Actor Gary Coleman died on Friday, May 28. Coleman, who enjoyed considerable fame as a child actor at the age of 11, suffered a brain hemorrhage and lapsed into a coma after falling at home. Coleman was at first awake and lucid after his hospitalization, but his condition deteriorated as he drifted in and out of consciousness. He was eventually placed on life support and never regained consciousness. Coleman was just 42-years-old.
Coleman passed away at 12:05 PM local time at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, Utah. His manager, John Alcantar, said the actor died both "quickly and peacefully" after he was removed from life support. He is survived by his wife.
What was your favorite episode of Diff'rent Strokes, the series which made Coleman a star? Is there a curse surrounding the show, as actress Dana Plato died (and her son actually committed suicide earlier this month) and actor Todd Bridges also suffered through drug addiction post-Strokes?
