Let Die and Alien, dies aged 81

“The news was announced in a Facebook post by Kotto’s wife Tessie Sinahon, who wrote: ‘You played a villain on some of your movies but for me you’re a real hero and to a lot of people also. A good man, a good father, a good husband and a decent human being, very rare to find … Rest in Peace Honey, I’m gonna miss you everyday, my best friend, my rock. I love you and you will always be in my heart. Till we meet again!’ The cause of death was not given.” — The Guardian
