Another sad update to bring you, as various publications are reporting the death of George P. Wilbur. Wilbur was brought in to portray Michael Myers in The Return of Michael Myers after production had already started, assisted with stunts in The Revenge of Michael Myers and later reprised the masked Shape for the initial production in The Curse of Michael Myers.

In addition to his work with what has retroactively become known as the Thorn Trilogy, Wilbur also did stunt work with many of our favourite Hollywood productions in the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. He was also a common figure at various horror and Halloween related conventions.

Recently, his likeness was used for a rather amusing sketch from an episode of Fox’s Family Guy, in which we find out that Tom Tucker is the alter ego of George P. Wilbur.

Rest in peace, George, and a heartfelt thank you for your contributions to the franchise and to movies as a whole.
